I like swapping all kinds of art!
I rate within a day or two of receiving something, so if you haven't heard from me about something you sent, please do drop me a PM. I hate not being rated so I want to be sure to rate you!
I live just outside of the city of New York, commute a long way to work every day, and dream of the day I can retire. I like my job, but I'd rather play all day. I have two Wheaten Terriers who I adore ridiculously and a partner of more than 20 years. I am old enough to know better than to tell my age.
I like altered art, repurposed things, making the old into something new. Paper and boxes make me happy. I love odd and strange stuff. I like imagery of women, but not sentimental or prissy ones. I like mermaids, but I'm not big on fairies or angels. Love a nice goddess. I like textures of all kinds; I'm very tactile. I like gadgets and computers (I'm a tech geek). I am an animal lover, with a particular soft spot for giraffes (tiny giraffes!) and elephants.
I am always interested in seeing other peoples' art. Whatever you make, whatever inspires you, I want to see it!
I am very smitten with all things mail art and postal: postage new, old, and faux; rubber stamps, zines, hand made envelopes, etc. You get the idea.
I have a strange fondness for anthropomorphizing inanimate objects, especially from old cookbooks (like smiling eggplants or dancing wooden spoons).
If you send me a pamphlet cookbook from before 1960 with a woman on the cover, I'm yours forever.
More stuff I like:
Themes or designs I like:
Things that are not ever welcome in my house:
Things I don't care for or have no use for:
I am also not a fan of babies with wings, or babies in dunce caps, or babies dressed in cute outfits to look like something else (Anne Geddes stuff), or that sort of thing. (Nothing against babies per se!).
ALLERGIES: I am allergic to cats, dogs (yes, I have dogs, but they are hypoallergenic -- some breeds are worse than others for me), mold, dust and cigarette smoke. Oh, and coconut. I'd appreciate your efforts to keep my swaps relatively free of the things that make me wheeze (especially the cat hair!). So, you know, just don't smoke while petting your cat and making my swap in a damp basement, and I"ll be okay.
I make ATCs, digital collage, zines, cards, altered art, photography, rubber stamped things, matchbook shrines and other kinds of paper art.
I like a lot of crafts I'm not good at. I will try any craft once.
I really like scavenger hunts!
