An Artist

I had a discussion the other day on the definition of an artist and what art is.  It was enlightening and interesting and has made me think more about those definitions.  I am blessed to live in a community with what I consider to be many accomplished artisans.  They are all creating in different ways and all living creative lives.   Some of them are a little out there for my taste or even a little too mainstream, but they are all artist in their own right.  They are blazing their own trails and coexisting with the rest of us creatively.

Through this conversation and contemplating the subject, I was reminded of the poem/poster that I have seen “How to Be An Artist.”  It’s something we all are in our own creative ways!


About Mountain Light Jewelry

My name is Carly Burke and I am a jewelry artist living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA. I turned my hobby into a business September 2009 and have enjoyed using mostly copper and argentium silver wire and semi precious stones to create unique wearable art. I have also appreciated the challenge of jewelry photography, marketing, selling and learning to be a salesman.
