As a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, I have strived for the past twenty years to place my passion for art in the fore of my sustainability. This has proven to be no easy task. Not that I have wasted the years, but that my skills in the trades with historical restorations of interior surfaces commanded my attention. This is a good thing. Another great distraction from my studio has been the raising of and involvement with my son. He’s nine now. Far more independent and observant, as well. He is no longer my distraction but rather my catalyst. He knows of my desires to work in my studio and I do not want to feed him my endless list of reasons for not getting in there. It is by example that he will grow to feel he is free to pursue his dreams. I must llive by my own parental desires. I have hit my mid-forties, wrestled with physical illness and feel ready to dictate my involvment in the arts rather than be dictated by a business I never intended to upstart.
This blog, my etsy site:http://www.etsy.com/shop/darcytozier, and renovations of my barn studio are the beginnings of my new venture.
