Artist Statement

I find inspiration in nature, see beauty in imperfections, and feel possibility like electricity in the air. Everything has a story to tell, and I'm listening closely.

Artist Bio

"Writer, artist, and all-round creative type who's slowly letting go of her perfectionistic ways and learning just how messy and beautiful life can be."  

An accountant by training, a business woman for over 20 years, but an artist at heart.  Suddenly and unexpectedly life took a major left turn and I found myself with a chance to start over.  I have no regrets...I am grateful for the life I've lived and the new path that lies ahead.  Learning to embrace the unknown has been a journey in itself, one that I am thankful for having taken.  

My heart lies with the artistry of words...it has since I was a very little girl.  For those interested, I share my short works online at 500WordsAndCounting.wordpress.com.  But I also need to pay my bills and so the website you'll find listed here at the Maryland Arts Counsil in connection with my profile is that of my etsy shop -- HempstockStudios.etsy.com -- where I explore my other forms of creativity.  I hope you enjoy them both.
