Surfing around the e-commerce site Zibbet, I saw this wonderful interview with Gena. I immediately wanted to introduce you to this creative lady.
I'm only reposting the first portion of the interview, but you will find the link for the entire article at the end of this post.
Her shop, Creations by Gena, has a beautiful selection of all kinds of various art. If you like variety, you should be sure to stop in, because you can find gifts for every one of your friends and family. Gena currently resides in Georgia with her husband and is a proud supporter of the US Military.
1.Tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi Everyone my name is Gena of CreationsbyGena -specializing in glass art, Misc. Folk and collage art, Primitive crafts and More!
I am a Proud Army EOD (Bomb Squad) wife, which my husband is now retired after 22 years of service..yeah and I am also a very PROUD Air Force and Coast Guard mom (if I had more kids, I am sure I would have the other branches covered too…LOL). When I am not supporting my family I am an altered art, mixed media, Folk art artist. As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been creating things. …just ask my parents. In School while growing up, I took many art classes and graduated from a 4 year vocational school for Graphic and Advertising Design. I had planned on having a career in Graphic Arts, but let’s say “things change” and for the best I must say.
I like to work in different mediums and enjoy learning new techniques. I love to paint, and to craft things. “I hate an empty white wall, and think that the best way to defeat blankness is by making affordable art available to everyone.” It brings me great joy to share my love of vibrant, colorful, whimsical art and crafts with others, thus the reason for the many different items you will see my shop.
And here's a special item from Gena's shop that I thought the ACJ team would really appreciate.
Here's the link I promised so you can read the entire interview. Please visit Gena's shop. She has such a variety of items (even sale items) that would make great gifts. http://www.zibbet.com/blog/2011.11.21/featured-zibbeter-creationsbygena
Wishing everyone a very special Thanksgiving.
