About Me

I love to paint. My wish is to express the joy I find in color and in the everyday. When I'm not painting, I daydream and try to find the next wonderful thing to paint. When I do paint, I slip into the world of color, light, and forms. Time stands still and nothing can distract me. I'm at peace.

I discovered ATCs about a year ago and become instantly addicted. The thing I love about ATCs is that it allows me to create and give away little bits of art just for the joy of it. The best things in life art free! (typo not intended but I'm keeping it!)

Favorite Music

I like just about any kind of music. From classical to pop. Anything that grabs me, is fun or moody, or is just good music. I am always changing around my playlists to include a really complex mix. Right now I'm listening to: anything Chicago blues including Muddy Waters, anything bluegrass including Uncle Earl, The Band, Grateful Dead, Little Feat, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Aimee Mann, Suzanne Vega, and Regina Spektor, Rickie Lee Jones, the Smiths, ... well you get the idea.

Favorite Movies

I have a fondness for Woody Allen films. Anything Independent and avant-garde.

Favorite Crafts

ATCs mostly, but branching out into just about anything handmade.

I'm collecting anything!

I really enjoy anything made by hand. From hand drawn to collages. I admire artist who takes risks. The swap community is for trying new things. I love anything to do with the creative process.

I'm drawn to ...

Gardens, fairies, angels, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, anything with wings.

Oceans, lakes, rivers, water scenes and water creatures. And mermaids and mermen! The colors of water, blue, blue green, teal ...

Abstract art, anything layered and lyrical.

Art history.

Other Things I Like ...

Tea, any kind

Dried Flowers

Photos of Gardens - especially your own

Photos of Doors

Polaroid Photos

"Real Photos" - printed from a negative

Old Postcards - especially already sent ones

Sea Glass

Paper Dolls

Any unused note cards w/envies

Comment: Such a pretty envelope and even prettier card. I love this one. Fits nicely with my paisley themed items, which I collect. I especially think the red which bleeds to pink is very artistic and interesting. I know a lot of people do Zentangles as an experimental type of art, but I hope you stay with them because this card was a true masterpiece.
Response: wow, thank you!

@VallesAvallonis It is always hard to start. The best thing to do is jump in and draw, cut, paste, color, paint, whatever. The nice thing about ATCs is that if you don't like what you did, just throw it away and start again. After you do a few, then look at other ATCs for ideas and inspiration. Or maybe the other way around. That is what I did.

VallesAvallonis on Apr 26, 2010:

If you were to give someone a few "tips" about how to create an ATC what would you suggest? I have a few blanks I received in the mail, but I just look at them wondering what I could possibly do.
