I'm an artist Mom too! I struggle trying to find the time to do both effectively. Feel free to visit and say, "hi". I love talking creative process with other parents. http://watchingthepaintdry.typepad.com/
I mostly work with acrylics since they are easier to deal with and dry faster. I love oils paints but those got packed away before the kids were born.

I love painting, jewelrymaking, quilting, and photography. Not that I'm an expert at all of them, but I love to do them all!

I LOVE photography, it's an outlet for me with having two girls!! I have even managed to get them to shoot with me while we are out hiking and any other outdoor activities we do. I just wish I could afford school and become more professional, maybe some day!!! For now I'm just ur average amatuer photographer but with a LOT of passion!!!!

I love photography. I hope to one day be good enough to open up my own studio. :-) Living in Germany is the most perfect place to practice taking pictures.

I used to do alot of charcoals and pastels. I love historic sites. When I lived in Germany, I did charcoals of old castles and villages.

I have not gotten back into it yet..............I am sooooo busy with work. I am writing, but it is a slow process due to my work schedule.

I dabble in pretty much every kind of visual art. I used to take acting/drama/dance when I was younger, but not anymore. I like to paint little figurines, and I just sculpted my first unicorn out of clay (turned out pretty good!).. I don't draw much, anymore, I've moved on to more challenging mediums. I'm also an aspiring novelist.

3-D Studio type stuff. I haven't been able to sculpt for a while from pregnancy and now a toddler, but when she's older, I want to do bunches of maternity or baby figurines.

I love photography and have done some wedding photography - but it has been put on hold whilst pg with no 4!
I also make cards and do cross stitch - but not done much lately as been getting work done in the house!
I would love to get into scrapping - but just can't get the time together to start it!

I'm a web and graphic designer, so I like that, but I'm appreciative of surreal art.





As for myself I like to draw and paint, though not too good at either. I studied Performance Arts at school, was first clarinet in the school stage and concert bands, performed lead roles in school musicals, etc.

Photography, acrylic painting, poetry and short stories and singing I used to play violin, and I have been thinking of picking it up again.

I love taking black & white photographers, they are beautiful and make features stand out!

Photography is what I'm into right now, although I'm interested in almost any medium of visual art. I would LOVE to learn to paint - I have total respect for anyone who can pull it off in even in an elementary way.

Hello, I am new to the group. Just recently I started getting into altered books using acrylics, gel medium, vintage photos and other pieces to my work. I scrapbook as well but this offers me a place to get out of my comfort zone and create something completly different.

I just opened my own photography studio and am having a blast with it. I also sing, draw, and play a couple of instruments. I am trying out digital scrapbooking, as I love to scrap but have no time with 4 kids! :)

I am a scenic artist for a theatre company so my painting usually ends up being on a canvas about 30'-0 x 60'-0. But since I had my baby I have been focusing more on projects that are a bit smaller. Recently I have become really interested in what I can to with different types of dyes and paint. When left to my own devices during nap time I tend to get a bit out of control.and these small projects I start have begun to eat up my home.
