I am mother to one grown daughter. Small things make me happy most days. I am some kind of artist; really I am finding my creative way again after decades of doing other "jobs". I like trying new techniques, postcards, ATC cards, paint, collage papers, embellishments. All my work is one of a kind; paper and glue with small items digital but printed hand colored, etc. I spend lots of time (too much probably) on my small creations. I just hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them.
If you do not receive a swap from me -- call 9-1-1 because I must had died. Then P.M. me, perhaps dementia sets in without warning. In other words, I don't sign up for a swap unless I plan to do it. If anything comes up on your side please PM me because I will understand, just don't not send.
I PROMISE TO RATE FOR BETTER OR WORSE.
Paper, I am crazy for fancy handmade papers, love colors, zetti colors. Recycle, reuse. Only obsess over STUFF for mixed media collages. Especially love good tropical; the color turquoise!I (not pastel); India motifs, French country color, patterns; any related DANCE, Geisha, Pinup, Wings, Crowns, Royal, French, interesting papers, charms. Actor/Actress pics (my printer sucks). Sassy or witty; also like Anahata Katkin, Teesha Moore & Oilily color, sunny, happy. Love Zettiology (what is that exactly beside wonderful?) Covet one of those French Chocolate Stamps --anyone in France????
I love live theater!!! Helen Hayes is still my queen. Old films Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey H, Kate & Spencer, DAVID NIVEN, George Clooney, Johnny Depp; Classics & mysteries; foreign films, independent artsy films
John Lennon (70s were great); anything Beatles; Motown, blues jazz; tenors; Classic remakes; my partner's obsessed with big band era & has an old phonograph in the garage always playing some dance band vinyl. This is where we sometimes just stop whatever & dance.............
Home decorating books and art books keep me inspired. Aristotle for guidance. I am spiritual but not religious.
Magazine Stampington -- my work is in Autumn 2012:
News junkie; closet detective (like solving mysteries); Grey's Anatomy & Desperate Housewives; fill in while doing arts/crafts with background shows like Mentalist, Closer, Nancy Grace, Craig Ferguson, PBS.
I only do oil painting & mixed media collage right now. I'm fairly new at this collage thing. They are amazing & for me time consuming. Some of my ATCs take me days to finish -- I admit to being old and slow.
Artists I love: Saint Victor Diaries, Anahata Katkin, Frida Kahlo, R. Kenton Nelson; Malcolm Liepke; Victor Wang. MacKenzie-Childs, Teesha Moore anything; folk art; Oilily fashion art. The Lint Museum -- wonderful collage work.
Goth, cartoons, scary images, Disney, stickers on a page, People who do not put effort into their swaps. NON RATERS.
