About Me

Hi! I am a California native, a graphic designer for a company that caters to non-profits (it's a dream-job, they pay me to do what I love!), and a mom to 2 stunningly handsome and multi-talented grown boys (20 and 23). I live on the coast and love jumping in the ocean, lying in the sun, and riding my bike along the beach bike path.

In my spare time I love being creative by making collages, drawing, calligraphy, stamping and painting. Lately I've been making portrait collages/tag paper dolls for gifts for family and friends. I just finished a drawing (portrait) class and have enrolled in a collage class.

My favorite colors are bright, vivid, rich, lush. No pastels or neutrals for me! I love anything vintage, especially from the 50's and 60's. I also like ultra feminine girly stuff.

I like country music (sorry!) and cowboys and horses. I like to ride my bike or take a stroll around town. I go to the library a lot and read all the time. My favorite authors are Margaret Atwood, T.C. Boyle, Ann Tyler, Michael Kun. For something to think about, I'm reading the Power of Now. I like movies that make you feel good, like Little Miss Sunshine and Monsoon Wedding, also old black and whites, documentaries and film noirs. I like going to art shows and museums but don't do it enough (maybe now I will!).

More Stuff I Like...

Bicycles, fruit, lime green and turquoise, paper dolls, shopping, long Hair, a bit of glitter, fringe or lace in art, ponies (when I was growing up, my dad ran a business taking pictures of kids on ponies - western attire and all), vintage Barbie and other dolls, dashboard hula girls, black and white or 50's color photos. I like pictures and text from old books, magazines and advertisements. Scrabble,Crosswords, board games.

Art for Art's Sake

I love getting art that tells me a little about you! I know what my favorite things are, I'd rather find out what yours are! So don't feel it's necessary to include something from my profile, I'm open to your interests! I may be wrong here, but I rate art and give hearts according to the thought, effort, neatness, and, yes, talent and style that go into a piece, not by how much it is to my "likes" or by the little gifts/extras that are added in the package.

I'm a two-faced Gemini!...

The following comments are how I feel about art that I create, not about what you should make for me (see above) I don't really like cute cartoon or realistic animal images on their own, even though I do love animals. I don't really like nature scenes without something else, though I do love nature! I love my living space and my office to be totally uncluttered and sparse but love chaos in art. I really, really hate housework and am a terrible cook, but am drawn to domestic scenes/objects in art. I like custom digital art and often create pieces this way, but I don't like new, common, mass produced scrapbook supply stuff much. Go figure, hunh?

Humor me

I do like dark, senseless or quirky humor. I love words or phrases on art. I like silly stuff. My favorite pictures are of people... any kind, ordinary (even seemingly mundane) to fantasy.

Comment: Wow. I don't know where to begin with this swap. I opened the box and it took my breath away. I love the collage so much! And the notecards too. If I could give you 50 hearts I would. This is the reason I swap here on swapbot. I LOVE IT! Thanks so much. Have a great holiday season.

Comment: I LOVE your ATC's!! All 3 of them could have been the 'for me' one :) but that one; how did you know!!! I looked all thru my profile and thru myspace...and I didn't see it listed anywhere, but that was my motto for the first part of this year and my signature at the Weight Watchers forum. "Forget Love I want to fall in chocolate" You deserve 100 hearts! I love the sleeves, they are great!

Comment: I love the little envelopes that you made to put the sleeved cards in! How cute! I think the "Pixie Greetings" is my favorite, as I have a collection of pixies/elves that look similar to the ones featured on the ATC. blessings, Gypsy

Response: You're welcome, I'm glad you liked them! The angel was a little distressed looking but I more realistic because of it, I thought. Roxy
