Instagram March Challenge: Getting To Know The Artist


Designer Joanne Hawker put out an Instagram challenge to all makers. With as many photos as you see of the challenge, a lot of makers got excited about it. I know I did.

I’ve had my life turned upside down with a new baby so things slip my mind or I run out of day. I was a little behind but I still completed the challenge. This challenge lets fans get to know the makers and makers get to know each other as well. I know I love meeting other artists, especially knowing the behind the scenes of the art.

Joanne put out the first challenge last year and I missed it. By the way thanks Joanne! I realized that even with a bio and a cv it’s so impersonal and not really saying much about the artist. That’s why I chose to share it on my other social media and write this post.

I started late and caught up. Not too hard, still fun watching people under the #marchmeetthemaker hashtag.

I will give a few details on the photos chosen. I’ll keep it short, I promise.

Day one: (You) Yes me, that’s the best selfie I can do these days.

Day two: (Favorite to Make) I don’t have a favorite. See the other photos.

Day three: (Workspace) That’s my home art studio.

Day four: (Tools) Number one tool, always have the camera on hand.

Day five: (Boomerang) That’s my little prince’s feet.

Day six: (Raw Materials) That’s what I’m using for my next project.

Day seven: (How it’s Made) One of my pieces. See the other photos.

Day eight: (Where) Houston, Texas and we do have the best skyline!

Day nine: (Work in Progress) A piece I have cast to the side due to lack of time.

Day ten: (Recommend a Maker) I have several that I admire.

Day eleven: (Post/Mail) From an exhibit I was in that I had to mail my entries to.

Day twelve: (Brand Image) My art is my brand and image.

Day thirteen: (Photography) My first love and I incorporate it into my art.

Day fourteen: (Creative Friends) The bestie, singer, model and make up guru.

Day fifteen: (Work Clothes) I use anything but when I remember I use this shirt.

Day sixteen: (Time to Relax) After a day with baby out & about, pizza & blogging it is.

Day seventeen: (Feedback) The best feedback was from the Genocide exhibit I participated at the Holocaust Museum of Houston. More here.


Day 18: (Hyperlapse) New to video but I enjoyed recording my first layer of texture.

Day 19: (Helper) My new baby, he’s my helper because he motivates & inspires me to be a good mother and continue to develop as an artist.

Day 20: (Sketchbook) I have several but these are my favorites.

Day 21: (Inspiration) My past, my travels and my what’s happening in my life.

Day 22: (Close Up) This is close up of a forgotten textured piece.

Day 23: (Recent Make) This is one of the different variations of one of my pieces of my Fragments Series.

Day 24: (Milestone) Some of my work was just published in the Indie Soleil Magazine. To me that is a milestone.

Day 25: (Packaging) I haven’t packaged anything ia while, but I have this package.

Day 26: (Why I do this) THis is my passion and I finally decided to follow my dream. I only wish I would have done it sooner.

Day 27: (Goals) I love my country and would love to exhibit in Guatemala.

Day 28: (Organized) I work off of lists and I need planners & portfolios to stay organized.

Day 29: (Can’t live without) My biggest fan (hubby) and my little baby.

Day 30: (Top Tip) Life is too short not to follow your dreams.

Day 31: (Customers) I love when my customers send me photos of my work in their homes.

If you are participated in the #March Meet The Maker challenge, let me know. Follow me on Instagram so I can see your behind the scenes.

I enjoyed this challenge because it got me back in the studio. Now I’m going to be working my way through the 100dayproject.
