My above art was designed with Infra and Penrose!  While stencils stand alone all by themselves, I like to use parts of the stencil, maybe running it off the page or overlapping a previous stenciled item.  Unique patterns to create my expression of color, texture, and contrast.


Blends of color used with the stencils add the texture and dimension.  I love these stencils - all of Artistcellar's line of stencils!

Took part in Clearprint's Cross Country Project!  Did art on the cover and inside on the vellum pages.  So many phenomenal artists took part.

I adore designing on clear or semi-clear surfaces.
