Get to Know
Somewhither Arts is the art work of me - Laura Nagaran-McCarthy. Being a fun loving but quiet type, I really got involved in art in college. I guess all those years when I was dragged to the museums by my parents rubbed off on me, and I wanted to learn how to make my own pieces. I finished my stay at Northern Arizona University in 1993 earning a Bachelors in Fine Arts with an emphasis in painting. I love crafting with various materials. I took a hiatus from oil painting while my kids were but babes for I was scared that the fumes would do something bad to their brain cells. In that time, learned beading and papercrafting. I love to integrate materials in my work. I feel inspired by the world around me. Most of the time a word, quote, image or even another person will get me thinking of a new piece to work on. Originally a San Diego girl, I now reside in the Phoenix, Arizona area with my family.
And for those of you wondering about the name, Somewhither Arts, here's the explanation. Years ago, my sister and I were talking about if I should do business under my name or come up with a name. She threw out the word Somewhither. Now somewhither means "to some indeterminate place; to some place or other." I liked that, a lot. So when it finally became time for a business name I chose Somewhither Arts - to a destination of art.
