My heart lives here… Amidst the tubes of paint, the splashes of color, the glitter that create me as I create it. Blue, yellow, gold, yellow green, pink, orange and teal, splashes of red, some metallic too. Up-cycled, recycled a wooden drawer and a plastic veg tray become the stuff of art I make. A […]
Magnetic + recycle = up-cycle. 50% new and 50% recycle, for an art project that feels okay. Every time I go thrifting and flea marketing, I’ve noticed there have been an abundance of cheap tin serving trays. Sooooo…my recycling brain kicked into gear and said why not use these tins as substrates for a variety […]
This past Sunday was Mother’s Day here in the USA. I was remembering my Mother’s garden so many moons ago now. It was not fancy, it was not ornate but it sure was cheery. I believe these memories were the impetus for this small 8×10″ painting. (you are seeing the cropped instagram version). She will […]
Flower Girl full of whimsy and surprise. Naive, innocent and sweet. She surrounds herself with bitsy blooms. Flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere. Happy Sunday, happy week.
<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/14620307/?claim=mqeunegs7ac”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> There was a distinct chill breeze in the air this morning and I thought, Autumn rising.

Painting, painting and more. Working on 8 canvases simultaneously. Getting ready for a show and an art fair. Blues have been calling me all summer. This river I walk daily must be singing to me. Sand and detritus, odd bits and fabric still to be-come a part of it all. Painting until the energy drains […]
Three photos from a trip to Ojo Caliente, NM became the inspiration for these new works. The images are all taken at the desert home of a dear friend and evoke not only the spirit(s) of the place, but the warmth of my sister/ friend and her husband and dogs who live there. Each photo […]
The best part about doll making is the stories they have to tell me. I am always hearing whispers of who they want to be as the process goes along. Whether it’s a piece of fabric that I chose, or a button, or even the thread colors(I use variegated cotton thread from Italy by Sulky), the […]
My dual fishy nature often causes me to head in two directions in my creative life. Some days it’s all soft and cute, other days it’s funky and odd. Some days it’s both. There is no consistency in my path, but I feel like my authenticity comes through no matter where I wander on my […]
Painting for the next show at the gallery “Artist’s Choice”. Summer Pops 1 & 2. 18×24 on canvas board. Acrylic and acrylic inks. Color is exploding everywhere.
