About me

Gender Female
Location Outside of Portland, Oregon, United States
Introduction I create artsy, collagey, papery things. I have recently returned to my hometown of Portland, OR after a 10 year sojourn to New Orleans. My greatest influences are Harold and the Purple Crayon, Mary Jo McGraw, Louisiana Folk Artists and Hot Tamales candies. Although I have no formal training, I do have a strong belief that creativity is accessible to all who try and that creating art can heal the soul. During the day I am a licensed clinical social worker and by night an instructor in paper arts. I am currently teaching altered book techniques, rubber stamping and paper art techniques. Future plans - to turn an RV into a rolling art studio and call it an ArtV.
