Two years ago I decided to try my hand at devoting a site to my work and started with a free Wordpress site. I worked on it for a bit and then didn't keep up with the blogging end. It took me starting a personal blog to really think about how to get my art blog up and running again. So, I revamped the Wordpress site and I had my second go. However, after a couple posts I realized it still wasn't what I wanted. Or maybe I was too busy. Either way, there it sat.
Then, I happened upon Weebly and on a spur of the moment, I bought this domain and started completely anew. I guess the third time is the charm! I finally found the perfect way to get my self out there in a way that is easy and flexible. I've had some blogging experience and am now ready to kick this site off. The art gallery and portfolio are a bit scarce, as I'll admit, most of my work has been done to give as gifts or was a small school or personal project and I'm trying to build up a few items before really posting. But a blog post here and there can't hurt!
The world of art and design is one of continual learning, and I'm excited to share my explorations with the world. Here I'll post inspiration, how to's, and more. Because to me, everyone is an artist. You just have to find the right thing to tackle. Creativity comes in all forms and is one of the most important things to society and culture. So please, even if you're not here to purchase anything, enjoy my work and my words. Be inspired by Cobblestone Art &Design.
