I am a mother of 2 girls and a grandmother of 2 girls. My youngest daughter (14) is my inpiration for alot of my pictures. I have been doing art in some form since I was a little girl. I was an artist for my living while in my twenties. I have since had art as a stress reliever, gift motivator and passion for my self expression. I love intense colors and bohemian art. I am eclectic and love whimsy, non-traditional, textures and color, color, color. I surround myself with whimsy and colorful bohemian things. I love ethnic things and tend toward using various ethnic people in my artwork. I love looking at the art-zine magazines and seeing the levels of people's imagination and creations. I love altered art, it allows everyone to explore their artistic side and have the freedom to create.
Favorite colors: pink/orange combo, black/white combo, teals/lime green and all spicy fall and ocean colors.
Favorite crafts at the moment: altered art dolls and dotee dolls. They have become a passion with each new challenge.)
ATC's - I love really creative ones
Matchbox shrines - love, love these
I looking forward to working on other art outside of the swaps when time allows, however, until then, these swaps have kept the creative juices flowing:)
Favorite thingies: retro stuff (owls,(my daughter collects) 1 inch or less frogs with crowns, or turtles (they are a collection)not much cutesy stuff, more creative, artistic unique stuff, cool clipart and vintage pictures (would love to have some of ethnic peoples rather than the regular victorian or mainstream pictures). love mermaids, fairies, trolls, dragons, vampires, elves, and all mystical creatures. I am now collecting unique tea cup and saucers.(as a result of swaps). I love chocolate, and any cookie thingies.
Dislikes: I really try not to use stickers much and really only like stickers if they are owls or vintage things that could be copied and used in collages. Don't care much for the foamy stuff either
