Meet Etsy Jewelry and Clay Artist: TheArtisticTouch

The talent behind TheArtisticTouch may have a full time job, but her art is her true passion. Her mother claims the first steps she took were for a pencil - and she's been creating ever since. In fact she's afflicted with what she calls "Craft/Art ADD." She thrives on learning new mediums and eagerly delves into what ever strikes her fancy. "I love animals and specialized in pet portraits for years," she says. Recently she got up the "nerve" to try graphite portraits of people and was quite successful just by word of mouth. Her latest endeavor is polymer clay. Ideally she's love to be able to support herself through her art instead of doing it on the side. She'd like to remind her fellow Etsians that "if you have a question, this community is the best place in which to try to find answers. Everyone has taught me so much with their wisdom and nobody knows better than someone who has experienced it already. I really like the 'pay it forward' mentality, and I do hope I am able to help a fellow Etsian in the future with my knowledge I learn over time." Please check out her shop:
