I love coffee. So why not play with the accessories? I’m trying out art on coffee filters creating very “imperfect” mandalas. I love the way the thin filter paper soaks up markers. So far, I’ve been using colored pencil to fill in the spaces but I’ll try some watercolors next to see what happens.

What are you working on today? Leave a comment and a link to your blog. I’d love to see.

I have been painting and drawing since childhood. I paint mainly acrylic works in a traditional style that is sometimes representative and other times impressionistic. I love bold, bright colors, but also explore softer tones in my work. Often I incorporate African design in paintings or play with symbols to create a personal language. I also design and make beaded jewelry and create greeting cards that are works of art that can be framed. My work has been exhibited in the Boston area, and I have been featured on HGTV’s “That’s Clever!’’ making handmade cards.
