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 trade for August theme is "Opposites". I found some swatches of silk at my favorite creative reuse store and instead of eating them up, I chose to construct the ATCs with the pieces as complementary color wheel opposites. I used deep red and green and blue and orange. All eight cards I did had abstract designs on them. I have only one to show as I mailed out the cards, then attempted to download the photos I took from my camera. Unfortunately, the memory card got corrupted somehow, and the disk ended up being trashed. Of course I lost the photos I took. Anyway, you get the idea.
