Corner View- Artist?

Today's Corner View theme is "Artist?" I don't know that anyone would truly consider me an artist...but over my life I have pursued many artistic endeavors. In the past (and sometimes now) I have sketched, painted, done woodworking, but the thing that I really love putting my energy into these days is the fiber arts. I love to dye, spin, knit, crochet and felt anything that will lend itself to any or all of the above activities.


While I don't consider myself a photographer by ANY stretch of the imagination, I do like taking pictures, and try and make them as "artistic" as possible.


I have enjoyed exercising my "artistic" muscle this year by designing my shawl a month series, "12 Shawls in 2012", and I also have flexed that muscle when styling and shooting the pictures for the series. It has been a lot of fun!
