A clean slate

Hello there! As I sit here I am feeling a little overwhelmed by this 'blog' world. I have been avoiding this first post because as we all know first impressions are ever lasting. I suppose that I should introduce myself to those of you that do not know me. I am an artist, currently living in Richmond, Virginia. I graduated in 2005 with a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, my major was crafts with an emphasis in textiles. During college my work was primarily based in textiles, there were times that I played with other mediums but I was seduced by fibers, and the loom was my muse. Since college I have been working what some would call 'day jobs' and then working on art outside of the work place. I have become very interested in working with different mediums and making whatever my heart desires at the moment for the past two years. I admit there has been some horrible little creations in this time, but there have also been some wonderful discoveries that have come from the freedom to make what I feel. Working a full-time job aside from making, makes it hard sometimes to find the time to produce work, but it is a balancing act that I am becoming skilled in. One of my goals for this year was to put my artwork out into the world a little more and get some feedback. That is one of the things I miss the most about art school, the constant feedback and art community. That is one of the reason's that I decided to start this blog.
I will not bore you to much longer with this post, but I will be updating frequently and I am very open to commentary, good and bad.
