Hello art fans, collectors, and general followers!
My name is Liz. I'm The Pop Art Girl.
I'm, currently, 37 years old. I am part of the LGBTQ+ community. I believe in inclusive feminism. I am married. I have two kids who I am homeschooling during the pandemic. I have three rescue dogs and a rescue cat. Painting and Animals are my biggest passions. My hobbies include puzzles, scrabble, and reading science articles online.
I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. I've been selling art off and on since 2009. I was really into the Nashville art scene for a few years. I became frustrated with the way artists competed for space. So I created Furies Magazine as a place for artists to support each other. Furies turned into a community of awesome people, many of whom I still keep in touch with today.
I missed painting, though, and Furies was a fulltime gig--whether or not I got paid. So I hung up my editor hat and started painting again. This time getting involved in the Murfreesboro Art Scene. It's a smaller community with fewer gatekeepers and gatekeeper wanna-be's.
The problem with being an artist is that you're basically required to do art shows and exhibits on a pretty regular basis. That's how artists make their money and gather a following. I couldn't keep up. I was exhausted all the time. I ended every exhibit with a migraine.
That's why I'm so grateful for social media and you.
While I was off on my hiatus from selling art last summer I had a few adventures. I drove out to the desert, started roller skating and skateboarding, and received an Austism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. (Without getting too much into it, I'll just say that my diagnosis was a huge relief and explains so much about why I did not thrive in the art crawl scene.)
I'm not up to selling paintings again just yet, but there are a few cute things in my shop. I hope you'll check them out. Stickers ship straight from my studio. Tees and other things ship from Printful.
I'll have more to post soon!
