About Me

Who am I? Artist, mother of three children, wife, fabric designer.

What do I like (in no particular order)?

  • My taste in art ranges all over: I love the work of many women artists from Cindy Sherman to Betye Saar, Judy Chicago and Sha Sha Higby. I love printmakers such as Claire Leighton and Helen Hyde. I also love the artwork of Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington, Frieda Kahlo, Leonora Fini and Meinrad Craighead. I love Symbolist art and the Pre-Raphelites. Really getting into contemporary Afrofuturism like the work of Joshua Mays. I also enjoy art that spans two cultures. Much of the art above falls in that category.

  • I enjoy good chocolate, hot chocolate and a cup of tea. I guess I am a bit of a foodie. I try to cook one new dish a week.

  • I can't say I have a favorite color but rather I am more frequently drawn to earth tones and bright pastels. Lately, blue violet seems to be catching my eye.

  • I am pagan, which to me means I think God/dess is immanent and transcendent. To connect, I spend time outdoors and hike around quite a bit. I have relationships with the deities Kali, Pan, Sekmet, Brigid and beginning relationship with Frigg.

  • I am a dancer and enjoy exploring many kinds of dance. Lately, I have been bellydancing and swing dancing.

*I have lived in the US, Africa and the Caribbean.

  • love plants of all kinds and enjoy learning about foraging.

Favorite Television

love many, alternative, folk, old timey, torch, jump blues, rock, world, celtic, medieval, renaissance

Favorite Movies

love sci-fi, and quirky movies

Favorite Television

don't really watch tv, but download episodes of the new Dr. Who, The Expanse, Agents of Shield.

Favorite Crafts

printmaking-usually woodcut or linocut, any fabric art. I love to jump in an explore many different crafts.

Favorite Books

Pretty much love all of Neil Gaiman's work and writing based on mythology. I like science fiction primarily, fantasy and non-fiction.

Comment: Love love LOVE your ATC! The exhibit (in Detroit) is crazy cool!!! I’ve seen it like 20+ times! (Makes sense since I live so close lol) I’m just glad you’ve seen it! They’ve been talking about changing it (but hopefully that never happens!)

Comment: This ATC is absolutely beautiful. You did an amazing job and definitely captured the spirit of Leonor’s painting. Thank you for including the information. Her art is odd and confrontational so naturally i love it. LOL!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC! I really like the happy Buddha...I also like how you altered the card! Thanks as well for the fabric scraps, they went directly into the little stash I keep for mixed media fodder! Is it time yet to say Happy Spring?! No maybe not, not here anyway...

Comment: Hi Penney! Thank you for the lovely quail card! I love it. It's even more special since it traveled all the way from Ghana! I'm not good with going to the gym, but we did buy a treadmill for Christmas (not romantic or exciting...LOL!) and my New Year's resolution is to use it 6 days a week. Good luck with yours, I know I'll need it! Patricia
