As my dad always said, I'm a jack of all trades and a master of nothing!
I work for a coroner's office and have really started to delve into darker/medically-related artwork. How can I not with all the influences around me? My job is part CSI, part Dr. G. Medical Examiner, part Trauma: Life in the ER, and part Oprah (and a lot of times, part Jerry Springer....) But I love it! It's always been my dream job.
I love love LOVE to collage! Cut it past it paint it!!I work in art journals, on greeting cards, and canvas. I've started getting more and more into very Michael deMeng - esque assemblages which are so much fun!!
I love to use all sorts of mixed media techniques in a variety of Alice in Wonderland pieces.
I love to explore the darker, macabre, morbid, and just creepier side of things lately. Creatures made up of multiple animals, dismembered bisque dolls, steampunk... the darker deviant arts I guess you could call it.
I've really enjoyed delving into metals, old hardware pieces, little antique dolls, and the unusual. I would absolutely ADORE anyone that could send old vintage medical equipment/advertising/photography/images. I love Anything and EVERYTHING by Tim Holtz
My current search - an antique pair of optical trial lens frames! Plus any old pharmacy equipment, medical equipment, etc.
Alice in wonderland-esque supplies (the darker and creepier the better)
Memory glass frames and glass pieces (a jewelry findings company just started making these for WAAY cheaper!)
Transparencies and transparent images
Tim Holtz Ideaology clock faces, gears, plastic charms, and plastic fragments
Antique medical equipment even Itty bitty medical equipment I can paint or alter (even plastic stuff would work)
Vintage autopsy pics (even if printed from the internet as long as its on high quality paper)
Antique pharmacy labels
Porcelain doll heads/arms/hands/legs
A tiny bird cage
Voodoo related stuff - specially Baron Samadee
Glazing and crackle mediums (like the ones from Ranger for the 3-D effects)
Mushroom decore - love that 70's stuff :) Or plaster mushroom jars/containers/statuettes I can paint or play with. Anything with mushrooms!!
tiny bisque (white ceramic) dolls
The Graphic 45 Steampunk collection
Anything from the K&Co Que Sera Sera Collection (rub-ons, specialty papers, cardstock, die cuts, stickers, etc)
The types of stickers I like and use the most are ones that I can easily incorporate into collages or just plain funky! :)
Stickers on clear backing
Swirls, whorls, abstract shapes
Anything you might expect in a Tim Burton movie (the odd and unusual)
Vintage stickers from the 80's!!!
I have NO USE for -
Letter stickers (I have a huge tupperware box of them!)
Pale pinks. It just reminds me of frilly little girl dresses (and the tortures of being forced to wear them as a child). Same goes for anything in a pastel. Yuck!
Cutesy, country kitsch - little girls with bonnets/roosters/buckets of flowers/geese - you know what I mean
Candy wrappers/food wrappers
I don't use buttons. I don't like buttons. Please don't send buttons
