first blog post

Hi this is Carley here I decided to start blogging for the start-a-blog  challenge. Here’s a little bit about me and my story, I was born in Milwaukee, WI around 28 years ago. I have always had a passion for art, but was afraid to pursue it. After graduating from UWM in December of 2010 with a degree in linguistics I decided to go back to school for art in order to pursue my passion, I did not want to settle and get a job without ever trying. So in Fall of 2011 I enrolled back in UWM for art. I went back to gain skills, not for the degree, and after mastering the basics I came to realize that what I want is to be an artist, not an art student. And so I dropped out in the spring of 2014 and am building up a body of work right now. I have been into writing poetry and fiber art lately. Here is a picture of my latest piece:

  1. Hi Carley, You are I are both doing the challenge, and you stood out as I looked through the list for someone aspiring to blog daily. In some ways it’s much harder, but I think a daily habit is actually easier to develop. Want to be accountability partners? Let me know. I like the image above. I don’t know anything about fiber arts except that I love beautiful patterns, especially on useful things we interact with every day.
