How did you hear about us?

Random search on meetup. (am using this field as overflow) I had foot surgery in 2007, which kept me bed-bound for 4 months, during which I kinda went stir crazy. I began making ATCs with colored pencils (not mixed media) immediately. I still love them.

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

New friends, sharing. I think it's fair to note that I am mildly handicapped, which means that sometimes long drives make attending meetings difficult. However, once I commit, I do it whole heartedly. Am looking for a diverse, open minded, and friendly group to share art. Am also looking to expand into printmaking, on a very small scale, making bookplates occasionally.

What are your artistic goals?

To grow, always. Have worked into oil pastels on a miniature scale, play with many mediums, and have recently begun work in oils, which I dearly love. I began making ATCs with colored pencils (not mixed media) immediately. I still love them.

Which type of artistic endeavors do you enjoy?

Stained and fused glass, metal clay, jewelry, fine art painting of all kinds and styles in miniature, not usually the human form though. I like all mediums.

Favorite Artist(s) and/or Movements?

Too many to mention.


I've been an artist all my life, but always unsure about it. I taught myself stained glass in 1980, fused glass in 1999, precious metal clay that same year, but painting always eluded me.

What Meran Ni C. is saying about this Meetup Group

Very fun! Very open, accepting, friendly people, all smarter than the average artist ;)
