Mixed Media Artist

About Me

San Leandro, California
I am a mostly retired Nurse who works enough to pay for a studio and art supplies. I have been making art all my life, with no formal degree-type training, beginning with sewing at an early age. I discovered the JOY of quilting when I realized how much I liked breaking rules and telling stories. Workshops in surface design and art quilting, mentoring and encouragement from quilt artists, discovering the magic of assemblage with found objects, has landed me right in the middle of a mixed media world of art. I have been making my art and keeping it mostly to myself, giving it away only when I felt it was safe to do so. Finally, I was convinced that in order to grow artistically, I had to open up my art world for others to see, to like or not, but to see. Please take a look. Any comments, suggestions are welcome.

I will be participating in Collage Mania 2009 , which raises funds for the American Cancer Society through Fiber Art for a Cause, by auctioning off collages donated by artists from around the world. Organized by Virginia Spiegel, Collage Mania 2008 raised $13,000. The goal this year is $20, 000. The collages above and below will be available for purchase through Virginia's website beginning May 5, 2009. They are all approximately 5"x7" and will be mounted on an 8"x 10 " mat, suitable for framing.

  2. Carol, Your work is an inspiration. Your approach is unique and has certainly brought out some thoughtful, quirky, loving concepts.
