Meet the Maker
"I love that there are so many different things you can do, and so many different ways to express yourself. Resin is extremely fluid, and while it can be very fickle at times, when you get it just right you feel so rewarded."
What do you love most about this art form?
What really drew me to resin was the freedom of expression. No two things are ever going to be the same and you can create based on how you’re feeling or what you find in your surroundings.
Favorite Social Media
What are your social media handles?
IG: @baywitchblooming TikTok: @baywitchblooming Youtube: Bay Witch Blooming
What do you think made you take the leap to sell your artwork?
I am disabled and could no longer work in the "traditional" workforce, so I decided to start my own business! I started with crystal jewelry and really harnessed my creative energy when I moved into resin.
Favorite thing to make?
My Custom Birth Chart Books where I draw someone's personal birth chart and put it into a piece of resin.
What helps you work?
Listening to podcasts, YouTube or TV. Specifically regarding true crime, cults, International Relations, and scammers.
What is your biggest challenge with this medium?
This might sound silly, but actually mixing the resin and getting started. My hands cause me the most pain and having to stir the resin can sometimes deter me altogether.
What is the best advice you can give a new artist?
I would advise searching YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and google for tips and tricks when they are starting. I also would say to not get discouraged if something doesn't sell right away or they make mistakes/things don't turn out how they want. Resin is a learning process and if you keep at it you will improve.
What do you for fun besides art?
I love to hike with my doggo, play with my cats, make art of different forms, read fantasy fiction and just be in nature.
Who is your favorite artist?
This is a hard question because I have soooo many individuals that inspire me constantly. Some of their IG handles are @xxplortivity @serendipity.pours @rogue.resin @skyeandskulls @nikkilafluidart @amethysticalvibes
