I met a lovely lady this week on Etsy who does the most incredible wall art. I think I'm going to own a few of these lovely "ladies" before too long. But besides being drawn to her wonderful designs, I was inspired and in awe of her story. I can't tell the story as well as she can, so I'm going to quote her....
" I began the "Wall Dancers" in February 2003. After 15 years of being a Senior Designer, I lost my "passion" for my art. Just when I said "No Mas!" and "I knew' where my life was going (silly me!) - Our Higher Power decided to display a sense of humor and I've been 'along for the ride' ever since! I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in February 2002 that kept me literally bed-bound. It's been a 6-year tough battle but my ‘choice’ was not to take the victim role. The first dolls were actually made in bed with me in my jammies! I was told by all of my doctors that "these were impossible to do" and still to this day they still wonder 'how I do it.' ~smiling~ You just have met the "Rainman-Of-ETSY!"
Defying the odds, and making the most of her blessings, Keri has put so much personality into her wall dancers that you want to smile everytime you see one. She's a true artist, with all the talent and passion that makes what she creates a labor of love. Check her out. You'll fall in love with her "ladies"!
Your Friendship is Timeless
