My name is Tessa McSorley, and I am an artist and crafter working under the name How to Make Art.  I work for myself full-time, and besides selling art, I also sell antiques and collectibles.  I live with my dog, Ruby Roo, in Florida, and I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, and watching artsy movies.

What are you creatively addicted to? When did you start?

I am creatively addicted to screen printing, drawing, and painting.  I have always drawn and painted, but I got introduced to screen printing in high school and have been obsessed with it ever since.  I even got my college degree in Printmaking so that I could explore screen printing even further!  Even years later, I am still discovering new things about the process.

What’s your inspiration?

I create because I don’t feel like myself if I don’t get to do at least one creative thing a day.  I love making things, and creativity is second nature to me.  I don’t know what I’d do without a creative outlet – making art keeps me sane!

Where can people find your work?

My website is TessaMcSorley.com, and my blog is at HowToMakeArt.com.  I have an etsy shop here: HowtoUseArt.esty.com.

Name one thing you would like people to know about you.

I love sending my work out into the world and knowing that people enjoy the images I make! 🙂
