Guest Sketch Artist: Charlotte AKA Suepup!

We have a special S:CY Guest for you this month... a gifted Sketch Artist!

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
Charlotte sent me her bio to share with our readers...

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."

To learn more about their exceptional work for children with brain tumors and their families, you can go HERE. Thank you for checking them out.
