I met my husband Brian when I was 17. By the time I was 19 we were engaged, and by 20 we were married. He's the extrovert to my introvert. An amazing husband, best friend, and father. Together we have pushed our own limits and each other's. Mostly in good ways. From three dogs to three kids to living car-free to two cross country trips and now living full-time RV style. It's a real sap of a story, but what a journey it has been. And it's not over yet!
We have always wanted to do something creative together (other than having three kids LOL!). Finally, after 13 years of marriage we figured out what to do...make jewelry. We are excited to share just the beginning of our jewelry making journey. It is inspired from our love of adventure and nature. It is imperfectly perfect just like us, and we hope you love it as much as we do.
Check out what we have available so far. More jewelry, and of course more art, coming soon!
A few weeks ago I did a little time lapse video of one of my paintings. It was fun to do and I also did part of it on Instagram Live, so be sure to follow me over there @megangrayarts so you can keep up with the creative madness. Check it out and let me know what you think and if you would like me to do more of these.
I will never master anything. Not art, not parenting, not a damn thing. Life would become boring if mastery were my only goal, and what I attained. I think many put mastery and success together. That's not where success lives. It lives in love, honesty, and the process. It lives in exploration and experimentation.
Recently I have been enjoying the process of creating with charcoals. A medium so simple and natural that you can find it after a campfire has burned out. No need for fancy supplies, just somehting that nature has been giving us since the dawn of the first fire. I have never been fond of drawing, but I think I have finally found a way to fall in love with it. Charcoals don't always have to be so precise and they can be as messy as I would like them to be. I like to be messy. It makes me feel that work is getting done.
I'm excited for 2017 and for all that I will create this year. Especially with what comes from working with charcoals more. I'm finding a rythym while enjoying the process along the way. It's going to be a good year.
Mother of paintings & children. Both bring a connection to something bigger than myself along with a feeling of I don't know what the hell I'm doing!
