Totally New Post from Me with Art, Maybe

opening pages of Arthouse Sketchbook

Today is November 19, 2009

It is a cool fall day in the Berkshires.

I have made progress today uploading photos for you to see.

This is the opening page of my ArtHouse Sketchbook. This little book of collages has toured the country and is now residing at the Berkshire Art Kitchen at 400 Main Street in Great Barrington.

Today I am making gel transfers and taking care of a sick daughter. I have been overhearing “Alvin and the Chipmunks”…probably better overheard than seen. She is asleep now.

I have totally exhausted myself with all this uploading.

Tell me what you think of the collage. Can you see it well enough? Really, I want to know. Otherwise, take yourself to BAK to see it and other artist books.

Hope your day is full of light, S


Hello World Again


Announcing me, Suzi Banks Baum on my new and only website, Laundry Line

Yeah Me!

Thank you for coming.

Here you will have an opportunity to see what’s cooking at my house here in Western Massachusetts.

We live in a small town in the Berkshire Hills.

I am a full time Mom and artist.

I have a great husband.

Together we are raising two kids who are right now 11 and 15.

I was raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

I am an actor by training, a fine seamstress, fiber artist, mixed media collagist and writer. I garden with kids and alone. I am an avid preserver of the harvest, right now working with the bushel of quince my tree produced this fall.

I am a Sister Goddess.

I am a Moon Circle Sister.

I am here to share with you my journey as a Mom and Artist.

I am so happy to be here because this means I have figured out how to blog and my kids will be so proud of me. Just 3 years ago I did not even know or want to know how to use a computer. This goes to show you that even women hovering around 50 years of age can do amazing things. And that, my dear, is what this is all about.

I am writing a book about my journey in these hills of mothering and arting.

It is also called “Laundry Line Divine”. I may give you peeks in to the book as we go along here. If you like what you see and read here, I’d love to collect your email address so I can keep you up to date on my book and other things I do in the world.

This completes today post. I am beside myself with glee. If I can figure it out, wanna see some of my art? Here goes!!!!!!! Whee!!!!!!!!!!!!

With love and gratitude for spending your time with me, Suzi
