bye bye birds...

I am so thankful my Birdscapes have had the chance to grace the cover of the April May issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. The last three years I have had the chance to immerse myself in creating and making art, after years of "not" because I was teaching and running around when i wasn't working ,making sure everyone warm and fed and where they were suppose to be except me, because really what i should have been doing( at least part of the time) was making art, but as you know life gets busy and crazy...i went to art school (which i loved) but i always thought....i am not dark and brooding enough for this lifestyle (not that there is anything wrong with dark and brooding)  at times i love dark and brooding! but i always wanted to create using odd bits and pieces of life, i wanted to stick wire and plaster on canvas and glue funky little metal pieces on canvas, and scribble words on canvas....until i picked up my first copy of CPS i never knew there was a word for that art....mixed media...thankfully i found this style and it found me because i have been creating ever since...i do not have a walk in closet but i do have a kick ass art studio now, which i am in every week! so paint,drip ,stitch,scribble, stamp and plaster to your hearts content !
