Who are your favorite artists, well-known or otherwise?

My mother, emelengy here on and Martha in person. Also Sark, Traci Bautista, Karen Michel, Lani Kent, and anyone who uses color in a moving way.

What other small-scale art projects (if any) appeal to you? Greeting cards, postcards, altered books, boxes, 4 x 4s...?

Altered books, shrines, jewelry, small canvases. Really not into inchies or greeting cards. I can be interested in postcards and 4x4s, but it takes the right project.

Why ATCs? What's the attraction?

It's easier to take the no-fear approach to art. Smaller formats make it easier to just let go and play. I also find that the trading aspect encourage play - if I don't like how it came out some one probably will and I don't have to see it again. :)

What's your motto or favorite saying?

"Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars." Les Brown

What are your favorite places on earth?

The Diesel Cafe in Davis Square in Somerville MA, Epcot Center (in Disney World), The DeCordova Museum And Sculpture Park in Lincoln MA, and my apartment


I've been creating all manner of artwork since I was a small child.

What Betsi is saying about this Meetup Group

This Meetup is so amazing, there's a wonderful sense of camaraderie and creativity flowing through the air when we get together. I always come away from these exhausted but energized, and anxious to make art and try new things I've learned or acquired.
