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.

ATC theme for this month is "Balance", something I have been trying to achieve all my life but never quite make it. I dug up my favorite thermofax screen, bicycle guy, and painted him on pieces of painted and screened fabric. Kind of simple, but isn't that what balance is about? On the back of the card is a quote from Albert Einstein: "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving"
