Hi, Milena Martha Duran here; perhaps you remember me with my daughter
in law, Sheila Duran in Winnetka, a wannabe marbler. To answer your survey:
I somehow do not like the term hobbyist so say I am an advanced
amateur marbler working on both paper and fabrics. I find fabrics sell
better, especially silks, so I sometimes pay part of my "hobby" expenses with
Besides being a marbler I am a paper maker and divide my art time.
When the marbling is out I work intensely, many hours each day, for several
weeks. Then other projects come out and the marbling waits its turn again.
Over time, as the family grew and left home, I have carved out almost
half of my home for a studio.
I have shared what I know in many workshops mostly in my studio.
Before my recent move I taught perhaps five times a year.
I have attended three gatherings, including Istanbul, and am
registered for Arrowmont.
You didn't ask, but I have taken workshops from Don Guyot, Galen Berry
and yourself. See you at Arrowmont, md
