Folk Artist M Shaw
I am ensconced at 610 after a year of gutting, rebuilding and fine tuning her, more to do, however in the mean time i am ready to turn my hand to various streams of income to support us both (610 & I) during this current chapter of life. These include but not limited to consulting, classes/workshops focused on mindfully making art from found and salvaged materials. And then there are patterns i design and hand draw for rug hooking/ rug punch, needle punch and applique. Folk art I continue to make in various mediums and will sell on line and at M Shaw fOlk aRt venues and shows here at 610. I also continue to assist elders and am looking for clients to bless me. As always you are my most promising net working conduit. Please Share me

I happily work / explore in a variety of mediums. I have been told I should focus, however I am just one of those people who have a need to "do it" a different way. I love to learn and exploring provides a stimulating ride. I work in a spontaneous manner, I call it flying by the seat of my pants. If I were held to perform in only one medium my light would dim and smolder. I've been told "you are so talented, lucky". I don't know about that I just know creativity is necessary for me. More necessary then riches and security.
This site will provide an opportunity to see what I do and maybe support my need to "make do with found materials" and create. I trust you to share my site with others, net working is still the best connection.
I am working days with elder clients, www.MindfulLivingElderCare.com and making stuff in between. Keep me in mind if you live locally. I am on the look out for elder clients to embrace.
