Just to explain the nickname - it comes from my job - see below :) I'm not psycho or a diva - I promise
I have been doing art and craft 'stuff' for years and particularly love collaborative art. I mainly do junk-art incorporating found objects, collages, altered objects and I adore paper bag books and art journals or all sorts. I also do an awful lot of sewing, embroidery, art quilts, appliqué and all sorts of fabric stuff. I have put a few examples on my newly-resurrected blog (I dusted it off just for this site :) ) I hope to find my photos of the art I have done over the years and add some of it but would rather put new stuff up there.
I also do a lot of photography and there will be loads of pictures going on the blog. I Geocache, hike up mountains and bike or raft down them when I can and I've just joined the WI! I'm an avid Tweeter and can be found under the name I have here if anyone is interested but beware if you do :)
Now for the name- I work full time- and more- as a Specialist Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nurse and art is my way of relaxing from a physically and emotionally demanding job - I sometimes don't have the time to chat or post on line and what time I do have I spend doing the art I love.
Thank you again for letting me join- while I'm at it- any postcard swaps going lol- I love making my own postcards!!!
OK Realised I need to put a few photos up of recent work- so here we go- not many as I often forget to take photos of things i have sent off :(
The first three are of a piece I did in response to something i saw in Craft Stamper last month :
This next is a piece I made weaving strips of sari fabric together- I ended up making a book cover out of it
These next three are from my art journal
