Here we are!

We're throwing ourselves out to the world finally.  Studio6or7 is really two studios (6 and 7) at the moment.  Studio6 (that's me!) makes mixed-media art.  Studio7 (that's Cori) makes beaded and upcycled jewelry.  

Intro to Studio6:

My main materials are postage stamps, canvas and paint which I use to create my own personal vision of the world through my art pieces.  I've had a fascination with stamps for a long time because each one is a miniature little story in itself and I find the colors mesmerizing.  I spend a lot of time sifting through my huge stamp collection sorting by color and themes (like ships, planes, sports, animals, flowers, country, writers, etc...).  

I do mostly small works because they take a really long time to put all the layers together, but some new, larger pieces are currently in the works.  My initial idea with the stamps was to create a huge world map on a wall in my house.  Unfortunately, I just haven't had the right house yet in which to do it.  I imagine that will be a huge project of possibly 100,000+ stamps, but one I've been talking about and thinking about for probably 10 years or more.  In the meantime, I'm quite happy creating smaller visions and working on other ideas.  

Cori, over at Studio7 is really tied up right now with her 'real' job and working on her Masters degree, but she'll be posting more info. on Studio7 soon.

If you want to check out any of our works you can see them at:

I'm currently working on a website for Studio6or7 and will post the information for it once we have it up and running, which will probably be sometime in April.
