How did you hear about us?

In 2006 I moved to a new area and my husband and I found a gaming group on this site. We played with them until we moved here this year. We made some life-long friends right away.

What would you like to see or gain from this group?

I am a social creator, I like to share my talents, teach others what I know, and find fellowship in a common interest. I also need friends that don't call me wife or mom. Looking over the past meets in this group, I see many different artists coming together over one main idea and sharing unique perspectives. I am curious to find out if the meetings feel as formal as they look, or if there is a lot of back and forth between friends.

What are your artistic goals?

I already create on a daily basis, but I still need to stretch my creative ligaments and increase my talents by doing, sharing, and learning. I love a challenge, too.

Which type of artistic endeavors do you enjoy?

Canvases are expensive, and "fine art" eludes me. I do most of my paint playing in a creative art journal, which means I can do anything I want. Paint, collage, doodle, make my own tools (stamps and stencils, spray inks, painted tape, collage papers, even the journal itself). I also like to occasionally do something else, like quilting, polymer clay, dollhouse miniatures, cross-stitch, altering everyday objects, crochet. Mostly the journaling, but I miss having my sewing machine out and available to use everyday.

Favorite Artist(s) and/or Movements?

Definitely the art journaling movement that is going on right now. Teesha Moore started it all for me there. Bonnie Hunter is my favorite professional quilter. I am inspired by so many artists though, it is hard to narrow it down.

Introduction

I recently moved to Portland and my sewing machine is still packed. I do a lot of art journaling and book-making. I play with mixed media, stamp and stencil carving, quilting, paint, and paper.

What Angel K. is saying about this Meetup Group

Amazing group of talented individuals! I am so inspired, I might just break out of my journals and do something for my wall.
