I’m a big kid now!

Guys, I am finally a real, fancy, adult-like, functional artist!

Well, mostly functional anyway. But not only do I have a shiny new credit card but I have my portfolio up and mostly running. on my own dot.com! I feel so cool and professional! It doesn’t have near as much of my work up as I would like, mostly because I only have a cellphone camera and not a one photographer friend near me so most of my photos are crap, but I have some and am working on getting more. It’s also inspired me to kick my butt into gear on several projects I’m working on right now, which is super and a bit needed cause winter makes me want to hibernate and not move till spring, a fact that is very unhelpful for creative productivity.

So, just to keep me honest, my projects are:

  • Shadow fold pillow and/or wall piece
  • Sun dress
  • Gown
  • Photoing my glass to upload to my site.

As you can see, most of my projects are fabric based. If you’re looking for glass projects I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait a little bit because the studio near me is fusing only and also a good hour and 20min away, which is a bit of a distance. And while I love fusing, I prefer to make components, such as pattern bars, and add those in my work, but thats not possible without a tile saw to cut up the bars. So, for now, that’s on the back burner. And as for flame working and such at my buddies studio, they’ve hit a small development hiccup and are a couple weeks behind their opening schedule, so they won’t have things set up while I’m in the area. Next time though.

If you’re interested in checking out my work, head over to SamanthaMcBride.com and check out my portfolio. I’m still updating it though so some links won’t have much or might just be the prewritten babble from the site. Thanks!

So that’s my little update. Sorry for all the text but here’s a photo of a beefeater raven to change things up:
