Note from shop owner I'm in the process of selling my house and buying a new one, so I won't have my shop items available until I'm settled. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

About

Fun with mixed media and fine art

I have a lot of fun creating and I think it shows in my work; I do what I love.

Experimenting with new materials and new techniques is my passion. When I hear or read about a new technique I have to have patience to find the time to try it. Once I do, I have a lot of fun not just following the instructions, but trying all kinds of different ways or materials it can be combined with, making it completely unique.

I like to recycle and use a lot of the papers I created during those experiments. I also love using used tea bags, worn out clothes, used drier sheets, twigs, leaves, tree bark, old or misprinted photos, etc. I love to find beautiful ways to use these materials and add interest and texture to a piece.

Another of my passions is hand carved blocks. Coming up with the design is half the fun, carving it and seeing the picture emerge is exciting, and playing with the print once it is finished, is absolutely great! I love to use the same image in may different ways, with many different materials, giving it completely different looks. It pushes my creativity and I love it.

I'm very thrilled when someone likes my art enough to purchase it. As each sale is special, I try to package all my orders with care, wrapping them nicely when appropriate, and including a personal thank you note. I would like each customer to be thrilled, not only with the item or items she/he purchased, but also with the way it was presented to them.
