Industry Arts
Occupation Arteest
Location El Paso, Texas, United States
Introduction I'm a mixed media artist with a talent for making people laugh or gasp!I have 3 kids, boy, girl, boy and 4 grandchildren, boy, boy, boy and boy along with many step-children and grandchildren. I love my husband galore as well as my family and friends. I love my life and my art and I consider myself to be one very lucky lady. Lately, I've gone into the doll bidness. My dolls are funny, whimsical and some are very dark and macabre, but aren't we all just a little off? As that crazy dude who almost starved to death in his little cabin at Walden's Pond said, "Simplify, simplify, simplify."
Interests My crazy family, including friends and some strangers, books, books and more books, mixed media work, muerto art, folk art, painting on just about anything, clay work such as colourful pottery, non-functioning tea pots, really cool, crazy jewelry, music and many more.
Favorite Movies The Man Who Would Be King, Auntie Mame, A Place In Time, Time Bandits, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, The History of the World I & II, The Women (the old version which was by far better, but liked the ending of the new version was more realistic for today's woman), anything with zombies and vampires and things that go bump in the night.
Favorite Music Classical, New Age, Beatles, Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares, Old show tunes, Gregorian chants, the 60's rock, early 70's rock, nothing listed under the 80's which I consider the black hole of rock'n roll, resume to the 90's, some good stuff, 21st century, lots of good stuff.
Favorite Books The Red Tent, The Year of Magical Thinking, The Pillars of the Earth, The Hours, anything by Shil Silvertein, The Bluest Eye, Poetry by Frederico Garcia Lorca & Pablo Neruda, Atlas Wept, love Joseph Campbell, and many, many more.
