I am so excited! I recently became a member of an artists' co-op gallery and we're having our grand opening June 18!! The gallery is located in the historic borough of Bristol, PA on Mill Street, the main street in town leading down to the Delaware River. If you live anywhere near the area, please drop in to see my paintings and collage.  (I sit in the gallery on Mondays, in case you're coming.)

Here are photos of the artists hanging our work for the opening.  They also show a how the building looks from the street and an orientation session for some community volunteers who are generously helping us to keep the gallery open for extended hours.…

This makes me legit, right?  That's how I feel, anyway.  Now I just need to get on with having some business cards made up.

Journal History


cricketswool's Profile Picture
Deborah E.
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I've been on a winding artistic journey, always driven by a tremendous urge to create. I did artistic crafts while raising a family: candle-making, sewing, papier maché, dyeing, spinning, beading, weaving, rug-braiding, knitting, crochet, quilting, tatting, crewel embroidery, needlepoint, appliqué, and needle-lace.

In midlife I became particularly interested in collage and at the same time used my background in crafts to land a job teaching elementary school art. When my school closed I found myself free at last to seriously pursue art. I studied drawing and painting for three years at Fleisher Art Memorial and continued my self-guided explorations of art and crafts.

My original paintings and drawings are for sale on the Saatchi website; prints and derived works are for sale at Society 6. My digital designs are available at and yard goods — fabric, wrapping paper, and wallpaper — featuring my work can be found at

Thanks you SO much for all of your feedback. You seem to have a high taste for lines, which makes you an artist after my own heart! I will take all of your advice and make sure to use it next I pick up my camera
