The Goddess and Mixed Media Assemblage

I've been given a huge Insight into my Mixed Media Assemblage artwork, straight from the Universe herself.  I used to think that my mixed media artwork was completely and totally about Creation about formation and birth and it is of course,  but it is also very much about destruction too. 

When I find something that wants to be something else,or something more there is always and I mean always a deconstruction phase.  Whether it's paint that has to be removed or a shadowbox frame that needs to be taken apart completely or a wine glass stem that needs to be cut off.

It's the complete picture of both birth and death, construction and deconstruction, chaos and order that is the actual Total Creation process, it's not "one sided"!  I see the Goddess in her own being, both as the creatrix and destructor!  Life is the total process, the light and dark.

Thank you Universe, I am deeply grateful that you speak to me and through me.

This is the the Aztec Goddess Coatlicue.  She represents the devouring mother, in whom both the womb and the grave exist.

The Universe & Brown Craft Paper

Now that my artful journey has led me to be a Cartoneria (papier mache artist). I needed brown craftpaper, my husband said, "Oh, we throw tons of that paper away every day at work, I'll bring you some". 

Well, his co-workers asked why he takes the paper home. When he told them that I use it for papier mache, they all banded together and get ALL the paper together each nite, and fill our car!!! 

So thanks Michael (the husband) and a big thanks to all the men at work too! 

The Universe must really like artwork and feel that it is very important for the world.  I'm very grateful and happy to be part of the Art Equation.

This is what I've made from all that wonderful paper!

Travelling through my Artwork

Just finished....Rainbow Skele-Faerie Shadowbox. This is the next generation of my skele-faerie creations, colorful yet muted background, no signage and multiple faeries in one. Though these muertos are rainbow I am not currently a devotee of
Santa Muerte.
Through powerful dreaming and inner travelling I am following a path set before me, through my artwork you will see what I see. Hope you will journey with me.
