Profile Information

This is me.....

I am basically self-taught, except for the things my mom showed me how to do when I was young.  I have always loved playing around with collage, paint, a jigsaw occasionally (freaked my dad out when I did this) and leaning new techniques.  Art is more therapy for me than anything else.  It soothes my soul and makes me forget about pains and problems for hours on end.  I'm on an extreme remedial level when it comes to sketching and painting but I'm trying to learn.  My main love artwise is making collages and mixed media work and jewelry making.  But let an idea pop into my head and I will try it.  Sometime however what is jumping around in my head and what comes out in my hands is two very different things. I have one friend here that I get together with and have art days occasionally.  I would love to have more.  But my very best art buddy is my 5 yr old grandson Tyler.  We do all sorts of things together and he has his own drawers of materials here at my house although he is free to use anything that isn't hazardous to him.  He has a 9 month old brother that will be allowed to express himself artistically here too when he's ready.  Some of my favorite words - rusty, torn, tattered, weathered, peeling, chipping - elements I look for to incorporate into my pieces along with any treasures nature may provide.
