I am an artist, Expressive Art Facilitator and Coach, Designer, published writer and poet, have owned a couple of small businesses both online and brick and mortar, and I LOVE art and writing. I live with my husband, Kris, who is also an artist (plus works full-time), and our two rescued dogs and cats. I have two grown sons and four grandchildren (2 girls and 2 boys).We live in a log cabin in the country with tons of huge oak trees around us. Our house isn't large, but it is perfect for the two of us, with another bedroom for guests. At night you can sit on our porch and hear the coyotes howling in the not so distance. We have tons of wildlife, and one of my other joys is watching the birds and squirrels eat from our bird feeders.
I also write a blog at http://tazscorner1.blogspot.com ! I am a survivor and advocate for Prevention of skin cancer, heart disease and domestic violence. I am currently teaching a Workshop called "Embrace the Day", which is an Expressive Arts art and writing workshop, where we deal with a new emotion each week. Guaranteed to help you feel better about yourself both inside and out!! Sign up for it at http://pamelajoypurses.ning.com, or email me at LThykeson@yahoo.com for info. You can begin at any time, it is a constantly going workshop!

When I first began this altered book project , I had no idea what I was doing. I had read about altered art, but this was the first project that I had ever done. Being a traditional artist, the whole concept seemed foreign to me. As I worked on it,...
If you spend much time practicing art, then you have probably suffered from artist block at some time or another. It is a really frustrating feeling to want to create, but you just can't seem to get either the ideas going, or you have the ideas, you...
I have discovered a new hobby that is quickly overtaking all of my "spare" time. It is mail art, and I have become obsessed with it. I was of the opinion that "snail mail" was quickly becoming a thing of the past, with all of the technology we have...
Everyone that is interested in, or may have had art lessons is used to the idea of colored pencils being used in art, but what about crayons? I had never related children's crayons to art in any way, until tonight. I was in my art room and was...
