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.

The Arts in the Cards color prompt for July is "Confetti". I have an amazing collection of confetti: all kinds of themes and colors, lots of sparkle.  Several attempts at cards that were prompted by this kind of confetti didn't work for me.  The kind of confetti that evokes a feeling of celebration for me is the old fashioned kind:  pastel-colored pieces of tissue that float on air.  My confetti is in the form of origami butterflies that get to fly around.
