Welcome to The Artistic Dabbler.
Over the years I’ve created a number of art pieces for both my own personal enjoyment and for others who requested illustrations for their own individual projects. Exploration of ideas was always fun and exciting for me.
My Own Artistic Dabbling
As a kid, I loved art class in school. My first experiences were with finger painting. You gotta love getting messy in class! You get multiple sensory experiences at one sitting – visual, tactile, even olfactory, depending on what substance you’re painting with – potato prints, etc.
One of my teachers took us outside for our art classes to view the bark of trees up close to draw the various textures from life – my first still life classes, so to speak!
Why I want to share this information with others
These early mentors instilled a love of creating and exploring that lasted a lifetime. There were many Eureka! moments that others have given me. What some thought of as “every day” I thought of as “exotic”. By showing others some of my explorations, I hope they might find inspiration to really explore their creative side.
The goal of The Creative Dabbler
What I hope to do with this website is to explore ways that I created various art pieces and show some helpful hints and tricks I’ve developed over the years. And perhaps followers of this site will get inspired to explore their own creativity, or even share their own ideas!
Many of us would like to explore our creativity as a means of enjoying life and others may want to garner ideas to make some income from their creative ideas. As we progress in life, having a fulfilling hobby or career can make all our daily tribulations seem worthwhile.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
The Artistic Dabbler
