I've been thinking about people who inspire me. There are so many! Artisans of all kinds, writers, poets, photographers, jewelry makers, artists of all genres. Since I started showing my art in the public eye on the internet I have found that the artisan community is very supportive of each other. It has been a very enjoyable experience and I've decided to change my Stacys Art Studio blog just a bit. Every week along with writing about what I may be working on at the time, I would also like to include someone who I find to be inspiring. If they have a store or a web-site or are on a social network, I'll tell you how to find them. Maybe they can inspire you too!
The biggest challenge is that I have such a long list and had to decide who would be my first victim, umm, err I meant artisan that I wanted to feature and decided on C.Corey Fisk who inspires me every day. I met her on google+, she liked my paintings and I followed her posts. She is always upbeat and compassionate toward others even tho she struggles with serious health issues. Then she started to make beautiful jewelry! A few months ago we traded some of our work, she tried to give me too much of her stuff for my stuff so I sent extra stuff to her which she immediately gave to someone she loved who was going thru some difficult things. Then she sent me even more stuff after that! She has a truly generous heart. She makes these beautiful pieces with the assistance of some furry friends who are always at her side and a few very loving people as well. Here is their store on etsy.
I just had to add a picture of one of the pieces I got from her. It's a necklace but I loved it so much and since I don't wear a necklace constantly I turned it into an ankle bracelet so that it never leaves my leg!
This is what I've been working on this week. Or I should say one of the pieces!
