About Me

A creative soul in my late 40's with always something creative on the go. I've always loved paper and all the wonderful things one can do with it. I enjoy spending time with other creatives and inspiring one another. I love a good story told by anyone who's passionate about it. I have an affinity for noticing things others do not. I am always up for adventure and exploring near and far. I like freshly ground coffee with cream. Time in the outdoors inspires peace and rightness in me and I find myself drawn to imagery that depicts the moon phases, night sky and beyond. I also enjoy wabi-sabi concept, Art Nouveau, vintage trailers, mid century décor, fashion, postage stamps, quartz/stones, soup making, Hellboy stories and a myriad of other things like McCoy pottery and Fiesta wear (I collect turquoise and tangerine) I have a cruiser bicycle I've named Euphemia after a Canadian artist and 4X4 named Angus from Brave.

I prefer postcards sent the old fashioned way, on their own, written upon, exposed to the journey of snail mail. Let all the hands that it finds in its travels guide it to it's intended.

We are all brave and daring souls here, sharing our art and glimpses into our selves.

Kindness means everything.

My Art

My art is always evolving but it pretty much always involves paper. I make a lot of ATC's and enjoy the smaller format. I really enjoy mixed media. Usually in the form of stencils and gel medium and layering paper and mark making with assorted implements. I use these created elements in my projects.

Favorite Movies

Often I have a movie on in the background as I create. I have watched Encanto at least 8 times already... Adventures, Fantasy and animation are my favourites.

Favorite Television

Arcane, The Witcher, Enola Holmes.

Favorite Music

Indie but not exclusively. London Grammar, Ane Brun, Rebekka Karijord, Nikki and the Dove, Sia, Lykke Li, Bowie, Bishop Briggs, Chromatics, Feist, Lorde, Lana Del Ray. Rarely anyone I talk about my favourite music with knows what groups I'm referring to but I don't mind :)

Interests

I enjoy learning and experiencing cultures and traditions. I especially love crafts from around the world and crafting items from different locales. I like vintage things that are neat and unique and hearing about the stories that they may have. I believe crafting is universally bonding and partake in it because I feel it connects us more profoundly then we realize.

Favorite Books

Books were my escape while growing up and still are now. Adventure/Fantasy/SciFi. I love books about the "story behind the story" Everything by V.S. Schwabb. Emily Bronte and Fables. Flavia de Luce series, Rebel Girls. Pretty much everything by Neil Gaiman. I'd be interested in doing a series of ATC's inspired by books, let me know if you might be as well :)

Comment: First off, thank you for the extra (and beautiful) ATC + the long note detailing your work on the booklet. I can’t help but fall in love with the soft colours you use, along with these pops of brighter ones than make the whole thing come alive. It’s really nice how you went and displayed techniques on every page, without always adding embellishments to burden them : allowing every little thing to speak for itself. It gives out such beautiful textures to discover every time I flip through the book. The embellishments you’ve created and used are balancing the whole piece so well too. The master board cover is awesome, both the more vivid outside and the subdued inside. It’s always such a pleasure to receive your artwork, thank you again and again. ❤️

Comment: Wow! What a fantastic variety. As I looked at each one I was thinking "This will be such a cool background" or "I'm going to use this part as a focal element." You did indeed inspire me! Thank you sooo much!
Response: You make me smile knowing that I managed to inspire you with napkins! Thank you for the kind words and heart.

Comment: GORGEOUS ATCs!! I can't believe I get to add them to my collection. The titles reminded me of poetry somehow. Will a contemporary poet use your art and create poetry? I would very much like to see that. Thank you for this thoughtful swap. Happy swapping!
Response: So glad you like them! Thank you for you extra kind words and rating :)
