Hi! I’m a mixed-media and lettering artist based in Atlanta. I used to be a professional calligrapher, and letterforms often still appear in my mixed-media work. I’m mostly active in the Mixed-Media Artists group here on Swap-bot.
Besides art, I love:
Perfume (my collection is too big...)
Cooking seasonally with ingredients sourced from our local farmers
Playing the harp (former professional touring and recording musician)
Tennis Channel, baby!
I love making books and art journals, and have several types that I’m working on. If interested you can check these out on my Insta (link above).
The gelli plate is a favorite...I seem to have amassed infinite bottles/tubes of paint as a result, and countless stencils and printing accoutrements. Help!
I also have a vast rubber stamp collection and tend to forget what I own. :/
I have a Vagabond die-cutting machine (had a swap partner interested to know this, because she likes to send "extra" dies to her partners! Wow--so generous!).
Some labels for things I tend to like, art stylewise:
Tim Holtz style
On Swap-bot, I primarily make journally stuff and ATCs, especially with mixed media, stamping, collage, and hand-drawn or -lettered elements. I love doing jams with fellow artists on here and being stretched artistically in different directions as a result!
I love the layers and patterns of mixed-media work—there can be so much to look at, even on a little ATC.
History and historical themes are really appealing to me. So is vintage lettering/calligraphy.
The quirky and the weird are more intriguing to me than the straight-up pretty..., especially pieces that seem to say something.
I'm not really huge on cute/adorable things or cartoons. Not pious-religious themes and styles either (though I do like historical references to religion, e.g. Renaissance). I don't tend to go for really saccharine-sweet vintage stuff.
I fear clowns (AAAAAAaaahhhh!) and dislike circus themes. :( Apologies if you’re a Big Top fan!
Don't need any planner stuff since I use a digital planner. Thanks, though!
