The Mind of the Mixed-Media Artist

Head on over to the Cloth Paper Scissor blog to read some Q & A between Cate Prato, the online editor at Interweave, and myself about the mind of the mixed-media artist and see some discoveries from my new book about being an artist today.

And stop by the the Interweave store where you will find my wish list of art supplies for this holiday season. See which products I cannot live without! And use code WISHLIST10 to save 10% off my picks.

My self portraits from my book The Mixed-Media Artist.

...the face we show the world is but a shadow of our innermost and true selves...


Archaeological Dig
Freud has likened psychoanalysis to archeology, describing it as the unearthing of meaning layered beneath an expanse of ruins. This resonates with me, in all the different bits and pieces of my life, including art...

What would Freud say about that?

That was one of our favorite things to say back when I was in college. Then I found that he would have too much to say about me, so I stopped talking about him.

I love your self-portraits. Of course! I'm not hard of seeing, after all!

Your self-portraits are fabulous and intriguing. You could do at least one therapy session on the first one - it's especially fascinating

You must be a very interesting person, lol. Although I've only "known" you for such a short time you have inspired me with your works and these works are no exception!

I enjoyed the interview at CPS. I like both of your self portraits, always interesting to see how others view themselves.
