After becoming a mom 15 years ago, and after a life changing event, I have become involving art and craft for years. I still have great passion about it, I do all kind of art even though I am not formally trained. I just follow my heart to create.

New to this group, and say HI to everyone!

I'm a child and youth worker, and part of my job is to use the arts as a means of expression for the troubled kids I work with. Painting is my favourite, especially finger painting. It just really allows you to be free.

Hi Peichi!

I agree, creating art and crafts is very thearapeutic. I think it also cleanses your mind and your soul. Although I've received formal training in art I don't think that's what makes a person an artist. It is a deep passion and I find that when I set aside what I've learned and be spontainious, you can end up with something unique and beautiful.

Nice to meet you and welcome to the group!
