DancingGirlArt Has An Experience
In talking about strange things happening when working DancingGirlArt had an interesting experience.She has two shops on Etsy as well as her own website and blog.You can find this information and more of her outstanding work (in addition to that in the video) at this shop:
Here is her story in her own words:
I was in the city and searching for a post box to mail my severance letter to my (now) former employer. Found one, mailed the letter - bye-bye day job - and, whilst thinking 'omg what have I done', wandered round the corner and into an interesting looking art gallery and gift shop.
I asked if they were interested in taking new work, they said yes but it's juried and gave me an application form. I gave them a business card and left.
When I got home, waiting for me in my inbox was an email saying never mind the application we'd like to represent you. Apparently they'd visited my etsy shop and liked what they saw!
Sorry for the long tale, but it really reconfirmed my belief in the universe providing! :)
Indeed she has had many accomplishments.She says"I've been creating things for as long as I can remember. I think I first really got the art bug when my reception-class painting of a mermaid sunning herself on a rock in the ocean got put up in the school corridor for all to see. I was five and that was it for me!
I am pretty much completely self-taught. Nine less than useful months at art school as a teenager ensured I quit drawing and painting for the next thirty years and only took it up again quite recently. In the interim I became a potter, jewelery designer and maker, dressmaker and quilter. Just couldn't stop fiddling with things!
My work can be found in private collections in the UK, Ireland, Europe, USA and Canada. It has been exhibited in the UK and the US."
Great accomplishments.The recognition is well deserved.Thank you for your inspiring story..
