I've loved art ever since I can remember. I love all forms of art - things that I have tried include oil painting, watercolour, calligraphy, acrylic, clay, knitting, crochet, basket-weaving, ebru, carving and beading. I guess that is arts and crafts strictly speaking! I am an amateur at best but this does not stop me from loving and being passionate about it! Even if you're not the best at something, why not try it and if you enjoy it, then why not engage in it? Anything that is worth doing is worth doing badly - meaning even if you're not great at something, doing it to whatever capacity you can is still a worthwhile endeavour.
