Some painting just make me sigh. They pick at things deep in my brain and whisper things to my heart. Once upon a time I would conjure up words like aesthetic experiences and the sublime - art touches my soul in such a spiritual way. It's never just a pretty picture on a wall or more likely, on my computer screen. I take in those pieces of artwork, I see the artist's touch, search for their message, find beauty that makes me want more than what the everyday and ordinary present us.
I get swept away.
I hope in some way, my love of artwork translates into my beads and jewelry. That in some way that euphoria that catches me up in a painting finds its way into inspiring you when you create with my beads.
If these speak to you, you can find them in my Etsy shop.
