About Me

I Pledge

First off , hi everyone!!! I'm "el" nick name for elena... and I totally appologize if you are checking out my profile and noticing that I dont have that many swaps accomplished yet!!! It maybe should be more..in some people's opionion but for the months I have been swapping.. it's good for me..I take my time..and pride in each and every piece of art I send out..and as it's noted..it shows!..Now that I am getting the hang of the "groove" of these swaps..lol.. I am getting a little faster! lol.. but some people..amaze me..when I see their profile and see they are in about 20 swaps at a time!!! wow! I would FREAK out!! My "friends" KNOW..my personality..and KNOW.. I could NEVER handle that!! lol.. so please .. don't JUDGE me on my ABILITY..to be a GREAT SWAPPER/AND OR ARTIST..because I feel I AM!! lol.. ok... now..my story...I have always been an "artist" in some sort of way... wanting always as a child to be an actress.. going for my dream out in Hollywood California..and music was also a big part.. My family has a long history of great artist! (on my father's side) ..Starting with my great grandfather, who painted in Paris, my grandfather, who's art hangs in my house which should be in a museum(I had many many offers to hang in a gallery and sell for a lot of money ..but I turned them down! the painting I have is so spectactular..it's the only thing I wanted from him to leave me and he "signed it for me..when he was "legally blind" and it was still perfect beautiful writing!!) ! my father, which at a very young age, Chevorelet wanted him to draw cars for them and he later became a commercial artist and photographer( could draw anything and his handwriting is amazing!! to this day..I show everyone his letters addressed to me by him!! lol) , my brother/photographer and webdesigner..and my cousins in spain also are artists whom I have yet to meet. ( have many galleries there and successful) and many other relatives all over the country!!... .my mother is also very good and so is my own daughter..who drew an entire mural inside her highschool wall and won prize for it.!! I have wore many hats in my life, did a lot of different things ..but music and art have been top priority! I moved from California a few years ago to the mid west..and I have been a "fashion stylist" ..styling people for less money...selling all kinds of merch.... but still doing ART! ALL KINDS! , decorating someone's house, to card making..and now, ATC's..which seems to be everyone's favorite..and mine also! I I like to make wreaths, home made soaps, baskets and just started sewing with a new Singer Industrial machine I bought myself! I consider myself a MIXED MEDIA ARTIST..LOVE IT! Love to experiment with different mediums, paint, gesso, feathers, mika flakes, ironing fibers and stamping, sewing on papers/cards..canvas art ..and trying everything new!

Comment: Hi Elena, Thank you so much for the happy mail! Such a huge amount of green things (and purple, my second favorite color!). That was so generous of you to send more than the required envie, and certainly way more than 10 items. My 7-year-old daughter is slowly stealing items away from me. ;) Thanks again!
