I decided it might be best if I showed you whatever I am currently working on. This gives you a glimpse into what I make and why. Because I always have half a dozen things going at once there will never be a storage of material. First, a little info about me, then onto the projects:
It's Dragon RAGE Studio because my initials spell out rage and I was born during the year of the dragon.
I sew. I don't draw beyond sketching out designs or patterns. I rarely paint, other than a bit of crafting, because I am very particular about how things should look. I find painting easier than drawing. I suppose in either case, I would need to do it much more often than I do to get good at it.
I like Steampunk and occasionally do art with metal. My husband usually gets involved with my steampunk art. I find pieces and he welds it for me. When we work together, we're making art for ourselves, not to sell.
My husband is actually very good at drawing. He drew a wolf howling at the moon on leather. I embroidered it and we gave it to my father-in-law for Christmas. I would like to do more projects such as that. I enjoy working with my husband.
Artist is my 'real' job. I sew every day. I started doing quilts. Now, I do lots of needlework. I still make the occasional quilt. My husband is an airplane mechanic. My father-in-law is also an artist. He was a technical draftsman in the Navy. He made models of ships. These were given to retiring crewmembers. He still draws and makes sculpture. We are both members of the Columbus Artists Guild. We frequently become involved in the same shows or events.
I have five children, four stepsons and my little daughter. I would like for my daughter to be an artist, but really I will be pleased and proud as long as she is happy. I drag most of my children to art shows. I frequently tell my adult sons the art world is a great place to meet women. I don't think they believe me. All of them are accustomed to art supplies spread across the kitchen and all five know not to touch my scissors.
The first fox is nearly done:
As I finish, start, and ship off art, I'll update this page. I can't give you a time frame because some things can be made in a day and other art I spend a year making. All I can promise is I work on art every single day.
I intend to make boxes. Here's one I made for my kitchen:
