I have been creating art and crafts all of my life. After trying just about every medium, I have now settled on mixed media. This way I can combine techniques and materials. I love textures and natural materials, nature, color and design. My focus since moving to Kentucky a few years ago is Folk Art, both primitive and/or abstract. I have been doing gourd art for 12 years beause of the challenge it presents. Each gourd is different. You have to work in many dimensions. I have to feel a gourd before I can begin to change it. And now I have just gone back to collage/painting mixed media art. Maybe I can bring some of the things I learn when working with gourds into collage. I like to mix it up.
I have opened a new shop on etsy for vintage and supplies, Annies Attic Finds. Please check it out.
