Creatively I aspire to find time to play everyday. There are no limitations on what I can create because I believe that there are no rules when it comes to crafting. play with paper, pocket scrapping, altered art, cardmaking, stamping…really I will try anything if inspires me.
The only common threads are the use of color and the act of getting my fingers dirty in the process! I literally like to mix the media!! Layers and layers of inks, paints, stencils and stamps with a sprinkle of something shiny all culminating to create what I like to call ECLECTIC FUNK. If it has layers, lots of color and it was fun to make then that’s where you will find me.
I take this bag of tricks and teach people worldwide to blend art mediums into their established crafts. I think it is a great way to introduce crafters to the world of mixed media. Just build your art one layer at a time. It doesn’t matter what a person’s skill level is or if they are a scrapbooker, card maker, planner junkie or a full on mixed media aficionado. It’s all about “Art EVERYDAY”! I believe if you just break it down, make it fun, provide the tools then anyone can find success in their creativity.
In addition to teaching I write a quarterly article for Scrapbook and Cards Today and I have a mixed media product line debuting with American Crafts.
