Lucky me to retire to N.Myrtle Beach, SC. Love it! ... I remember as a little girl in Calif. "making paper" with my mom in the back yard. Such fun. Such a mess. That's what started a free spirit of creating art for me. I love all fabrics, textures,sewing,painting, colors,rocks, shells, you name it. You can't go wrong if you are lost in your work. Wildlife and nature are an every day part of my life. I find many treasures to add to mixed media projects while walking. "Findings" others just pass by make me reach high or low to own it. My mind swirls with imagined projects and I am happy as a Lark. So, recycling has a purposeful meaning to me.The avatar above is my buddy, Jazz, a reject Papillion. A great respect and love of animals...their beauty and gift to humanity...is a part of my being. I am not a professional. I am always learning. If you relate to any of the above email me.
