Hi everyone! It's been a very long time since I've stopped in on DeviantArt, and if you haven't already noticed, I am no longer running "Cute Storm". There where a lot of things that factored into me stepping away from sewing, and after a sudden illness several years ago I realized I had lost sight of the things that I wanted to persue most, primarily because of the amount of time I invested in my work (between designing new products, drafting patterns, prototypes, batch sewing, scheduling conventions, travel, running the website, filling orders, searching materials...the list never seemed to end, there was always an encyclopedic task list waiting for any spare moment).
That said, I loved getting to meet so many of you at conventions, and I hope you continue to enjoy the fun and fluffy things I've made for you in the past. Your enthusiasm, your passion, your collective embrace helped make it worthwhile.
So what am I doing now? I've taken the time and energy I had been pouring into my sewing and refocused on my true passion of fine art. I've spent the last three years drawing, painting, sculpting and throwing pottery; this Fall I will be unveiling my first major public art installation.
I truly appreciate all of the kindness & support you have all given me over the 12 years I've been on DeviantArt & I hope some of you enjoy my new work as well and follow me on my new journey! I don't intend to make an account to post my new works here, but you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram for updates on my lastest work.
