I dabbled in the realm of abstract art briefly before I discovered my niche in a mixed media approach. Inspired by other artist's "she art" and my love of scrapbook papers. I started looking at some of those old abstracts as just the inital background just waiting to explore an era from the past.I still loved the blues contrasting with the mottled golden drips that I had achieved but when I began to add the black and silver pattern paper with vintage ephemera it seemed more grounded. The glamerous 20's inspired women, drapped in teal diamond dust and crystals painted using Faber-Castell India ink artist markers, finishes the piece. Making her..."Absolutely Kissable"
While getting organize for my first art show last spring, I quickly ordered online twenty 5 x 7 mat sets so that I could sell prints of my work. Much to my surprise, when they arrived they were actually 5 x 7 frames with ACEO openings about 2" by 3" meant for macro photography. Well, sending them back was a hassle and costly. I threw them aside in my studio. While printing some images, that were small, I realized that I could create little card-like art. I have sold a few immediately during the next art show and have worked my way through half of my stash!
