About Me

Hello, After 2 years of working on it, I'm so happy it's out there in the world. Above is the link to "Art Journal Your Archetypes." I have a variety of interesting jobs - archetype consultant, workshop facilitator, and mixed media artist. I'm a mama too. I love abstract art, found art, art from natural items, and upcycled art. I'm not into scrapbooking but do a little smash booking.

My M.A. is in expressive arts therapy.

Favorite Movies

I dig indie movies and comedies.
Lars and the Real Girl, Eternal Sunshine on the Spotless Mind, Harold and Maude, Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance and all Wes Anderson movies such as Darjeeling Limitied and Royal Tenenbaums. I also like Hal Hartley's movies.

Favorite Crafts

I do all kinds of art-making: art journaling, ATCs, paper art, mail art, knit, paint, draw, felt, needle felt, upcycled art, assemblage, and mixed media.

Please don't send

Please do no send: Perfume or scented lotions, anything religious or with angels, candy (but chocolate is ok, especially dark chocolate),

I have loads of these so don't need any more: -used postage stamps -English dictionary pages

I'm not a zentangle fan.

Favorite Music

The xx, Wilco, Voxtrot, Sleigh Bells, M.I.A., Beastie Boys, She & Him, The National, Arcade Fire, Best Coast, Adele, The Ramones, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Cat Power, Edith Piaf, to name a few.
