under construction . . . .
I started doing mail-art and swaps in 2008, mainly black pen and color marker ATCs until I joined Swap-bot 3 1/2 years ago and ventured into other forms of mail-art (postcards, zines) and other sorts of image types, like multi-media, rubber stamping, and collage. Here is a list of some of the kinds of art I make:
DRAWING - black pens like Micron, black brush pen, color markers, colored pencils
ABSTRACT - most of my work is abstract. Wikipedia says "Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world." I love geometric abstract most of all.
CONSTRUCTIONS - (cardstock or thin cardboard) of geometric solids, boxes, small chests-of-drawers, etc.
STAMP CARVING - I love making my own stamps. I started doing it because I can't afford to buy them, and I now have a very large collection which grows every month. I need to seriously think about stamp storage other than tossing them in a plastic bin.
PAPER COLLAGE - I love paper collage! I collect and use images, words and phrases, textures, color, and all kinds of bits from junk mail, magazines and books.
ZINES/SMALL BOOKS - I don't do as much of this as I would like, but I could get serious about it and do more.
QUILLING (paper rolling) - Sometimes . . . .
PAINTING - acrylic, watercolor, gouache . . . not as much as I'd like to do
DIGITAL/COMPUTER - some digital collage, computer art, page design, etc.
LIKES - - - -
Dislikes - - - -
ALL that is mean, horrifying, misogynistic, insensitive, thoughtless, narrow minded, bigoted, maliciously deceptive, and grotesque (notwithstanding Equisite Corpse).
