About Me

I am an empty nester mom trying to re connect to my art. I have a bachelor degree in fine arts and have not done much while my kids were growing up aside from occasional art projects. I crochet, knit, paint, quilt, cake decorating, drawing, scrapbooking, and I will pretty much try anything. My husband is an artisan who turns wood. He is the one who encourage me to start doing more of my art. Been excited about mixed media collages lately. Excited about swapping!

likes

I am pretty easy going...I am always exploring new ideas and items. But here is a few items that I like

crabs birds vintage coastal items food chickens roosters too dogs people's faces....the more interesting the better interesting places.

Favorite Books

I use to read quite a bit....I enjoy Rollins, Lee Child, Dean Koontz but then occassionally I will read books like the Friday Night Knit club. I am currently reading the Lady in the Attic about a mystery cross stitch found by her granddaughter in a small New England town. I am enjoying the woman in the book.

Family

This section is devoted to my family: My husband Walt is a wood turner and is a wonderful husband....he certainly puts up with me. I have two sons, Andrew who is an automechanic. He owns a beautiful German Shepard that I adore but she is much to big to handle sometimes. She thinks she is a little dog. My son, Matthew just finished his degree in Linguistics. He wanted to go live in Japan and teach them English. When he gradutated he got cold feet and decide not to go. Of course the recent Tsunami didn't help. I own three dogs, a toy Poodle, Rosco, an engergetic Jack Russell...Bandit and a mixed rescue dog named Rusty who has more hang ups than any dog that I owned. My most beloved dog was Harley a boxer who was put down 3 years ago. My heart still aches. I am a family person and dog lover. I also love feeding my wildlife feathered friends.

Comment: ♥ Thank you so much for the wonderful ATC. Yes it looks like handmade paper with inclusions (plant material, fibers in the paper). I see you sent this way back in July. I never gave up hope that it would make it and it finally has, although a bit worse for wear. I am guessing it came on the back of a real snail to have taken this long. So glad it did because I really like your work. Thanks for the extras as well.
