About Me

I'm an avid fiber and mixed-media artist who dabbles in just about any creative medium I can get my hands on. I mostly work with fibers for spinning & felting, but also play with mixed media/ensemblage and have been known to work with wire, beads, paint, ink, paper, fabric, clay, buttons, thread, and other odd stuff I find...

I love: ravens, vivd and extreame color combinations, Kaffe Fassett fabric, unusual stickers, altered art, gumball/cracker jack charms, chocolate & sweets, ATCs (artist trading cards), Mail Art, watch/clock gears,skelleton keys, beads, fun & unusual fibers, foreign coins and postage stamps, empherma, interesting & unusual rubber stamps...

If you are making an ATC for me, I ask that you think outside the box. If you would normally use a rubber stamp to create your image or use scrapbook stickers, I beg you to stretch your creativity, get out of your comfort zone and get messy! Smear some paint, draw some squiggly lines, cut up a magazine and make a collage... embrace the unexpected and revel in the creative process. Remember finger painting as a kid or sidewalk art with colored chalk? Find that happy place and make some art! I'll heart you for it!

Favorite Music

LOVE indie music & alternative... I also listen to traditional, ethnic, folk, punk, classical, blues, bluegrass, whatever strikes my mood. I have very, very ecclectic tastes!

Favorite Television

Hex (BBC), Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Carnival, Deadwood, The Lost Room, Big Bang Theory, The Tudors, Weeds,

Favorite Movies

My taste in movies is as ecclectic as my taste in music... it all depends on my mood. I like period films, films based on true stories, indie flicks, foreign films, some sci-fi, comedy and action movies. Not really into gore or horror unless its something starring Bruce Campbell.

Comment: Took me a bit to find you dear! You didn't mark which swap this was from. In any event, This is the most beautiful card I have a.) recieved and b.) seen and c.) dreamed...and oh how I've dreamed.. I've just begun to play with stitching (i used to sew a lot but.. well.. lost all that.. ) and have yet to tweak this old machine I found to work well. Your card is an inspiration. This is a card I'll treasure forever. One that may even end up on the wall.. er something.. to show it off.. it's gorgeous. Thank you SO very much for parting with it. Jill
