Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I am a fifty-something self taught artist who loves to try out all kinds of mediums and styles. I know so many artists like to stick to one type, but I think it can be lots of fun to try out new things.
My background isn’t actually all that artistic – I spent most of my working life in accounting and tourism – but art has always been a part of my life. Not only do I paint and collage, I’ve also been known to knit, crochet, build papier mache goodies and generally just make a mess.
I have actually had some of my work published – several CD covers ,book inserts and private commissions as well as selling print on demand cards and posters. My other interests include travel, writing, gardening, fashion history, numerology, researching family history, reading and wine to name a few. Not all at once of course. I also self published a little book for my 50th Birthday as a treat!
While having a blog is not new, having a wordpress blog is – so I imported some of my old blog posts to get started. I may edit them over time just for presentation. I hope you enjoy my blog and feel free to comment, contact me, or send me a link to your own blog.
