New Seattle Collage Sheet

I really do love living here in the Pacific NW and I especially love to take photos of Seattle! I decided to create some collage sheets with some of my altered photography. This is my first sheet and it is available as a printed sheet or digital download for $3.50.

Our First Snowfall Of The Season!

I do love it when it snows here in the Pacific NW! Everything brightens up and looks so cheerful, especially when you can be indoors with a big mug of hot chocolate! Here are a few photos from my garden :)

New Collage Sheets

I have started working on some new collage sheets and here are my latest two :) As with all my collage sheets, they are $3 each. You can request them as a digital sheet which will be emailed as a jpeg or I can order them printed which takes a few days. I'm having so much fun putting these together! I'll post samples of work soon :)

Happy New Year!

I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! I can't believe it's 2012 already, where on earth does the time go??

I remember moving to the US in February 1996 and certainly did not envision myself still here, but I'm certainly glad I stayed! If Joel and I had moved back to the UK when we planned, I may not be an artist today and now I can't even imagine being anything else! I love teaching what I have learned, seeing what my students and friends create and enjoying seeing the creative side come out of people who swear they are not 'artistic'. It's amazing what one can achieve with a little encouragement, lots of fun materials and a little bit of time. I have always said "You all have a creative side, you just haven't discovered it yet" I really do believe that!

As I move forward into 2012, I do so with a new perspective. I start a new part time job in a couple of days, which will leave me plenty of time to keep creating my art and to allow me to keep teaching. I'm looking forward to my new challenges ahead and also thinking about new classes, demos and art to create. I feel it's going to be a good year and I wish the same for all of you!
