I’ve been creating art all of my life and I can’t imagine existing on this planet without it.  Sometimes the biggest challenge, when we want to be creative or learn a new skill, is knowing where to start.

Listen to the heart of the matter – it changes lives!

Creating is my lifeline

I’ve been creating art all of my life and I can’t imagine existing on this planet without it.  Sometimes the biggest challenge, when we want to be creative or learn a new skill, is knowing where to start.

28 years of Experience

Before the internet existed, I purchased a gazillion books and spend a lot of time watching arts + crafts shows on TV. 

I live for learning and creating to seeing the finished result!

And I want to share that with you

So I created the Coloring Creatives, the Pyrography Academy, and the Crochet Academy to help it make it easy for you.

Some of my favourites

Hi, I’m Petra!

Introverted Rebel, Artist, Author, Goal Mindset Mentor, Doer of things, and a mom to 3 boys – one with some extra needs that have forever changed my life.

My Art is:

  • Handmade by me in my home studio in Central Virginia – the Blue Ridge Mountains are my backyard.
  • I love creating custom commissions for people whether it’s a blanket, a piece of jewelry, or a wood-burning.
  • Sometimes I get help from my partner when it comes to the big power tools.
  • I don’t use machines other than my wood-burning pen jewelry tools or crochet hook to create my art.
  • I am self-taught in all of the art that I do by watching videos and practicing.
  • I find inspiration all around me at music shows, out on the trail while on a run and in my journals.
