I live in a beautiful corner of southwest Virginia, near the town of Floyd. It’s an amazing place to live, filled with artists, potters, musicians and joy. I play in the art supplies at every opportunity and I love just about everything: mixed media collage, painting, making jewelry, taking lots of photos, and every so often making art quilts. Most recent love is the Gelli plate. Beauty is everywhere in the Floyd County countryside, a source of constant inspiration. I take pictures continuously with a camera of some kind always close at hand. My intention with this blog is to document whatever it is I am working on, to better understand my own process. The good, the bad and even the ugly. My purpose is to make my art pay its way. I am at the very beginning stage of this.
