Challenging Yourself to Become a Better Artist
Like others here, I get asked a lot of questions about my art, my process, techniques, and my inspiration. One of the questions I get asked that makes me both smile and laugh is, "How did you get so good?" Half the time it's a rhetorical question, and the other half is people genuinely wanting to know how to get better at art.
The answer is deceptively simple: I challenge myself and maintain a positive attitude.
RISE TO THE CHALLENGE
Now you might say, "Well, everything I do is a challenge, I'm not that good yet." But that's not what I mean. Of course getting better at art is challenging, and even when you're what others might consider a master, art never stops being a challenge.
But what I'm talking about is specifically setting goals for yourself and taking on projects that you KNOW are going to make you struggle. The projects that you KNOW are going to make you want to give up and do something else.
I find that a lot of people sort of stick to a specific niche and never reall

Things that inspire me and that I just find awesome.

10 years on DA, and more.

I just noticed that I have been on DA for 10 years. Time flies by and it has been fun and interesting. Thank you to all new and old alike. All of your comments mean a lot to me. I haven't been as active here as I would have liked to have been, but life gets busy and time moves on.

I plan on sticking around as long as possible and being more active.  I've been starting to produce more new pieces. I have 7 new car rings 100% completed and they will be posted in just a day or so, as well as some other new pieces that I recent;y completed.


Life has been changing again, and it has been inspiring me to do other things. I will be getting back into some woodworking this summer, and maybe some other mediums.


Keep an eye out for fun new pieces.

Hello! I am an independent silver and gold smith, and woodworker living in Western Washington.

I started doing lost wax work in high school when I was 16, I left high school early and obtained a degree from the Northwest College of Goldsmithing, working for an amazing company by age 18. After working for companies for many years I have branched off to focus on my own personal creations.

As of 2017 this is my 40th year as a jeweler! It has been an amazing journey filled with wonderful memories and friends made.

I don't have a personal facebook page as I keep my private life private, but I love to share the works that I create.

Thank you to all who view, share, comment, favorite, and or purchase my work. It all adds to my inspiration.
