Heather Kent December's featured artist
So We have chose the wonderfully talented Heather Kent to be our featured artist for December. She handpaints these wonderful water color necklaces and large paintings of dogs. you can see her work on etsy or at her blog. even keep up to date with her on twitter. Links will be listed below.
Q.) How long have you been creating and what really got you into it?
A.) I have been creating art all my life in one way or another. I started drawing and painting at a very young age, and have always had a craft I was doing, whether it was making cards, crocheting, collages, jewelry, painting, drawing, sewing or sculpting. I can't handle not having a creative project. I started making my hand painted necklaces in the end of August, and haven't looked back. :)
Q.) How would you tell someone off the street what it is you do?
A.) I tell them I make hand painted necklaces which are miniature paintings that I have glued onto a pendant and applied a clear coating for protection. I say I also do
dog portraits and other original paintings.
Q.) Is there any one thing you love to create?
A.) I honestly enjoy creating anything and everything but I absolutely LOVE making these hand painted necklaces. They are so beautiful and special and satisfying.
Q.)Where do you draw your inspiration from?
A.)Most of my pieces reflect things in general that make me happy. Nature, animals, fun objects, etc. I make a conscious effort to only make paintings and necklaces of things I would like to have in my house, or around my neck.
Q.)Do you ever want to try something but don't know how? If so what is it?
A.)Oh wow yes! There are so many projects I would absolutely LOVE to do. One of them is metal work. I would love to make my own frames, and sculptures. I also would love to have my own kiln and be able to do ceramics whenever I pleases. I could go on and on about things I would love to do, but those are the 2 main ones.
Thank you Heather please keep an eye on Heather here at these links.
