About Me

i am a retired graphic illustrator and painter - i was introduced to atc's in the 1990's, but waited until 2017 to dive into the game!

at once smitten, i am hooked now. i have always loved to try new mediums, but on a large scale it has always been difficult: before the internet, there was not enough help out there. hello youtube! i absolutely adore finding some new medium, and getting all the help you need on youtube... what a life-saver. i was an art student in the 80s and 90s, and have a pretty broad knowledge of the "classical" arts. the new methods, paints, and all are very exciting to try on a smaller scale!

i have a fair amount of time to devote to this fun hobby, and i consider myself to be very conscientious when it comes to being counted on.

Favorite Books

i have always been a lover of art history books that feature my favorite artists from the renaissance period to the present.

childrens illustrated books

fiction that takes me to faraway places/ nonfiction that teaches me new techniques in art/ poetry from any time period/ english romantic novels/ a good mystery/

i am a lover of fine magazines on art and crafts

Favorite Crafts

i have painted in watercolor and acrylics, pastels, colored pencil, and am trying gouache for the first time.

i love to make and collect collage and mixed media and have kept a few journals over the years which have helped keep me going.

i truly love fine papers : marbled, and watercolor, mostly.

i collect assemblage jewelry, and love the combination of antique papers, and paints.

WISH LIST

stamps from around the world, used or new/ vintage or antique ephemera/ marbled paper/ advertising from magazines or mail from other countries/ VINTAGE ILLUSTRATIONS vintage/antique architectural elements: doors, windows, corbels

Comment: Ah, Marlies, such a delightfully thoughtful swap! Enjoyed your typewritten note (if it's a typewriter font please don't burst my bubble). I scaled down ruthlessly when I last moved & miss my vintage Royal. Love the B&W real photo pc, but the young Elizabeth & Margaret, the French sugar poster & the vintage FL flamingos also tickle my fancy. And to top it all off you add a packet of stamps & cigar labels. Lucky me! Thank you so much.
Response: it was fun to hand pick these postcards for you! so glad you like them! thank you for the rating and the heart!

★彡 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓃𝓀 𝓎𝑜𝓊 彡★ for the wonderful postcard! I think it was a good call sending it protected - another piece of mail art that came today was soggy and ripped.

Thank you also for the book cover to repurpose! I've never gotten around to reusing an intact book cover to make a new journal, though I've saved some...half-baked ideas are a specialty of mine, too. 😉
