I am living proof that it is never too late to start. Days before I turned 50 I created my first art piece. Now I am teaching mixed media internationally in Mexico, Australia, New Zealand; and this is just the beginning!
I teach 2 classes a week in Benicia, California. Re-Covering Your ArtFull Self, an altered book class and The Art of Letting Go, a mixed media class.
I’m not sure when I started teaching, maybe 2005. It became important for me to spread the news that ‘if I could do it, anyone could’.
My specialty is creating collages, mixed media pieces and altering books with minimal supplies, using what we have, and creating amazing artwork with bits and pieces of this and that; oh, and layering. I consider myself the Queen of Layering.
I have over 16,000 subscribers on YouTube and you will find people all over the world coining the phrase ‘put on your underpants’, referring to the first layer of the collages.
I love to share my inspiration with others. I love playing with others. I love creating art, but most of all I love watching ‘artists’ grow, become brave and confident enough to share their art with others.
Life is an experiment AND an adventure really. And I am loving life!
