icki has always been involved deeply in the creative arts is always focused on sharing her journey to art and how life events can shape us through creativity. She confirms to be a studio person by nature and finds more pleasure in figuring out all the ins and outs of a subject long before she experiments with it. Serious life changes back in 2002 pushed her to learn how to paint and instead of experimenting with watercolours, she studied the chemical formulas and what made some pigments play nice together and that some made mud.
After a lot of work her conclusion was that she hadn’t really crossed over to the dark side of crafting and she thought she could start art journaling as a means of technique experimentation for implementation in her ‘real’ art pieces. She spends hours making journals and she has to choose her materials very correctly otherwise she would not get the right product. She prides in being able to see books she has made earlier while experimenting using different watercolours.
She is into many aspects of art from professional soft crafts publications (knitting/crochet/needlework) to French Hand-sewing, stencilling to macramé, oil painting to encaustics. Whatever your leaning could be, she believes in the healing power of creating. The desire to grow and create is what has driven her into doing what she does now. Join the club and start crafting.
