Welcome to My World of Creativity

& My Creative Journey

 

My creative journey began with my grandmother, Grandma McAvoy. She was full of imagination and was always creating something. As the most influential person in my creative life, my grandmother instilled within me the love and desire to create.

Inspired by Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," I have developed my own unique style of collage. I create these collages by overlaying cattlemarker or watercolor painted paper or recycle paintings, cut them into pieces, and then assemble them into layered images, adding a variety of materials to adorn each image. Each brightly-colored whimsical image tells its own story and is often a reflection of my own personal struggles & triumphs. You may find wild game bird feathers, grasses, wheat, pressed flowers, leaves, porcupine quills, horse hair, deer hair, coffee, tea, dirt, or other materials in my collages. While I create an image, I believe I am creating it for a home and I pray a blessing over it. My hope is that each image finds its home and that it speaks a message of hope and encouragement to the viewer as it has spoken to me.

I continue to draw inspiration from other artists, my daily journey, the beauty of God’s creation, my faith and belief in the Word of God, and experiences/travels shared with my husband, children, grandchildren, extended family and friends. I love to take photos and I attempt to use my own reference photos to draw inspiration for creating my images. My art has received several awards and I donate my art to local nonprofits to benefit families with cancer and disabilities. I received a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design from Montana State University and reside in Bozeman, Montana, with my husband and family nearby. 

May the touch of my grandmother’s life also touch you. May you find freedom and peace in your soul, love in your heart, and an inspiration to discover your own creative world.
