Market Days at The Gables

June 17, 2019 - Comments Off on Market Days at The Gables

Had a couple of fun days at the Market Days event. It was the first time I’ve taken my crazy board people art out on the road. The response I got was great and I’m ready to get back to work in my studio to replenish my inventory. My first commitment is to finish a custom jacket order though, then I can switch gears.

Board Talk

It’s something new that I’m doing to break the “spell”. Mixed media assemblage art with a story. Old boards, all kinds of recycled materials (and some oil paint sticks that I found hiding in my studio) got me out of the uninspired mode I was in.

Their expressions are all unique and their “stories” (quotes that I find while looking for inspiration) are hand-hammered into the wood and painted.

You can find the details in my new etsy shop:

Making Hats

August 11, 2017 - Comments Off on Making Hats

Here are a few of my most recent hat creations–all are made with recycled fabrics.   So. I’m working towards stocking my etsy shop — it’s looking rather bare right now. Watch for new things to come. In the meantime, to see what I’ve made (and sold) in the past you can click here.
