One World One Heart 2011

Welcome to my blog One World One Heart!

Note: 2/17/2011
Notice a few of our friends are flying in under the wire.
I'll do my name drawing tonight at 9:00 p.m.

My name is Cathy Horner and I am from Johnson City TN. I am a full time guitar instructor and collage artist working from my 110 year old farm house.

I've played guitar for over 38 years and my CD of original fingerstyle guitar compositions was broadcast internationally on radio stations. It was featured in Guitar Player magazine in 2003. I have been a performer doing songwriter showcases and other events. I now teach lessons beginner to advance.

If I could describe my collage art, I would say it "fell from the sky". I began making collages using actual vintage images (no scans), handmade papers, acrylic paint and found objects like real butterfly wings only four years ago! I've had gallery exhibits including solo shows, received awards, and juried into fine art festivals. My art has been featured in art reviews and a nine page article in Victorian Homes magazine last year. This Fall, six exclusive designs will be produced by Liberty Bottleworks and distributed nation wide.

The most important thing is I love what I do! Not only do I enjoy making art but making friends through my blog and the internet. I enjoy sharing my projects, experiences and exchanging ideas. I realize you have a lot of blogs to visit but welcome you to come back here and visit!

Now o

For those not aware of this event Whimsical Bohemian explains..

"One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy."
