I’m a middle-aged artist with a graphic design day job. I live in Dallas, TX. My husband Mike and I live with two terrier mixes (dogs) and six formerly alley cats.

All my spare time is spent making stuff or watching Mike’s band, The Big Guns, perform at local bars, festivals, etc.

The caricature of my previously curly head is the creation of my co-worker Mary Noon. She’s a great artist. I used to have curls courtesy of chemo but now I’m my straight haired self again.

    Hey! I just stopped by to say hi. The web site is not up. I’ve had the subscription since May of last year but have not had time to do anything with it. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I like you cat purse. I don’t think it would go with my Wal-Mart pocket T-Shirts though. 😉

    Hi Patti,

    I’ve just found the photos of your hallway – stunning! I’ve got two hundred postcards of book covers that i want to use to create a similar effect. I hope you don’t mind my asking but can you tell me what sort of adhesive you used and if you sealed the finished walls in any way? I’m in UK so things are different here, but I’m sure I can get like products over here.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Patti,

    I saw your post on the Huichol guitar and I just wanted to let you know that we’re raffling off a Huichol Guitar for $20.00 a ticket in Austin, TX. If you’d like, I can email a picture of it to you if you provide me your email address. It was donated to our arts organization by The Hermes Foundation, like the ones they donated to Carlos Santana and Deeprak Chopra. If you’re interested, please email me at ssummerfield@bellasartesalliance.com. Thanks!

    Hi Patti, I just was searching folk art sites and found yours, my husband Kelly Green is a Canadian Celtic Folk Artist and is wanting to find out how to expand his market so that he can show and sell his work. I am new to this technology and not sure where to start looking for direction or even what I should be asking. Any assistance you could give me would be greatly appreciated. thank you so very much, Rhea Green.

    Hiya Patti
    I really want to start crocheting, but I find it nearly impossible! I got a book called Yummy Crochet. I’ve been trying to TIE THE KNOT for, like, 30 minutes. Then again, Im only 10. Any tips?
