About Me

i am a retired graphic illustrator and painter - i was introduced to atc's in the 1990's, but waited until 2017 to dive into the game!

at once smitten, i am hooked now. i have always loved to try new mediums, but on a large scale it has always been difficult: before the internet, there was not enough help out there. hello youtube! i absolutely adore finding some new medium, and getting all the help you need on youtube... what a life-saver. i was an art student in the 80s and 90s, and have a pretty broad knowledge of the "classical" arts. the new methods, paints, and all are very exciting to try on a smaller scale!

i have a fair amount of time to devote to this fun hobby, and i consider myself to be very conscientious when it comes to being counted on.

Favorite Books

i have always been a lover of art history books that feature my favorite artists from the renaissance period to the present.

childrens illustrated books

fiction that takes me to faraway places/ nonfiction that teaches me new techniques in art/ poetry from any time period/ english romantic novels/ a good mystery/

i am a lover of fine magazines on art and crafts

Favorite Crafts

i have painted in watercolor and acrylics, pastels, colored pencil, and am trying gouache for the first time.

i love to make and collect collage and mixed media and have kept a few journals over the years which have helped keep me going.

i truly love fine papers : marbled, and watercolor, mostly.

i collect assemblage jewelry, and love the combination of antique papers, and paints.

What a lovely assortment of goodies you sent for the OMAE Nov RAK Attack. I particularly enjoy the text/fabric mash up. Lots of good things in there. Thank you! :)

Thank you so much for the sweet birthday card, Marlies! This weekend is going to be all about making things (I got a gel plate finally) and that always makes for a great birthday...or any occasion, really. ๐Ÿค—

I received the unmounted stamps this weekend. Theyโ€™re all really unique! I should be able to make some cool crafty projects with these. Thank you so much for sharing with me!

I love love love the stamps you sent. Especially the ones that seem to almost be passport/travel type ones. Thank you so much for offering in the swap meet tag!

๐Ÿ’œ What a beautiful surprise! Starting with the packaging, fun wrapping paper and beautiful ribbon. As I opened the paper to reveal the beautiful journal inside it literally gave me goosebumps & tears in my eyes! Ever so gently opening it and finding your tag tucked in front page. This is absolutely gorgeous! I love it. And I appreciate it so very much. As Iโ€™ve been going through things that mom had tucked in drawers here and there & kept tucking things in a folder to keep for myself. I now know this journal will be perfect for those tidbits and jot down little memories of her I have day to day. ๐Ÿ’œ Thank you, youโ€™ve made my day, oh goodness youโ€™ve made my year!!! I wish I could give you a hug!!!๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ’œ

The rubber stamps you sent me from the swap meet are the stamps of my dreams, Marlies! Thank you so much for the great gift. I can't wait to get them mounted - I know they'll get lots of use!
