Hey Readers and Hopefully future followers- Welcome to our BLOG!
We decided to make a blog for Mirrored Creations so we could share a little bit more about ourselves, our lives, and the passion we pour in to our art. For our first post we thought we'd introduce ourselves and tell you a little about Mirrored Creations, and where we came from!
Our names are Leah and Rachel and we are twenty-something year old twins that do ALOT of art! In all seriousness we have a passion for all things having to do with art, creating, dreaming, and crafting.
Lets start from the beginning, we both discovered this artistic ability at a pretty young age. As we grew our skills developed, and we were fortunate to spend some time with a local artist (and fabulous woman) who encouraged us to be fearless in art. The experiences we had with her, and her passion for art rubbed off on us and we believe truly shaped our future in a way she probably does even realize! Anywho, as we got older art became harder to enjoy. It was just so expensive to buy a canvas and paint for a "for-funzies" project, when in reality we both just felt the urge to paint but didn't really have necessary projects nor wallspace left.
It all changed one week when our friend asked if we'd be interested in painting a mural for her dad. She said she knew we were AMAZING painters (thanks girl) and that we could knock it out of the park and her dad would PAY US to do it. It was shocking to imagine to get paid to do our passion. One star wars garage later and we were hooked!
We now do all sorts of custom artwork for people to display in their homes and businesses. It keeps us VERY busy since we both have full time jobs working for the local school district. We would love to eventually quit our jobs and pursue art as our full time passion and profession!
Yikes, I didn't even cover the "Mirrored" part of Mirrored-Creations! We are actually Mirrored Twins (Leah is left handed and Rachel is right handed) and these are our CREATIONS... so Mirrored Creations it was!
We are going to use this blog to tell you about some of our fun projects we've done in the past and all of our future exciting plans! We will try and give great DIY tips of what, or more commonly what-NOT to do!
Thanks for reading our very first post and visiting our page! We already feel like we're getting to know you all more!
