NOTE: I've been without a computer for a while so am just now getting back into swapping.Have missed this place and am looking forward to many great swaps!!!
If you have not received from me, please let me know. I always send or contact you about any problems and I expect the same courtesy. Also, I rate as soon as I receive and don't like having to chase people down to rate me. Please be courteous and rate when a piece is received. Thanks!
My user name use to be ArtzyLady until someone took it from me when the site changed over to a permanent user name. But, for whatever reason, when I upload photos they still show up as being uploaded by ArtzyLady. Go figure!
THEMES: I love faries, dragons, gargoyles, witchy/pagan images, angels, Day of the Dead skeletons, Zetti type images, travel images, celestial, Goddess imagery, pretty much any thing except political type arts & Christian imagery. Ravens are an all time favorite of mine. I even have custom raven tattoos on each arm.
My favorite colors are purple, magenta, teal & blue, but I like all colors except perhaps pastels. I'm definitely not a pastel person!
I love the Nightmare Before Christmas and have loads of Jack Skellington items in my house. I have a thing for old graveyards and enjoy wandering around them checking out all the cool art work on the stones and statues.
I am Pagan & a registered Priestess with the Fellowship of Isis. The goddesses I am dedicated to are Menrva, Epona, Morgan & Vesta. Spirituality & honoring my Goddesses through creativity is a very important aspect of my daily life.
I have 1cat, 2 dogs (Siberian Husky & miniature menace), a horse (Welsh/QH), a wonderful husband & one son. I love the outdoors, gardening, reading, creating art every day and exploring nature. I'm a bit of a wild child and rather eccentric. But aren't all artists eccentric anyway???
Collective Soul, Pink Floyd, The Stones, Days of the New, Mozart, Jet, Queen, Blues Traveller, The Dead, Nickleback, Puddle of Mudd, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden and much, much more!
Some Like It Hot, Chocolat, Notting Hill, Never Been Kissed, Wizard of Oz, Somewhere In Time, A Walk In the Clouds, Nightmare Before Christmas, Four Weddings and A Funeral, My Cousin Vinny, Mona Lisa Smile, Tea With Mussolini, Under the Tuscan Sun
I am a self taught artist who has been creating art for over 20 years now. I enjoy working in varied media including paint, fabrics, fibers, polymer clay & PMC, paper, wire, beads, Caran D'ache crayon, water soluble oil pastel and dyes. I believe in creating art every day as a way to keep in tune with my spiritual nature. I've organized numerous swaps of ATC's, art dolls, altered journal round robins, etc.
Christian symbols or images (except angels which I see as Universal), shoddily made pieces of art, closed minds, flakers & people who never rate even though you've repeatedly asked them to.....
