MAMA CHICKPEA’S HOBBIES
MAMA CHICKPEA’S HOBBIES…WELL, THE SHORT LIST
February 7, 2023 | MAMA CHICKPEA
Over the years, Mama Chickpea’s list of hobbies has been extensive. Drawing, painting, sculpting, sewing, knitting, felting, collage, and computer graphics, are major highlights of the list, but hardly all-inclusive.
Her studio favorites consist of my sewing machine, computer equipment, various traditional supplies, an electric oven, and a kiln. She even owns a wooden spinning wheel!
Sleeping Beauty might have time for rest, but Mama Chickpea sure hasn’t! Every time she’s found passion for an art, her knack of marketing has led to some sort of self-made business. For nearly a decade, she won various awards in art show circuits across Ohio & Pennsylvania. Her first brick & mortar storefront was born from her unique knitting & felting fashion design. Her first online store originated with her personalized clay sculptures.
It is only natural a Mama Chickpea is ever-evolving into whatever artistic design and marketing comes next. One thing is for sure, her Prince Charming will always come bearing art supplies!

Like any 24/7 mom, she cherishes her brief gym time, and her daily shower in peace. Art has always been her escape from the insanity of life, and is often the inspiration behind many of her illustrations.
