I am a self taught mixed media artist in Massachusetts, USA. I love working with acrylics, inks, watercolor, paper making, eco printing, fiber art, clay and photography. I especially enjoy creating my own gel plate prints. Over the years I have exhibited at many local art festivals, including the Lowell Folk Festival. I have donated artwork to the Brush Art Gallery for their annual Four by Four exhibition and have displayed works in other local galleries. A tutorial for my polymer clay snowmen pins was published in Polymer Cafe magazine. I was a contributor in the Alcohol Ink Art Community and truly enjoyed being an instructor in that amazing group. For ten years, I was the owner/operator of a handmade soap making business called JoyLin Naturals. I like to surround myself with bright colors. Much of my artwork is influenced by what I see outdoors. My art reflects the part of me that whispers "Let's go out and play".
