I'm a jack of all trades and a master of nothing! I paint, draw, cut, color, collage, sculpt, and decorate.
I'm a scientist, a thinker, a dreamer, a pragmatist, a cynic, an optimist, and am finally confident enough to say.. I am an ARTIST!
I love love LOVE to collage! I typically work on canvas or upcycle found substrates for larger pieces (anything up to 3 or 4 feet) but I'm also a big fan of art journaling, artist trading cards, & funky mail art. Cut it! Paste it! Paint it! That's my motto :)
I love to use a variety of techniques and am always looking for new ways to learn and experiment.
I love to explore the darker, macabre, morbid, and just creepier side of things and juxtapose them with items of beauty.
I incorporate science into almost all of my artwork through technical drawings, schematics, vintage biological illustrations, macro photography, and human/animal anatomical illustrations.
Images of the human body contorted into any variety of beautiful ways (mostly black and white) - dancers, circus folk, etc.
Vintage papers/book pages
Foreign language papers/book pages
Alcohol markers, paint pens, watercolor pencils/pens/markers (new or used, as long as they still have some life left in them)
An alcohol blending marker!
Applicators and blenders for inks, chalks, and accenting mediums
Antique medical, dental, veterinary, or biology images, advertisements, or ephemera
RUB-ONS!! I absolutely love the Basic Grey Olio's but they must have stopped making these
Alice in wonderland-esque supplies (just not playing cards - I already have every size, shape, color, and theme imaginable)
Transparencies and transparent images
For all you die-cutting machine addicts... I make art with layer upon layer upon layer! I would love handfuls of paper die-cuts in swirly shapes, silhouettes (people or plants), outlines of various geometric shapes, lacy papers, flowers, and again... lots of swirly shapes! :) I use them for background texture. Paper doilies are so thin though that they're practically useless for my needs.
I would love love LOVE small toys/figurines (like the ones from Happy Meals) or stickers of vintage 80's or 90's cartoons: Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers, Duck Tales, Gummi Bears, Tailspin, Gremlins, Ghostbusters, Tiny Toons, Pinky & the Brain, The Simpsons, etc.
The types of stickers I like and use the most are ones that I can easily incorporate into collages or are just plain funky and cool :)
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 and early 90's!!! I love cartoons from this era
Pretty much anything except preschool age kiddie stickers or superhero stickers.
Scrapbooking phrase/word/title stickers
Brads, eyelets, or ribbons
Letter stickers (I have a huge tupperware box of them!)
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
I really don't care for tea or hot cocoa. But I'd never say no to real chocolate!
