Collage art-"Paper Cloth Doll" series

A Little Girl with Ribbon: I made this by drawing and then inking the girl image and then coloring it with watercolor and markers then I cut pieces of scrap cloths and ribbons, sewing them directly to the paper and then gluing it to the girl ( its fun making this --makes me feel like an 8 year old again---playing with paper dolls !!)

Bali, Indonesia

Some sketches from the Island of Bali, Indonesia 2007

This was a sketch from my favorite cafe called Three Monkey Cafe in Ubud.

An early morning walk through the rice terraces.

From reading this entry from I finally took out a DIY craft I did awhile ago but never did anything out of it. I love doing things with my hands like sewing, crafting, drawing , printing and painting and I actually thought of creating a separate site for my crafts and possibly sell it online--so here is one of a few I've crafted.

The cover is a digital print of an original illustration I made of a Balinese folktale. I used it as a cover for a handmade blank book with small pocket inside tied with natural fiber rope. I used non-toxic glue and materials.

In My Art Room

This is where I draw, doodle, paint, print and make a lot of mess
( although you don't see the mess now, of course)

A Wonderful Blog from Anna, my niece

A family of writers:

Footsteps in the Snow

Today is a beautiful snowy day. Come take a walk with me.

I like days like these--I want to stay in my artroom forever, drawing, painting and doing all sorts of fun stuff. I am creatively cocooning and doodling.

There's a little Fairy on my coffee table. A painting I did awhile ago. I catch myself doing a lot of Fairy doodles and sketches . Now I have a little fairy friend I can take with me where ever I go.
I can even tell her all my deepest secrets.

Happy New Year!!

Some sketches from our European trip , Dec of 2008 done in my Moleskin artist book.
This was a sketch during our flight from New York to London

Another one in the plane (British Airways) It amazes me how other people pass their time away during the flight--some pick their noses.

Lobby of Vienna Intercon Hotel at 6:00 AM. I woke up very early and couldn't go back to sleep. So I went to the lobby and sketched.

My lunch: Goulash--I loved it and decided to get the recipe and bought some ingredients to take home. I ate this in a local restaurant in Vienna--far from the tourist spot.

A chic Viennese girl. I loved her outfit, beret and all.

Train ride from Vienna, Austria to Budapest, Hungary ( someone is sleeping)
