Olive My Heart, a purveyor of gourmet olive oils, aged balsamic vinegars, and spices, is excited to host local artist Sheila Wy during the August 11 Art Hop.
Sheila is best known for her work with Alcohol Ink and Creative Cardmaking. Much of her Alcohol Ink paintings are created by “straw blowing” ink, while at other times they are actually created by lighting the inks on fire!
She says that working with alcohol inks in this manner is like the “box of chocolate” saying in the movie Forest Gump ; “you never know what you’re going to get.” She states that, “Sometimes the most beautiful things appear from nothing at all!”
This theme of “creating something from nothing” has been her inspiration behind all of her artistic endeavors. Sheila is currently working on an online project called MooGoo Melange where she will feature tutorials that will include alcohol ink, creative cardmaking, paper crafting, and mixed media art projects from beginner through advanced.
Sheila offers classes locally in alcohol ink and creative cardmaking that uses a process that simplifies many techniques making it possible for anyone, regardless of skill level or age, to achieve professional results.
Be sure to ask Sheila about classes in alcohol ink and creative cardmaking during the Art Hop, or find her on Facebook and Instagram at @MooGooMelange.
Olive My Heart is located at 5108 Darrow Rd. Hudson, OH 44236.
