You found me! I am Jo Deb. Surface things about me........ I am a wife of a million years. I am a mom of two grown people. I am a dog lover.....I am the dog mom to two of them, wish I could have them all!!! I am an advocate for abused and neglected children, representing them in court. This is a difficult job, but also very rewarding to be able to see the change one person can make in a child's life. I have lived in the Northeast of the U.S. my whole life, the last 24 in New Hampshire. I love to travel with my family, spend time with my family, have meals with my family.... I love being with my family.
Now, the "not so surface things". I am a creator. I love to let myself get lost into making things. It is my zen. My therapy. Over the last few years, I have really learned a lot about myself. I feel things deeply. All of the things. All the colors, words, music, film, touches. All deeply. I am so happy to have really put this into focus for myself. It allows me to be free in this part of me. Accept this is who I am. I am so grateful to be able to use these thoughts and feelings to make art. They are there in all of my pieces. How cool is that?
I have done various forms of creating over the years. I spent lots of time painting murals for children's rooms, I will share some pictures. I have loved making cigar box purses using acrylic paints. I love the texture of paper and have made cards, gift tags, wrapping paper, gift bags..... all as gifts for friends and family. I have played with wood crafts.
Currently, I am focused on creating watercolor art. I am obsessed with the flow of pigment and water weaving together to make beautiful things. It is magical. I love the look of watercolor art, the blending, the softness, the watermarks....... Did I mention the water? I am a Pisces, I am all about water. It is peaceful and soothing to my soul.
Thank you for finding me. I am so happy you are here.
