Hello…. My name is Amy Joanne Mogish…..I am Creative ~a Maker ~ an Artist.
Recently on Facebook and thru a few Workshops at our local Art Center there has been puzzled faces and questions asked ~ exactly what is it that you do and offer?
I feel like ‘Lucy’ needs to explain herself to ‘Ricky’.
Let me explain…..
I am a Decorative Artist, if I had to put a label on it…. …more of a creative soul who loves to share creativity with Friends and Community using the skills I have learned over the past 30 years thru Decorative Art.
I design for the Decorative Arts ~ by written patterns published thru myself, national magazines or print books, for all folks to create!
I offer instructional Workshops, Gatherings, Classes and Seminars using the patterns I create in acrylics, colored pencil and Classic Chalk Art style ~ sharing what I have learned.
I hand paint furniture and offer Workshops at Tink’s Antiques in Tamaqua Pa with Sweet Pickin’s Milk Paint.
I post on my Blog, Facebook and Instagram about all things creative, my love for vintage and share my home ideas and style.
The mediums I create with are DecoArt acrylics, Prismacolor colored pencils, and Sweet Pickin’s Milk Paint, along with Miss Mustard Seed.
The designs I create are in Acrylic, Colored Pencil and Classic Chalk Art.
…..What is Classic Chalk Art you ask?
It is a style~ more-so than a medium, that I created for the Tamaqua Community Arts Center. All my Classic Chalk Art patterns are created with an acrylic background, the design is colored pencil and finished with pastel. The background of the chalkboard shows thru as part of the design and when the pencil hits the wood, it is grainy like chalk……hence ‘Classic Chalk Art’!
I love to work with other Artists, my Community and Local Businesses….supporting each other is what makes our world go round and comes back ’10’ fold….a dozen times more.
…and soon I hope to roll out a Rubber Stamp Line! This is a huge undertaking and am a ‘little chicken’ to take the plunge…..maybe the the sky is going to fall!
“and he puzzled and puzzled until his puzzler was sore”….DR Suess
So if you’re curious… ask….I love sharing my world of creativity! The more the merrier!
Thank you all from the bottom of my ‘chicken little’ heart for being curious enough to ask and fearless enough to try something new and crazy enough to join the Artful Life!
coming soon….Playing Favorites, Sweet Easter Bunnies Pattern, Halloween Ornie Club, Birds of a Feather……
