Jazz and collage greeting cards

 

Handmade greeting cards of cartoon jazzcats, jazz musicians as gesture drawings and collages are what I create. Prints from the originals are made into greeting cards using a variety of paper for the collage, the outer card and the inner sheet. I also make cards with other themes like seashells, nature and favorite geographical locations. Mixed media collage is another endeavor melding abstract images and rich fragments of ethnic patterns, combining paper, paint and pastel.

 

 

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I graduated from Hardin-Simmons University and have worked in commercial art. I received an MA in printmaking from Olivet College in Michigan

 

Decided to make these cards after discovering jazz, but realized it was a rediscovery since my Dad was a stride pianist and radio broadcaster performing live music on radio and early television.

                                                                                                                                                 

Some of the artists featured are Louis Armstrong, Dianne Reeves, Diana Krall, Charlie Parker, Nancy Wilson, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and more.

 

Cards are reasonably priced and include envelopes.

I would also be glad to create a custom design for you.
