I guess this is the section where I talk about myself. Which I find really hard and uncomfortable to do, but here it goes... My name is Becki Kremer (pronounced CRAY-MER!) and I live in the stunning state of Wisconsin, in the colorful city of Madison. I was born in Milwaukee, raised in the northern suburbs of the city, and relocated myself to the center of the state at the age of 19. Went to school at Mid-State Tech in Stevens Point, not knowing what I wanted to do with my life.
I knew for sure that I always held a passion for art with me wherever I went. It kept me sane and balanced when the rest of my life was twirling about. Recently, as in the last year, I have began painting, and found it to be the one thing I love the most in life.
I am married to the most supportive person I know, Andy Kremer, without him in my life, I wouldn't be who I am today, and where I am. When we are not busy with blogs and day jobs, we love to travel. Traveling has been a huge inspiration for my work. Traveling takes me closer to the ocean, the one place where my batteries can fully recharge with a crash of one wave.
After taking numerous trips to the ocean, especially to the Caribbean, I came back home wanting to express what those trips had done to me. I started painting. First with acrylic on canvas, and now I have been dabbling into watercolor on paper and canvas. After more and more paintings had been done, it pushed me to start my own Etsy page to begin selling my art to the public. Once I felt more comfortable with Etsy, I began StellarFish Paintings website, which brings us to the here and now. Etsy is a wonderful website for selling, but I felt I would never be able to connect with those interested in my art. I wanted a place where I could tell my story, feelings and thoughts on a certain piece of art I had or am doing. So come along with me on this journey, I promise you that it will all be worth it and very exciting! With that I leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
"My mother said to me, 'if you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso." Pablo Picasso
