...a very good place to start, as the song goes...

This makes it the, what, third blog I have? Something like that? Oh well. Thanks to seekergeek for the invite code! A bit of an intro:

I'm Annie, and I'm an artist, writer, editor and domestic engineer. I have 3 kids (the "mum" part), Christina, Michael and Sarah. Art and writing have been my links to sanity, especially since my older two kids are autistic. I could either laugh or cry about the challenges, but I choose to paint, draw and write instead. My LJ is mostly my writing and fics, while the one I have on Blogger is mostly about daily life. This one on DW is going to focus mostly on my art and the creative process.

I started painting 6 years ago, after my son Michael was born. I was doing it in oils, but now I do mostly acrylic and watercolor. I also do sumi-e (Chinese watercolor) and calligraphy. I draw in pastel (oil and chalk), watercolor pencil, colored pencil, ink, and brush pen. My art studio is my kitchen table. Not a lot of room, but at least I do have a place to set up and paint. And I usually find time late at night, after the kids go to sleep or on the weekends.

People ask me if I sleep at all. I joke, "Not really."

In any case, I'll be putting some of my work up here, and if you're on DW and would like to be friends, let me know!

Cheers,
Annie
