I specialize in creativity and mixed media art through thrifting, up-cycling, re-purposing and new design. I have had the privilege of being published in several Stampington Publications, and am a contributor to Seth Apter’s newest Mixed Media book, “The Mixed-Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from Over 40 Amazing Artists” slated to be published later this year. I am the owner of A Year in the Life of an Art Journal and Monday Mugshots! I am: Thrift junkie. Free Spirit. Believer. Artist. Photographer. Mom to boys. Rust Lover. Worm Farmer. Blogger. Creative Soul. Rule Bender. Spider Saver. Coffee Drinker. Cream Lover. Chook Farmer. Goat Milker. Sailor Mouth. Music Listener. Phone Talker. Garden Grower. Beek. Mess Maker. Risk Taker. Chewy Mom. Gritty Gramma. Good Intender.
What I wanted to be when I grew up has changed a few times. I wanted to be an Artist. I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I wanted to be a Forensic's Detective. I wanted to be an Attorney, I wanted to be a Beautician... I've wanted to be a lot of things!
In art: Old, rusty, crusty, vintage and unique.
In life: People that make a difference to just one other soul.
I don't really have a bucket list, per say... but I am adventurous eater, and I REALLY want to have tried Squirrel, Alligator and Opossum.
I have some metal frames that I really want to mold, but they are really big. It would take SO MUCH Amazing Mold Putty... so for now, I have to be happy with just bits of it.
