I am a self taught Mixed Media artist living the small-town lifestyle. My family is the only thing I love more than creating. I have designed and taught mixed media art, altered arts, papercrafts, and card making in an independently owned store and have had several of my original designs published. While teaching, I picked up a lot of tips and tricks from my students, some of which I hope to share here. One of my favorite ways to express my creative spirit is through photography. Using my camera, I attempt to capture the beauty that surrounds me. I absolutely love, love, love the Abandoned Art movement and frequently abandon art in my community. I hope you enjoy my original designs and photographs.
