WKAL 1450 Art Interviews : Ilse, the Fairy Grandmother

This morning I visited WKAL 1450 Radio in Rome, NY. 

Today Rocco Garro interviewed my friend Alice Dennis, a very talented artist who specializes in puppetry.  (hear interview starting at around 2:00:00 at the bottom of this page)

She was talking about her upcoming appearance as Ilse, the Fairy Grandmother, this weekend, at MAYFAIRE on the GREEN, in Holland Patent. You should really check it out!

 Ilse, the Fairy Grandmother interview starts at around 2:00:00

I will be visiting WKAL to take photos of art-related interviews - it's always good to have visuals to go with their great LIVE streams. Watch here and on our Facebook page to see more in the future! Special thanks to Rick Weltz and WKAL for allowing me to share MORE art!

Mixed Media Accordion Book - Holder of Treasures with Jean Stambaugh Peter

This little book was inspired by a similar book I had seen on the internet, but I did not save it, and for the life of me I have no idea when or where I seen it!! So I made what I thought I had seen. That is really a bit normal for me anyway . I am always seeing something different that what it really is!!

My Funny Valentine: I Heart Zendoodle! with Mandy Russell

This Valentine-themed Zendoodle is sure to make you ask questions. It's got that bizarre, Alice-In-Wonderland or Tim-Burton-feel to it. Is the heart plant a good presence? Or not so good? With the crazy look on her face as well as her curly-Q tentacles, she seems to lean towards the creepy side. And that little bump of a bee? Just what are his plans???

Whatever your take on this garden scene is, it's sure to wow viewers. Plus the act of just doodling is itself such a joyful meditative process. So grab a pencil, a black Micron pen, a piece of drawing weight paper, a blending stump, and a cup of tea. Create your own little weird and whimsical Valentine-inspired landscape.

Mixed Media Mini Folder and Collaged Zine with Jean Stambaugh Peter

It was a true struggle to come up with just the right thing to share! But after a little digging in the stash I came up with something kind of fun and bright!! I know we all buy supplies, they were on sale , they were clearance, or maybe the were just for sale!! We have the best intentions but sometimes we put it away really well!! I ran across this package of 2 mini folders, and being in a zine state of mind, I felt this was perfect!! Besides I have not shared much of my collage work!!
