PURSE-ue Your Dreams-MY DREAM LIFE

Posted on July 18, 2017 at 11:38 AM
Another week and another purse reveal. This project has been such an exciting experience.  If this is your first time reading this post...please scroll down to read and see all the other lovely purse reveals so far...not to mention the story itself.  I sit on the Niles Arts and Culture Advisory Council here in Niles, Illinois who is sponsoring my project.  I am so very fortunate to have such wonderful artists volunteer both their time and their talent to participate in this charity project.  There are 20 purses that will go under a complete transformation.  Repurposing purses to help repurpose lives.  They will go on a traveling display from the museum, library, special event and finally end at a live auction at the senior center all in Niles.  This will begin Oct. 5th and end with the auction on Dec. 2nd.  I hope that you will enjoy viewing these wonderful pieces of art and that one of them will be just the perfect piece of art for you.  And with that being said...onto to this weeks Purse and artist.

Mixed Media Artist ~ collage, painting and mixed media


I have been working in mixed media collage since 2005 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have both a self-taught and a formal fine arts background and am well versed in the arts and crafts. Mixed media is a great vehicle for me to practice all the skills I have learned over the years.
After living in Chicago for many years, I have relocated to St. Petersburg, FL and now have my dream studio in my new home. I travel teach classes in mixed media, Ink on Yupo paper and my “Healing HeArt” journaling and mixed media class for those who need to break free of a broken heart.
My artwork can be described as whimsical, feminine and beautiful. I like to create with items that are normally cast away as unusable and give them a new life in my artwork. I also enjoy teaching beginner painters and showing them that they too can be creative.

For 35 years I have dreamed of living in Florida again and live by the sea where bougainvillea grows. I've called it my dream life and have worked to create this dream into a reality. Finally, last year, my dream came true! I have a beautiful little blue house, in a nice neighborhood with saltwater canals that connect to the ocean. I enjoy the weather, the scent of the salty air in the mornings and many beautiful sunsets. A trip to the beach and the ocean is only 20 minutes away. I encourage everyone to pursue their dreams and follow their heart to live the life they dream of. 
This purse has been also beaded in a number of places, as well as fringe being added and beaded. Even the beads at the base of the handles have been painted and glittered.  What an amazing piece of art.

That would surely be my dream life, too! The sounds and smells and sights and "feels" of the water are so tantalizing and nourishing and calming. First time to look, are there also "before" pictures? Someone is going to love, love, love this lively and lovely beaded and painted bag!
