One of my favorite things about being an artist, and drawing in particular is how often I use my hands to make things. Whether it is picking up a brush, wacom pen, or piece of sand paper, I enjoy creating with my hands.
My hand-made sketchbooks are an extension of my drawing. I draw compulsively, and when i get sick of it, i have to find something else to occupy my time. I used to pick at my fingernails until they looked disgusting, so i decided to start making things by hand.
I am fascinated by designer chairs, and prefab designer homes at the moment. I want to try my hands at creating a chair, and I will post more on that when I have something I won't be ashamed of.
Nancy Stahl is not only an amazing artist, but she does some amazing knit work.
