I'm an artist. I dabble in various art forms (embroidery, mixed media, collage, creative writing, photography) but i mainly work with fibres now. I currently create stitched postcards, hand-embroidered jewelry & buttons, and miniature needle-felted dollies. (I made the one posted as my avatar above). Art is my passion! I'm a former member of the Embroidery Association of Canada, of my local Embroidery Guild, and the former program co-ordinater of our local Fibre Arts Guild.
During the summer and autumn i work on a farm, harvesting and preparing garlic for market. During the year, i work as a housekeeper for the elderly. I spend the rest of my free time developing my craft. I'm also a part-time house-sitter/dog-sitter. I'm a quirky, freckled, vegetarian health-nut, and frequently shave/donate my long red locks to those in need.
In my spare time i enjoy walking/hiking, snowshoeing, biking, birding, reading, writing stories, music, puzzles/boardgames, browsing etsy.com, films (especially claymation/stop-motion shorts), and The Walking Dead. I love watermelon, mint tea, flannel pillowcases, ladybugs, dogs, nature/wildlife, hot-air balloons, moody music, theatre, comedy, clowns/mimes, marionettes/puppets, Garfield comics, vibrant colors, unique chair designs, travelling, the ocean, beach combing, and finding treasures at a yard sale or thrift store. I also seem to collect art, antique photos/postcards, images of characters with red hair, bones/skulls, heart-shaped rocks, sand from places i travel to, mementos of the past, and anything miniature that catches my fancy.
I'm excited to make/send handmade postcards around the world! I'd love to receive anything homemade, but will accept whatever postcard you send. Be creative!! And please register the postcards i send before they expire.
HAPPY 2022! Stay safe.
