Hey!

Hello! These swaps keep me challenged, interested, and excited to learn new things. I use art making as art therapy to uplift and quench that little craving... Sometimes I spend hours layering color, line and texture, and other days I want to plan out watercolor that feels blissfully effortless. It all depends on my mood and energy. I’m not a full time art dabbler, so it feels exciting to spend time with my supplies creating for swaps. *Life in balance is always my challenge... looking forward to getting artsy with all of you!

So,

I’m inspired by nature, colors, people, animals, food, original hand printed, painted, drawn, sewed, stitched, cut & pasted designs, & creative use of materials, and beautiful art! I look forward to making and trading with you! I love making ATC size art but I'm really enjoying the 5x7 art swaps and the postcard trades too...you can send my postcards naked or wrapped, senders choice! Thank you!

Mmm!

Love coffee, coffee theme stuff, funny and inspirational words of wisdom...MMM & all the teas, botanical themes, science themes, fun stickers (Mrs. Grossman’s addict from the 80’s...yes I had my own sticker club when I was 10! Hehe!) and stamps, pattered papers and tapes...I like glittery stuff too! Love cute woodland animals, and natural stuff, oceans, cactus, flowers, and trees... (I'm from Arizona-Minnesota-Arizona.. now back in Minnesota). Oh! Cats... did I mention my love of cats and funny cat quotes... I have one wall in my house dedicated to cat stuff! I work with watercolors on cold pressed cotton papers or mixed media on salvaged scraps. When I have time I like to dabble in other mediums. My dream is have more time to experiment with new materials and to stock up my Etsy shop.

And let’s not forget...

“The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before.” Neil Gaiman

“We have so much time and so little to do. Strike that, reverse it.” Roald Dahl

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined." Henry David Thoreau

“I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.” -Frida Kahlo

“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” Neil Gaiman
