Hello and Happy Halloween! In honor of Halloween today we are featuring Ren Adams of Plastic Pumpkin Designs. You can visit her shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5052970.
Ren is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico (USA). She offers fun, philosophical, and intriguing artwork and crafts--for the discerning (and playful) collector. She works in a variety of mediums: mixed media assemblages, pencil, marker, acrylic, Chinese brush painting, watercolor, oil pastel, pen & ink, etc. She finds something special and engaging about each artistic method and takes every medium seriously.
This is what Ren has to say about herself;
"I've been doing artwork my entireLong life (even scribbled in my own baby book) and for me, it's more than a "hobby" or "job" it's a state of mind and a fulfilling pathway. I can't NOT do it. I simply must. If I'm not drawing, painting, or otherwise expressing myself (however badly), I'm not in harmony with everything around me.Art is a sensation, a sense of humor, a sense of elation, a tantalizing window... it's pure energy, pure thought, and pure darkness, and pure light.I explore themes, people, and places that intrigue me...I'm also a Taoist and a lot of my artwork reflects my spiritual pathway (the art of compassion, simplicity, and patience). I practice Qi Gong meditation and enjoy artists who aren't afraid to be themselves."
The piece above is called "Plum Blossoms" and is apart of Ren's "Etsy Pink" collection. Ren is doing something so neat! If you purchase a piece from her "Etsy Pink" collection 50% goes to Susan G. Komen Foundation! Isn't that wonderful?!
