About Me

*Please, please, PLEASE, on the very rare chance that you do not receive something from me, email me so we can work it out...Thanks!

I am a professional photographic artist looking to get back into ATC's. I'm currently taking private drawing instruction and thought this would be a fun way to hone my skills. I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico with my beloved husband Tom (you know him as Starweaver), 17 year old step-daughter, Anne-Marie (part-time) two cats (full-time!) and various other kitties who come to the door looking for a handout, which we naturally give them. :)

I love anything that has to do with animals (Ravens especially!!!!) of ANY sort and/or nature items as well. (yes, I'm a treehugger...no...really...okay...have you ever hugged a tree? Awesome...)

Favorite colors are COPPER, violet, browns, greens...anything earthy.

I was an antique dealer for many years, so victorian era and ladies are a favorite too.

Favorite Music

I really do enjoy all types of music.

Favorite Movies

Anything with Katherine Hepburn or Johnny Depp. A big fan of documentaries, indies, foreign films and most anything from the metaphysical/spiritual cinema genre.

Too many to mention, but most recent favs are, The Last Mimzy, The Story of the Weeping Camel, My Neighbor Totoro, Lady in the Water and Legend of 1900.

Favorite Crafts

ATC's (animals, nature and zetti are my current favorites), photography, metals, jewelry/beading, woodworking, mosaics and just about anything that allows me to use my hands. (But I need more time, time, time!!!)

Comment: Karen, thanks very much for the multiview card showing examples of your photographic art. I like the mood created by your pieces, all rather haunting and lonely in feel. I enjoy pieces that capture that kind of mood. I also like your narrative on the back in which you describe your process and thoughts about your work. Very nice! Regards, Cynthia
Response: Thank you for the kind words, Cynthia! That one was a leftover PC from my 2011 shows. They've been sitting around and I was so happy to be able to use them for this swap! :)

Comment: Thank you! The slant adds a sense of motion to the vehicles; it really works. And the old locomotive shot is particularly great!

Comment: Thank you, I love what you have done to the two photos, I would love photoshop as you can do so much more with it than the programme I use. One day I will save my dollers and buy it. hugs :-)

Comment: Hey Karen - Wow! I am thrilled to receive your artistic photos. My husband and I had a great time opening your packet....both photos are wonderfully creative...I loved the addt'l paper...and he was like a little boy when I told him the truck magnet was for him...that was great! Even your notecard is really cool. I am working to mail my swap today - and my "altering" talent isn't nearly as good as yours!! Hopefully you will like what I am sending ya :) Beth

Thank you for the surprise photos! Yesterday was a kind of rocky day for me, so an extra pick-me-up in the mail was especially appreciated. And your alteration of the photos is so fine-tuned! The horse has such a painterly quality, and the geese--wow, I am so glad to have this photo..... Thanks again.

Hello. I just got your cards. As I said , theyare my favorites. I was wondering--how you did the technique around the outside of the card? Is it simply mettalic marker? I noticed this on many of my cards and I like that extra touch!

artunderastar on May 14, 2007:

Hi animalchatter! Just had to drop you a line to say thank you so very much for the wonderful package! It arrived earlier today and I decided to "save" it for a treat tonight- and I'm so glad I did, I was so taken by your pocket ATC and could only marvel at the extra goodies! Thanks for such a wonderful surprise at the end of a very long day! lori eb.
