Liberate Your Art 2012


For a second year, I’m participating in Kat Sloma’s Liberate your Art (international) Postcard Swap. The best part of the swap was the blog hop – an Open Day ay when all artists were able to pop into each other’s virtual studios. I’m still in contact with some participants of the 2011 swap and look forward to making new artistic friends again this year. If you’re an artist and/or photographer (many participants are photographers) I recommend joining in. There’s still time. You can get the philosophy and details here:

MMATC Group Rainbow Accordion Book: ORANGE


This is my Artist Trading Card for the Orange page of the Rainbow Accordion Book Project for MMATC (Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards) a Yahoo! group of artists based in the UK. The idea is that every month participating artists each make a card based on one colour of the rainbow and posts it to one of the other participants. Once we all have a card for each of the 7 colours of the rainbow, we each make up the cards we’ve received into an accordion book. I now have 2 beautiful cards, Red from Beth Powers and Orange from Alison Richards. You can see them in recent blogs – just search for MMATC. Continue reading

Encore! Liberate Your Art!


My walk with the ‘Liberate Your Art’ postcard swap has come to journey’s end. Liberate was enabled by Kat Sloma http://www.kateyestudio.com and I received this beautiful postcard image of a blue door a few days ago by way of ‘thank you’ for participating in the swap. The image is very apt as it could be said that Kat was ‘opening doors’. Continue reading
