PURSE-ue Your Dreams-Mysterious Lady

Another week or so has past.  I hope that if you are following this blog, you are enjoying the posts on the updated purses.  It has been such an exciting venture.  It always boggles my mind when I see the creative juices flowing in others.  It always amazes me with what people come up with. If this is your first time seeing this blog...welcome and I hope that you will enjoy going on this little adventure with me.  I am Debi Gajewski of Niles, Illinois and I am proud to sit on the Niles Arts and Culture Advisory Council.  I am also pleased to tell you that the Council has chosen to sponsor one of my projects called PURSE-ue Your Dreams.  I have scouted around Resale stores for purses that are in great condition .  Next I asked for artists to donate their time and creative talents to repurpose a purse with their art. I consider myself extremely fortunate to find some wonderful artists.  The purses will go on a traveling display beginning Oct. 5 until the day of the auction.on Dec. 2nd..which by the way, Lot14, an auction house here in Niles has volunteered to do for me.  The proceeds of this auction will benefit the Wings charity.  What better way than to repurpose purses to help repurpose live.  Wings is a wonderful charity and I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with them.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email me at thewonderfulwizardofart@hotmail.com.  
And now...onto this weeks purse and this week's artist.

I am a retired Dental Assistant.
I live in Prospect Heights, Illinois with my husband Paul and Eddy our dog, who allows us to live with him.
After retirement, I started taking classes in art.  I was lucky to have been exposed to some very talented artists as mentors.  In the art of acrylics, watercolor and color pencils.  Over the years, I have developed my own style of painting. I painted this purse using Deco Art SoSoft Fabric paints. I just loved working with them. 
I want to thank you for choosing me to be part of the Niles "PURSE"-Your Dreams project.
