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.

Death by Chocolate

The theme of my Arts in the Card ATC group for January was "Death by Chocolate".
Chocolate and I used have a very close, romantic relationship: warm, exciting, comforting, aphrodisiac .  Then it turned on me and triggered many years of frantic cravings for MORE, which was never enough.  We broke up about 18 months ago, and away went the crazy behavior and emotional damage from this abusive relationship. Not to say I don't miss and crave a bowl of peanut M&Ms next to my sewing machine!


I used multiple stencils on cardstock, stamps, writing and  a transparency image of a brain.
