I am always doing something – day job, taxes, writing … and arts. I have arts the way most people have cats … too many and everywhere in the house. My bookshelves, boxes, chairs, and tables are filled with UFOs (unfinished objects). Sometime, through no fault of my own procrastination and discovery of a new shiny project, I manage to complete something. I thought I would share a bit about my biggest art loves:

Embroidery – Number One Art Love; beware stray needles and pins when visiting my house. (Blog post scheduled for May 31st, 2016 at which point the embroidery link will start working.)

Gardening РHave to do something that gets me up and moving. High school removed any desire to go to a gym, so I made sure I got a house with a big yard to get some time away from my computer.

Calligraphy & Illumination – I love words and letters. Calligraphy allows me to explore them as an art outside of the science of writing.

Mosaics – Mosaic tile work is a new art form discovered in 2015. Like embroidery, only with stone!
