In my life, I've dabbled in many forms of art. I've always been a creative person and I attribute that to my mother. Growing up when my sisters and I were bored she'd give us an activity that ignited our imaginations. Whether it was making tissue paper flowers or forming animals out of beads, we were ALWAYS making things. I guess that mentality has always just stuck with me. There's just nothing more satisfying than having an idea and then watching as it comes to fruition.
When starting Modest Mud I wanted to combine two mediums I've been most passionate about: paint and clay. My pieces have a minimalistic look and are inspired by planet Earth and all it's inhabitants. They are flawed and unique... just like us.
