Hello Dear Friends....
I am so glad you have stopped by! WELCOME to
The Red Door Studio blog. I hope you will visit often
as I write about my artistic journey.
I am very very lucky to say that I am a full time Artist.
Although, I spent many years as a computer analyst, I decided
to pursue my dream of having a life immersed in art and
creativity when the company I was working for, Pizza Hut, Inc.,
decided to move their corporate office from the city where
I live to a completely different state.
Today, I work as a Product Designer/Illustrator creating
mass market products. And, I am excited to say that a
number of my designs have sold in retail stores such as
Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Lowes, BJs, and Walgreen Drugs.
But when I am not illustrating retail product, I spend my
time creating collage art. Paint, fibers, pen and ink, along
with vintage ephemera are just some of the mixed media
elements used in my collage work.
I have also found that a very important part of being an artist
is sharing my work with others. Whether I am selling products
at a discount store, showing my art in a gallery or show, teaching
new techniques to fellow artists, or talking about art with friends,
clients, and family, sharing is a way for me to continue to revel in
this creative life.
Now, I am a blogger, too!
