About Me

I am a multi-media artist who resides in Eastern Ontario with her partner, young daughter, and her two misbehavin mini daschunds(Bratwurst and Kafka). Thinking of changing Bratwurst's name to the Great Houndini, can't keep him in the yard and its totally fenced. A Personal Motto: Art is meant to be part of everyday life.

If anyone ever receives a PC from me damaged could you please PM me so I know that it may be necessary to alter that design feature for any future PC's. Dealing with the various postal services is sometimes a challenge and there is a definite learning curve. Anyways my inquiring mind would like to know when something doesn't quite survive the trip. I will still agonize each time I receive something that has arrived less then perfect whether to mention it. I usually read their profile when I am trying to decide so I thought I would put in mine "Please let me know" Thanks

Favorite Music

Will never give up my LP's. Now I just need to learn how to use my new turntable which allows me to download to the computer(FINALLY hooked this UP). My tastes vary greatly but can be lumped into Alternative. Depends on my mood, some days it is Linkin Park, Tool, others Ben Harper, or some good acid jazz. Most recent favourite listening pleasure - Thievery Corporation and a podcast called Coverville

Favorite Books

Been reading just about everything lately. If it has the written word it will probably be read by me or at least quickly accessed for its future potential.

Favourite colours

I like jewel tones and metallics and of course black. Otherwise most earth tones, absolutely no pastels.

Likes

Bats & Spiders

Roman Dirge, Edward Gorey, Neil Gaimen, Dave Mckean, Vertigo Comics

searching for

Children's books in German, French or Spanish. I wish to teach my daughter German, my husband wants to teach her French and I would like to learn some Spanish and teach her some also.

Favourites Arts/Crafts

Let's see. HHHMMMM. Well I do embroidery, beadwork, crazypatch, basically anything involving fabric. I also do a variety of altered art and mixed media. Like to combine things like mirror, metal, fabric, paper basically anything that strikes my fancy at the time. It comes down to the fact that I like to play around with techniques and mediums.

Been doing a lot of clothing design out of repurposed fabrics/clothing

Daughter and Hubby.

My daughter is 5 likes bright colours, especially purple. She thinks witches, spiders and bats are cool and is really into Arts/Crafts.

My partner is a computer nerd who likes reading, rockets and keeping his girls happy.

Dislikes or Don't Need

DISLIKES

Scented anything. I have allergies

Pastels
