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 theme for March for our Arts in the Cards  ATC trading group is " Connections" and I thought I would get a little playful.  It brought to mind those "connect the dots" books I used to love as a kid; remember the mimeographed handouts in school?  I love the primitive image it produces and like to duplicate the style in some of my needlework.
Connect the Dots
The background is cut from fabric that I dyed or painted, then silkscreened with two different screens and colors.  I added the beads and connected them with perl cotton thread.
