I'm Grace Sanford, 67, and I live in Henderson Nevada, right next to Las Vegas. Born in Texas and grew up mainly in Pasadena, right next to Houston. I have 3 grown daughters, 4 grandsons and another grandchild expected next February. I'm divorced, gay, and retired. I have lots of time to do all the things I love to do such as Swap-Bot and IUOMA mail art, crafting, reading, internet surfing, playing games, watching movies and videos, and listening to music. I'm mobility disabled, but I have walkers and my GoGo Elite Plus 3 scooter so I'm good to go places too. I've been creating art my entire life, and I am an artist in temperament and ability, but I never did go to art school or make a career from art, but I'm hoping this will happen in my next life.
Art I like to do:
DRAWINGS - detailed, geometric, black pen drawings, which I then sometimes color in with colored markers or colored pencils, or sometimes leave them black and white.
ABSTRACT - usually geometric abstract, paintings with acrylic, or opaque watercolor.
CONSTRUCTIONS - (cardstock or thin cardboard) of geometric solids, boxes, small chests-of-drawers, etc.
ZINES - I've made 3 so far and totally love the creativity of this miniature format. I've written down about 10 ideas for new ones I hope to make this year.
QUILLING (paper rolling)
PAPER COLLAGE - paper from magazines, mail, packaging, etc.
DIGITAL COLLAGE - and other computer art, and page layout design
STAMP CARVING - I love making my own stamps. I started doing it because I can't afford to buy them.
