'Art condenses the experience we all have as human beings, and, by forming it, makes it significant. We all have an in-built need for harmony and the structures that create harmony. Basically, art is an affirmation of life.' Trevor Bell
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.
It has been a rainy, cold weekend. I love it becasue I got to get off the hampster wheel for a few days!
I fooled around with my new digital camera and have a lot to learn. I got my old one in 1996, and I tell you, they sure have made a lot of progress with the image quality.
Here are some of the completed earrings I have made with the tissue paper collage process. Now that I understand how the process works, I am going to make more. I am now in search of decorative tissue and handmade papers to use next time around.
Also, I thought I would post a few new photos. Enjoy.
