It's Been A While

It's been a while since my last post. I have been home recuperating from yet another surgery and have recently gotten back to my art and my "life". Art Journaling and collaging has been keeping me creative. I will post some new pages shortly. I have found that making art during these past few months has helped me heal not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. I forget about my aches and pains and become absorbed in the process. I have always been a process rather than product kind of gal which has helped me to embrace my new change in direction. I am not able to do the kind of art that I used to but rather than limiting me it has opened new doors and ways of interpreting things. Years ago I heard the expression that ART SAVES LIVES. Yes, it really does...

I've been getting away from collage lately. It seems as if I have been bitten by the mandala bug. I really can't tell you why, just that it has been all enveloping. I love the patterns and it becomes almost like an artful meditation for me. I start off with a template for the center circle and everything else from there just happens freehand. I have been experimenting with different pens and have recently started to add the white details to the drawings. I know that this is all a progressive exercise and have some ideas of where the next step will take me. We'll just have to see I guess...Wishing you love, peace & joy<3

I love to do collages. I find I work without a plan and it just seems to come together. The bottom collage with Frida is a self portrait. Everything depicted has a special meaning to me. For example, the parrot is my sun conure Pinot who really is the king of our house, thus the crown. The Create Art collage was done more recently and acts as a reminder to me to keep doing. I have been on a semi hiatus due to hand surgery on my dominant hand and although I have been working with my other hand it hasn't been the same. My fine motor skills are coming back slowly and I am looking forward to regaining my skills and being able to create much better art again in the future. We'll just have to see what develops. Until next time I wish you peace, love & joy

Just do it!

I am finally doing it. Yes, it's way past overdue. Have been wanting this for a long time. Ok, ok... WELCOME TO MY BLOG! As I am pretty much technologically challenged I have always been extremely envious of those who could manifest these amazing blogs. I really don't know how this will eventually turn out but I will give it my best shot. A bit about me, I'm a multimedia artist. I have worked in jewelry design and creation, been a potter and teacher of the molding of the mud and have painted anything that wasn't tied down (and maybe then some too). Due to some life altering events I am now on to a different form of expression. I have been art journaling, bookmaking (nope, not the gambling kind), collaging and working with fibers. Today I went one step farther and bought a sewing machine. If I can figure out how it works I'm sure that there will be lots of new creative experiences. I am the mom of 2 awesome college students, the birdie "mom" of 2 baby parrots, and an art teacher which keeps us all in human food and bird seed. I hope to share my art, thoughts, creative endeavors and anything else that comes up. Because I don't want to keep going on in my first post about me, me, me I will end this here. Please stop by again to view my photos ( if I can figure how to post those as well) and ramblings. Hopefully, some will make you smile. Until next time-peace , joy & love
