Meet my Guest!
Ex's and Oh's was created in 2020 during a rough time in my life. Art was my way of coping. As a child, I took ceramic classes and was hooked on the texture and how the clay felt between my fingers (it was like a soothing mechanism). This was very therapeutic for me- I became addicted to making things, including earrings. I sold all 20 earrings I made on Facebook and couldn't believe people liked my creations. I had my first market in November 2020, and I remember meeting many incredible people- vendors and customers. They were the light. The light I have been searching for. So, thank you for allowing me to create something beautiful with a purpose.
I quit my job in January 2022 to become an artist full-time. Since then, I have hosted markets for other local vendors, like myself, to connect with the art community. In May of 2022, I decided to put aside hosting markets due to having to decide between making art or creating a space for artists. I chose to make art- so here we are! It was the best decision for my family and me. So here's to jumping into the unknown and doing what I love!
