Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. If you have time, please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you. / Please read...

Who am I?

By DNA and cultural experience, I am Alaskan born, from Irish-Texas heritage, with just a smattering of Chinese, French and Cherokee thrown into the mix. Okay, more than a smattering of Cherokee and Chinese, but, it’s hard to quantify or prove. It’s enough to make me happy that it is so.

Really, I am a writer, who also, at times, is a painter, drawer, beader, singer … Art, to me, is life. I have lived many different lifestyles, in many different places. I consider the Earth my home and love to delve into ethnic diversity in clothing, food, company, interior design or whatever else there is on offer. There is too much beauty to limit oneself to a small corner of a big and lovely planet. And, everywhere, at all times, there is and always was, in me and surrounding me, artistry.

I am a lover of God, fond of Man, at peace with nature (when it lets me be so), and open to possibilities. If I could, I would change my name to Camille (always Camille, never Cam or Millie), live in a home that has a shady court yard, and, gather peaceful artists there to sing, dance, paint and carry on.

I have sold paintings and drawings in the United Arab Emirates, England, Ireland, as well as various parts of the United States, as exclusive pieces to private collectors. I not do art shows or sell in galleries, in general, being something of a recluse by nature. I would prefer to spend my time in the creation of art and in the company of good friends, than in self-promotion.

Isn’t that a beautiful dream?

I would also prefer to sell the piece, as a type, just the once, even when it is digital By that, I mean that I would prefer someone who purchased a print in a certain medium to know that it is exclusively their purchase. When their purchase has been made, that piece, at least in that medium, will no longer be on offer. That is the idea of purchasing artwork, in part, that you are finding something that speaks to you and is for you.

I am not making guarantees, mind you. I cannot promise that someone will not be purchasing a small canvas print, just as you are purchasing a large one. But, I can guarantee you that once I have been informed of the sale and production of a canvas print, photographic print, or what-have-you, I will remove all possibility of that sort of print of that piece being purchased by any other person.

This is true, also, of t-shirts, hoodies, dresses, scarves and the like. Smaller purchases, such as mugs, stickers, drawstring bags will be kept at a lower price with no guarantee of any attempt at exclusivity.

Artist Community? Community? How?

Sometimes, I ask myself this, as I watch my artwork get roundly ignored, never having one view or comment from someone who is part of this community, even after years; or, perhaps, having up to 5 views and zero comments in a few days, a few weeks, a few years … / And, now, asking myself this, again, after returning to Red Bubble, I can’t answer for anyone else; but, I can answer for m…

For those who are wondering ...

… no, I am not really trying to break RedBubble. It’s just that I was away for a long time and, during that time, I amassed quite a bit of artwork, some finished and some not. / On top of that, when I got here, I found that some pieces had disappeared, except for the small images that appeared under ‘Edit’ for the calendars, and, some were of very low resolution, mysteriou…

The Doughnut Hole 3-02-2016

This is a little poem, of sorts, inspired by a conversation I had with my youngest son/child. We were just being silly. / It’s not quite up to being a full-fledged written work, which is why I am posting it here, instead of as a proper piece. But, I like it and I am not particularly interested in changing it, right now. So, here you go. / The Doughnut Hole 3-02-2016 / Officer Krupke did it …

Is there anyone who can tell me ...

…. how come it is that when I uploaded new work, it said Upload to All Products, but, none of those products were posters or any such thing as that? / I can’t find a link to anything where I can ask the people in charge or where I can read the answer for myself. / Thank you.
