Sparking and Savoring the Artful Life


it’s a nice thing to be in Somerset Workshop!

yehaaaa! the cover!

Hello hello!!  If you are interested in reading about mixed media techniques, Somerset WORKSHOP is a great publication. Four times a year they present four artists and concentrate on several projects from each. I am happy to be on the cover of the 2012 Autumn issue and I am thrilled to be joined by fellow artists Mary Beth Shaw, Cynthia Shaffer, and Sarah Ahearn Bellemare.

here is a peek inside the current issue of Somerset WORKSHOP

My projects range from a collection of fun hand painted jars to larger and layered collages. I share my favorite collage techniques and my tips on washes of acrylic for aging, types of glueing and good ways to present a finish. It has always amazed me how many different ways artists go about their work. Don’t you love being behind the scenes? I like seeing other’s artistic approach things, and I love that there is not just one “right” way to go. The most important thing is that we keep on learning, growing and having fun! Cause we love fun!

with LOVe,
