Paige has now had her first ponytail! (There was some wrestling and a tear or two which makes me never want to do another ponytail for her again, but there you go.) My baby is turning into a little girl. I'm happy for her, but....*sigh*
My name is Megan Cassidy Carty. Balancing being an artist, a wife, and a mother of two is hard work; yet the best kind of work.
After a lifetime love of drawing and painting I studied art at Syracuse University's School of Art & Design where I focused on advertising. I went on to work for several years in both boutique design firms and corporate retail settings all while longing for my own artistic voice. Desperate to scratch my own creative itch, I began working for myself creating customized letterpress birth announcements and wedding invitations for lots of wonderful clients. Before too long and after a lot of turbulence my husband Chris and I started our family and I set my career aside so I could focus on my babies and take on the giant task of Mothering.
The aching need to create kept calling to me like the seductive Sirens so I picked up my easy-to-clean-and-carry paints and began making anything that made my heart smile. My whimsical and quirky spirit came to life in my creations and I knew this was what I was meant to be doing.
