Catch up...

New month and I'm determined to stay on track with my blog ring this time around.  So without further adieu here are the beautiful and talented artists of January 2010. For the first artist of January we highlighted Speranza Jewelry, which you can read about here. Our second artist should have been Libby of raven333 and I was such a slacker... so please read on for a review of her fantastic fiber arts.

Libby is an artist I personally can identify with as she too battles depression and the roller coaster of trying to find a good balance in medication. I give her major props for continuing to do what she loves and also sharing with us during her difficult times. January 26th she posted an article title One World One Heart Blog and Give Away should you be interested in obtaining one of her fantastic green felt scarves I highly reccomend heading over there and participating. In looking at her works I saw a wonderful variation of abilities, her felt work is key and many of her pieces contain her own fiber work but she is also an accomplished beader and then of course there is my favorite of her pieces, Celtic Dragon Art Doll. I love dragons, celtic work and this little guy is just fantastic! He is a sold piece and I have not seen anything else like him listed, perhaps one day a comission will be arranged and I too can have a beautiful dragon as well. Apart from her crafting she also has 25 years with the Center for Disease Control as a microbiologist and currently pursues a Graphic Arts degree! Go Libby! Can't wait to hear who your winner is and see what the rest of the year brings for you! Below is the afore mentioned dragon as well as a few examples of Libby's varied creations.
