About Me

I teach mixed media art in the Houston area and have a community outreach program making weighted blankets for kids with Autism and teens with severe trauma.

Enjoying gelli plate, collage art, sewing, making handmade papers, mosaics, quilts and now these Artistamps!

I love doing travel photography - many of my photos are used for art backgrounds -- check out my ETSY store "myparismoon". I was also fortunate that some of my sports photos have been picked up by ESPN. I love capturing moments in time!

Potlucks at the community garden, old fashioned paddle boats trips to Coney Island beach/ amusement and aquarium and lots of outdoors with plenty of garden time are beautiful summer activities- I hope your season is wonderful!

Happy Birthday!

DaisyNY on Jul 22, 2018:

Apparently you had left a rating for me on July 5th - but I couldn't see it before for some reason. Either Swap-bot is glitchy or I am (or some combination).

Thank you!

DaisyNY on Jul 11, 2018:

I left you a message which is unread - do you need a resend of Scrap Paper Animals PC? It should have reached you by now.

CurlyTea on Sep 1, 2017:

A bit belated, but Happy Birthday!
