I am so lucky to have some amazing sponsors and Rachel Burbee from Tatter Beans is no exception. Rachel is a blogger and a fantastic photographer. She has her own Tatter Beans Etsy Shop where she sells some of her beautiful prints like these...
My love for capturing things became an obsession and a passion
I have always had a desire to learn new things , and with so many photography in hand I knew I had to do something with them. The long process of mastering photo shop was sometime a hair pulling experience, but certainly something I'm glad I stuck out.
Finally my green card came through and I began working as an Art Director at our local Boys and Girls club. Part of the job was to teach a photography course. I have a degree in the Arts but photography was never my main subject.. so with very little knowledge and 10 teenagers in tow we set out to enter the Boys and girls club of America's nation photography competition
We won our regional.
It was then that someone said you really need to do something with your work.
This still took another year to happen, but after being forced into a situation where I needed to be at home with my step children, i decided it was time to step out and do what it was everyone was telling me to do.
My days now are mixture of house wife mother and arts... if I'm not doing the washing up or ironing the clothes making bed or washing floors I'm editing photography and making up image boards for my next collection... along with blogging for three blogs... A personal blog, business blog and a team blog
I am also the Captain of The Undiscovered Artist of Etsy Team ... I have an amazing team with some amazing Leaders....
I have far to many ideas running through my head at any giving moment, that I often meet myself somewhere around a corner and have to stop to breath.
The creative side of me really would like to out run the house wife in me.
And sooner or later I'm pretty sure this will happen
My shop is very much a labor of love.
My aim when opening was to create something I would be happy to hang/display in my own home.
My love for vintage will always shine through I honestly cant help myself.
I am at present adding cards to my shop and very soon photography blocks, and some other ideas .... all of which display my work ........ like I said far to many ideas"
