Good day art friends, I began doing paper crafting about 18 years ago when it was all the rage. I began doing scrapbooking pages for my children's memories, leading to card making, Stampin Up and a true addiction to ATC's. I love mixed media, collage, rolos, inchies,twinchies and anything to get my fingers sticky and dirty. I belong to a few swap groups.
I have been married 31 years, we have 2 adult children. My daughter is married to a wonderful man, they both thankfully live nearby and both of them work in the city of Chicago. My son is a former Special Operation Marine USMC Raider, he is now attending college at UNC Wilmington, NC. and plans to graduate in May 2021.
I am an Information Technician working with the Barrington School District , Barrington, Illinois. I try to incorporate creativity into my work day if it is at all possible. My husband is an architectural woodworker and is gifted with a lathe. He creates remarkable pieces.
I am also a watercolor artist. I belong to 3 Urban Sketching groups Nationally. We paint what we see on location, it is great fun. I love to paint the homes of my friends and present them as gifts.
I love to read books, I read between 40-60 books a year. I'm a big fan of historic fiction, war nonfiction and biographies.
You can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We have a summer place and I'm often there all summer creating swap pieces or watercolor painting.
I have tattoos. One tattoo that I am really proud of is on my top left foot edge, it reads "Una Vita Artistica" in Italian (An Artistic Life) so when I am toe tagged the technician will know just how I spent my life, with beautiful colors, creativity and creative people.
My favorite holiday is Halloween, 4th of July is a close second. I love doing swaps with holiday themes.
I enjoy cooking and experimenting with different cooking techniques, and grilling food.
My favorite colors are green, teal and red. I incorporate a lot of pin up gals in my work, gosh I hope that is vintage. I love lots and lots of color and detail, I don't know when to stop, you will see my layers upon layers when we swap. If you see leaves on the artwork, it is most likely mine.
Thank you for reading all this info. It is nice to get to know each other. Salute.
