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 join the fun!

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 these fun projects, 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.

vintage and antique children's illustrated books - 1930's, 40's, 50's, and i adore illustrations from the 1890's.

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 keep drawing and/or painting in my journal, as often as i can.

i love all sorts of paper .. backgrounds are always appreciated.

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

wish list

vintage or antique ephemera/ marbled paper/gelli prints/ french/paris vintage paper anything advertising from magazines or mail from other countries/ vintage illustrations/ vintage/antique architectural elements: doors, windows, corbels

Oh my gosh! How did that get to you so fast?!? I'm very happy the bomb contained some things you like! I think my SIL found the rabbit in her mother's collection of ancient things. The postage cancellations were from my BFF's stash. Her mom had been saving postage since the 1930s. I had fun rifling through my supplies looking for things you might be able to use. Thanks for letting me know it arrived. :-) Have fun and happy swapping!

Love your romantic/classical take on the Manly Mahup Zine... plus, a sun face always wins in my book! Thanks, Marlies!

ChrisAnne on Apr 26, 2021:

Thank you for the art tag RAK (OMAE) I like the pink/orange combo. It totally fits my mood this week!
I'm sure Nevada was a huge change from NC! We should be getting that green-ery soon, but for now it's wintery gray.
