My very talented friend Michelle and I decieded to do a swap. She picked a theme and so did I. We went with "Vintage Children" and "Steampunk". These are the ATC's I created. Explore is the title for the first one, I got the image from the Magic Moonlight Images website. I can't tell you the papers because they are bits and pieces from a scrap pile! For my Steampunk beauty. The gears are Tim Holtz and paper is Bo Bunny and the image again is from Magic Moonlight Images. That has to be my most favorite site to go to for inspiration and that special photo that I need to find.
I was born and raised in southern Michigan. I'm blessed with three children, two boys and a girl that range in age from 22-30. I've been married to a wonderful man for the last 24 years. He's been very supportive of my art and has always encourged my artistic pursuits. Even though I have a fine arts degree I still consider myself largely a self taught mixed media artist. Inspiration for my art comes from many different places. Old family photos, my children, pets, and especially our garden, it's a passion that both Thom and I share.
