Hello all! My name is Kim, from AmongTheRuins (etsy). I am completely new at everything in the wonderful world of art. I have only dabbled occassionally through the years in jewelry making, a little drawing here and there, sewing, crafts. But recently I discovered something called "altered art" and from there I found steampunk, and now I'm flipping crazy for all of it!!! I also have a goal of making money selling my jewelry and altered bottles. It is slow going and every other day I am encouraged, and every other day I'm down in the dumps. But I am not giving up and I figure if I just keep at it and keep learning everything I can, I'll get there someday!!
I've been a musician all my life - I play violin and piano, doing occassional professional gigs, and I play in the local orchestra. I've always wanted to be an artist. My mom, sisters, brother, and daughter are all talented artists. I guess I just wanted to be one too!! So here I am! I opened up shop on Etsy almost a month ago and all I can do now is eat, sleep, and dream jewelry!!! I am very very happy to make your aquaintances!!
The works I've seen so far here are really beautiful. I look forward to getting to know you all and maybe learning some things along the way. I'm just so happy to find this here!
