Welcome! I'm so glad you're here.

Aspiring Artistry is a place to explore the beauty (seen and unseen) found in everyday life ... whether it be something tangible like a beautifully designed garden, or intangible, like the joy found in a typical interaction with a child.

I am:

A wife and mother of young twins. A jack of many trades: I can sew, design, write, photograph, create, cook, grow. And I throw a mean ashtray on the pottery wheel.

I worship at the alter of beautiful paper and books, yet I love to read and play on my various and assorted devices. I am a recovering serial-redecorator, but am taking my time with our new home - I plan to be here for quite a while.

Thank you for visiting ... enjoy!
