Featured Favorite Artist - Terri Gordon

Terri Gordon is my first featured artist. I am so excited to share her work with you. She is amazingly talented. She just started her blog, Designs by Terri Gordon.

Terri is a fellow Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group artist and is also part of Cassi's Creations Design Team on Etsy. She uses ribbon in ways you would not believe. Her creations are divine!

I asked Terri to tell me a little about her self. This was her reply, "I have been doing crafts all my life, I did a little of everything, but I get bored easily. It was a few years ago, I saw all the beautiful scrapbook papers and thought I have to do something with that. Then I found this wonderful medium of Altered Art. When my youngest son went off to college, I decided to sell my artwork, at first I was very nervous, I wondered who would pay me for my art and was it good enough. Then I just jumped into it and I am having so much fun. Call me crazy, but I love to cut things out of paper, the more intricate the better.

I have been married to a wonderful man and artist (Medical Illustrator) for 32 years now and have two wonderful son's. One is 26, who lives in Seattle and was just married and the other son is 20 and a junior at University of Michigan. I work part time for my husband's business, doing the accounting. Since I have joined Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group, I have had so much fun. the artists are so wonderful, and the best part is I finally get to use all the beautiful notions and ribbons that I have been collecting for years."
