"I've worked with my hands all my life. I had to create something even if it didn't turn out the way I thought it should. I have discovered digital art and fell in love with this new medium of expression. My art is called Color Merge and is as bold as they come. The colors blending and melting into each other making a simple pasture into a fantasy world. I have three groups of Color Merge art, human, flowers, landscapes."

My name is Darlene Howell. I am married and have four children. I am for the most part a stay at home mother. I am a hairstylist as well but when I started having children I decided to stay at home with my children and I only do my family and friends hair now. I help children cross the street at the local school for an hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon, but other then that the only other income I have is from the sale of my art.

in first person...
I have always been interested in Art; always loved to draw and paint. Although my life experience has taken me elsewhere, art has always been on my mind.
In recent years, I have come back to my love of creating art and have discovered printmaking, in particular, paper lithography, screenprinting and linocut.

In my shop, I am offering prints and also some collage. I hope you will enjoy my artwork as much I have enjoyed creating them!

If you are a self representing artist - who enjoys encouragement (giving as well as receiving) - and if you sell on etsy or ebay (or other online venues, including a personal website) we would be glad to have you in our CAAT TEAM family :)
Begin by joining* our FACEBOOK and/or the CAAT TEAM on etsy and share all your arty links so CaaT members can visit you and see your shop. Once accepted, please jump into the discussion forums as you are able - you will find all the neccesary CaaT info there :) ... Once a member of CaaT on facebook/etsy you can begin to use the group acronym and explanation (and optional banner) right away. As you see - we are already high in etsy searches at over 2000 arty items ~ ! (and growing with the new acronym CAAT TEAM).
