Meet Your New Local Artist

artist :: a person who practices any of the various creative arts

my prints

An artist. I would have never put that label on myself even 5 years ago.  But as my love for photography grows, I realize that yes, I am an artist.  It even feels more legit now that I have some of my photos for sale.  Yes, that's right FOR SALE!  I can't believe it!  Another new and exciting opportunity that came my way recently!

A friend of mine creates decoupage pieces and recently started selling them at a local shop.  She asked me if I wanted to put some photos up to sell!  I went through these crazy emotions.  I think it must be an artist thing.  I felt vulnerable selling my stuff.  Like what if it doesn't sell?  I might like what I see but what if other people don't?  It's all rooted in fear but still it was there.  I did overcome it and took the plunge.  Now if you don't live near the Frisco Mercantile, I also have unframed prints for sale in my shop.
