About Me

I think of myself as an ATC artist. After painting with acrylics for about a year, I started wondering what to DO with all those paintings. Attempting to SELL my art would remove all the joy. When I discovered ATCs I felt that I had found my niche.


I work in all media. I love to try new techniques. My most original-looking work right now is alcohol marker on Yupo. I think my AI/Y cards have a distinctive look. I also paint cards with acrylic on canvas. I am improving at watercolor.


I like ATCs that have something unique, original, or different. I also like it when the artist puts extra information on the back, such as what media was used and/or what inspired the card.


"Fan Art" does not really appeal to me. I'd rather see an amateurish original image than a perfectly-rendered COPY of a character designed by someone else. I love animals, but I do not usually like to do pet-portraits. (However.... I HAVE been inspired by photos, when a pet is really cute....)

Why did I Join Swap-bot?

I joined Swap-bot in July 2020, when I saw a "Halloween in July" swap announced on the "ATC Artist Trading Cards" Facebook Group board. Since I dearly love Halloween, I thought I would give Swap-bot a try.

I trade ATCs through several Facebook groups, through the website ATCs for All, and on Instagram. I thought it would be interesting to see how Swap-bot works.

What do I Like about Swap-bot?

I am intrigued by all the possibilities. I joined an electronic Scavenger hunt as my second event. It was really FUN and such a simple, no-cost, low-pressure way to swap.


I am finding it a little difficult to join ATC swaps because so many hosts do not allow Newbies. But I will keep trying and I will say, to those who DO accept persons-without-a-proven-track-record: THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME A CHANCE.

(It's tough to be a new kid at any time of life, but when you are 65 it is really intimidating!)
