I have always had a love of “arts and crafts”, but it wasn’t until 1991 that I discovered the world of rubber stamping and mixed media. As owner of the first rubber stamp store in Cincinnati, Stamp Your Art Out, I had many opportunities to share the latest techniques, as well as seeing my own style develop and grow. In 1992, I began the Stampaway USA Rubber Stamp Convention…the first of its kind east of the Mississippi River. Now, as a “retiree”, I’m taking my love of vintage items and combining them using various mixed media techniques. Working with canvas, I can now capture the history of my family with a photograph, some jewelry, lace, and paint.
