I'm a 30-something quilter, watercolor painter, and jewelry maker. I'm a fourth generation quilter and have been making modern macrame jewelry for over 20 years.
Friends, family, and people who purchase my work have told me my signature is the use of bold colors, unusual color combinations that I somehow manage to make them work together, and make everything visually balanced. Colors and bold prints are a lot of fun as well as a good challenge. I love seeing bright colors, bold combinations, and prints/designs that are visually loud.
I love flowers, hummingbirds, peacocks, volcanoes, water, lightning/storms, outer space, kangaroos, clouded leopards, snow leopards, snakes, cats (domestic, wild, big, small), science, rain forests, ocean, and deserts, just to name a few. I also love learning and watch a lot of documentaries. Learning new cultures, beliefs, animals, environments, and so many other things makes me really happy. You never learn too much, and sometimes random trivial information helps "break the ice". I use my knowledge of random things to help me talk to people.
I'm not particularly social, but I do love writing and blogging. These are the best ways for me to me to communicate with words. Ways I don't communicate with words is through my artwork and crafts. Not everyone who sees what I make will understand what I'm sharing, but nearly everyone who sees it has an appreciation for it. I spend weeks making some of my quilts, several days on my paintings, and many hours on my jewelry. I sell nearly everything I make, and I sell it internationally. Art is a great way to communicate with people of other cultures. They may see and understand the work differently than I do, and it's always interesting seeing/hearing what they have to say about it.
My favorite video game is Dragon Age (all the games), and I have all the novels/books, comic books, game guides, and magazines that talk about the game. I also play The Witcher 3, Final Fantasy XV, and other RPGS.
I read a lot. Dune, Harry Potter, The Casting, Age of Misrule, and A Court of Thorns and Roses are some of my favorite book series, but I have a long list of others I love. I can talk about books all day. Many of my books have had to be replaced because I read them so often.
Many people collect things. I collect fairies. The more unique the better, even the weird/odd looking ones. I have big and small fairies decorating my sewing room, and my husband has set a few of my fairies up around the house.
Please don't send Christian religious/holiday cards. I'm not a Christian and have had very bad experiences regarding Christianity.
