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.

December trade: "Trash Talkin the Mailman"
Our challenge this month was to create an ATC using something from all that junk mail we get every day. Imagine my delight when an Archie McPhee catalogue arrived...what could be trashier?
I used zip code pages from my phone book for the background, copies of the missing child logo, Archie McPhee disguises, and bordered the cards with bubble wrap.
