My New Blog

I'm starting this blog for my own personal thoughts, art & news.
I really miss being around other artful souls on a regular basis, as my life has gone to the dogs so to speak:)
But I am trying to restore some balance and even though I am not there yet, I am actively working on this issue.
This is one of my new classes for "2007"
"Profound Secrets of the Burnt & Bound"
The images used here are from Michael deMeng's new stamp collection but the techniques used can be applied to any other imagery. You can view the whole collection at Stampers Anonymous.
I will be teaching this class at The Stamp Act in Marshfield, Mass., Art Unraveled in Phoenix, Arizona, The Artists Nook in Fort Collins, Colorado and I have more to be scheduled.
Here are some of the samples:



I have so many things I 'm currently working on, between kibble, caretaking and treats:)
Classes that I will be teaching in Cortona, Italy next year in September, another ATC Book, magazine articles, new website, catching up on paperwork, loading an e-bay auction and already I have over 500 orders for Christmas ornaments.. (((eeek!!!)))

So needless to say, this seems to be the only means of communication that I have these days to stop for a moment and let my friends know what I'm up to..
I miss chatting with so many of you on a weekly basis, one of these days things will slow down:)

Hi

I read about you in an article in CRAFTWISE Magazine, who did a course with you in Australia. I was so impressed by what they had to say that I looked you up online and I am just so taken with your art. You are incredibly gifted and I am loving everything you do. I love vivid colours and blends and swirls and your stuff is totally up my loving-it street.
