I am a housewife/artist living in a small (no stoplights) farming/artist community in New Mexico. There must be 20 galleries on our one main road so I often spend the day gathering inspiration there.
I love to make art. I make art out of about anything I can get my hands on. I love painting, collage, altering altoid tins, making jewelry and making art books.
Currently I am crazy about making ATC's. Artist Trading Cards are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 miniature pieces of art. They can be any medium and subject. I trade them at a local in-person group in Albuquerque and through the mail, with other artists around the world. Anyone can contact me for a trade. I love surprise/blind trades or you can pick something at http://www.atcards.com/gallery/browseimages.php?c=121&userid=.
I also collect postcards. I love to trade postcards with people around the world. My postcard box holds about 600 cards from 17 countries starting in the early 1900's.
My favorite things are: *COLORS* earthy yellow, orange, red, gold, bronze *MUSIC* jazz (any), country (old and new), christian, new age *FOOD* Italian, Japanese, Italian, Seafood & Italian *MOVIES* Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, An Affair to Remember *BOOKS* The Horse Whisperer, Anything Thomas Hardy, Poetry
