About Me

I am a middle school art teacher in British Columbia, Canada. I have 3 kids and a wonderful wife, and I have a need to create - art, food, baking...its all good!

Favorite colour: Blue

Favorite Crafts

I'm not fond of the term "crafting"...but I have been an artist and creator for as long as I can remember. I love working with clay, drawing ( especially pen and ink), painting, mixed media, fused plastic ( a newly discovered, fun way of working), art journalling, mail art and ATC's. I go wherever inspiration takes me. Like many creative people, I have a bit of artistic ADD. I really have to keep myself focused on the task at hand, but generally I find my brain wandering to other ideas, other techniques, other mediums... The best part of being an Art Teacher is that it allows me to try something new if I choose too, but still come back to old tried and true favorites.

Art materials I love

art materials I love: postage stamps, foreign paper currency ( especially from unusual countries), unusual paper from other countries ( foreign language newspapers are cool) creative ephemera ( in my collection I have old library cards, punch cards, joss paper) old envelopes with beautiful handwriting, maps, air mail labels, foreign book pages, ticket stubs, luggage tags, block printed paper, letter press items...

I am a bit of a packrat for interesting and unusual papers / materials, though I generally prefer the REAL thing over reproduction items or scrapbook paper imagery.

Comment: You were very brave to use scissors!
Response: I gotta admit. It was a little unnerving for me too. I cut REALLY slowly

Comment: Stewart, your envelope is super fantastic, I adore it...the orange, the collage, the stamps...also that tag will be perfect to hang on myself, some days...hehehe. Thank you, also for participating in my first swap. Oh, we went through the monster truck stage as well, also the fighter jet stage, complete with airshow...both of which hubs did escort duty for, phew!
Response: no problem Carroll....though for the life of me, I've forgotten what the tag was. Evidently funny though.

You. Are. Awesome. Thank you so much for the thoughtful package! It made my day. :) I'm gonna do a naked mail-art swap and I hope you will join. It's not exactly art, but you could probably think of a way to make into art :)
