Signs of Spring

Just a quick post to thank all of you who have already purchased a copy of my autobiographical-artsy book, and to let you know I am working on a second book! Details will be posted soon.
Happy spring in the mean time!

My first book is here!!

I am doing the happy dance! A second and a little bigger edition of my new book is here!
I love these colorful squared books and would be happy to send them away to any one who is interested. The book price is $30.00 + shipping. Inside you will find 70 pages of my colorful mixed media art: from fiber to paper, from printmaking to bookmaking and from collage to assemblage. (Wow, it even rhymes!). Please email me for a copy or more information. (
These are a couple of pages from the book. (There are more photos in some of my previous posts).


I just realized I have been tagged by Pamela who took my class at Artfest. Thank you Pamela! (I mean it!).(
I have to think hard and come up with 7 interesting facts about myself. So here they are:
1. I love to dance – folk dance and recently Salsa! The music is a big part of my enthusiasm.
2. I have an enormous number of collections, from Japanese Kokeshi dolls to green pottery, and from ethnic fabrics to ethnic masks.
3. My favorite place to spend a Saturday morning is in the flea market.
4. I am a total ignorant when it comes to computers.
5. I am first generation living in the US.
6. I lost my wallet in a taxi cab in Manhattan and got it back (minus the cash) from the driver.
7. I grew up in the same apartment where my father had his photo processing lab/store. I learned a lot from this experience.

Now I have to tag 7 people so here goes: (most of these great artists I have met except for two Lisa and Michelle whom I only "met" on line, but would love to meet "for real" some day).
