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.

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.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Christmas card. I had to laugh at myself, as I quickly glanced at the back and thought "wow she wrote a long letter" after a second look I realized it was the same word over and over again 😂. Have yourself a very Merry Christmas and the best to you in the New Year.
