After thinking about this for a couple of days, I decided to look up the definition of both folk art and naïve art. This is what I found:
Naïve art is a classification of art that is often characterized by childlike simplicity in its subject matter and technique.
Folk Art - art originating among the common people of a nation or region and usually reflecting their original culture especially everyday or festive items produced or decorated by unschooled artists.
I am not actually a 'naïve' person in the true sense of the work - after all, at my age if I were naïve it would mean I haven't been paying attention. But there's no reason why my art can't reflect this tone and style. In the end I realized that all I want is to to reflect the joy that I get from the work of my hands. I think that will be enough of a definition for me.
