"My interests are
experimenting and learning. I am always eager to learn new things
especially in the sphere of art, e.g., wearable art and computer art,
and experimenting in mixing media. e.g., fabric collage for wearable art
or wall hangings or perhaps on a stretched canvas. I enjoy taking
classes and workshops in order to widen my view of possibilities and
techniques and for comradeship and encouragement.
My style is loose
(experimental?). I dislike picky detail. I would rather "wing it" than
paint within the lines."
