The Inspiration Behind JolieArt
This is my grandma, the source of much of my inspiration. She had a smile that made everyone feel warm and had an infectious laugh that you couldn't help but join in on, even if you had no idea why she was laughing. Her hugs were the absolute best thing in the world. A simple hug said so many things...I love you, I'm proud of you, you're amazing, I'm always on your side...a hug from Grandma always made your heart smile.
Grandma grew up during the Great Depression, so didn't let anything go to waste. She'd cut old shirts, jeans or anything that had outlived its usefulness into pieces to be used for appliqué or patchwork. In her younger days she worked at a factory, where she rescued wax from the garbage. She sculpted that into a bust of my uncle. It was seriously impressive! I just love how Grandma could take something that most people see as rubbish and turn it into something beautiful.
It's those memories and a thousand more like them that inspire me. I want to be like her and create beauty out of the unexpected. And more importantly, I want it to make you feel like Grandma's hugs made me feel.
