In the month of July, we're featuring THREE Sketches from the talented Charlotte, whom I am sure you are all familiar with, having seen her beautiful sketches and artwork around the web!
|Charlotte AKA Suepup |
our S:CY July Guest Sketch Artist
I am Charlotte, AKA Suepup in the virtal world. I live in central Ohio, born and raised in the heart of an Appalachian coal mining town. I live with my husband, a Doberman Pincher, a Rottweiler and a Pharoah hound/Doberman mix. I am addicted to art and crafting! My current loves are scrapbooking, mixed media, photography and printmaking.
I guess my creative journey began as a young child, when I began oil painting, drawing with pastels and beading. As a child, and still do, love anything that is rusted, weathered and distressed. I find beauty in things most people find ugly or consider junk. I am fairly new to scrapbooking and had been very reluctant to try the "art". For many years, I thought scrapbooking was only a craft, and not art. I now laugh at that thought, I was so wrong. A couple years ago, one of my friends dared me to just scrap one page. Well I did, and now I addicted. I find scrapbooking is a way to create smaller pieces of mixed media artwork! I love Distressed, Steampunk, Shabby Chic and Grunge style scrapbooking. I consider myself an artist rather than a crafter.
While she's here with us, Charlotte would like to bring our attention to a cause near and dear to her heart: the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. "The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating childhood brain tumors and providing support to families."
