I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums: pattern papers, rubber stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, and altered items. A never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio making art and listening to music.
I started creating in mixed media in the spring of 2006, and was instantly intrigued. I consider myself an “old soul” and many of my pieces use remnants from the past…antique lace, old cabinet photos, metal findings, buttons, and whatever tugs at my heartstrings while creating. I definitely was born in the wrong era…although I wouldn’t give up my pair of blue jeans or computer for the world!
I started submitting to magazines and was thrilled to start down the path of becoming a published artist. I have found that creating art heals the soul and touches the lives of people who it surrounds. I have been blessed profusely by so many since I spread my wings and took this creative road.
In July 2014, I suffered a brain stem (pons) stroke which has limited my creations, but I am still able to use my hand and so grateful for this. My recovery and Physical therapy continues and I now realize this is my new normal.
Please enjoy your visit here and take the time to look through the galleries and publication. I hope you find some eye candy that will make your own soul happy as it did mine while creating it.
