Here is a sampling of some of the mixed media art I do when not sewing. These include heartfelt memories, struggles with technique, and experimental pages. I generally concentrate on texture and neutrals but you can see I played with some color in a few places. Much of the work includes material recycled from previous drawings, collages, and garments.
