My Decoupage plates are handmade with glass manufactured in in the US.I find vintage labels, prints,handmade paper and use the traditional method of decoupage.

I love to experiment with different mediums. My new discovery to keep it Raw & Organic and my love for elephants brought me to discover elephant dung paper.
Elephant dung paper paper products are 100% recycled. After the poo/dung is gathered, it's carefully rinsed with water, leaving only the fibrous materials from the grasses, bamboo and fruits the elephants have eaten but couldn't digest. Natural vegetative binding agents, along with water-soluble salt dyes for coloring are used. Handmade, acid free and as organic as it gets.

Other mediums I use include Fabric, handmade paper, dry leaves and sticks,my photos, watercolor paintings & blockprints,vintage labels,newspaper,ads,magazines,anything quirky and unique.
Influenced by Grandville, V.Balu,Thierry Poncelet,Francis Picabia,Romare Bearden.
My work has been used for cd covers,restaurant art piece,in bars,art classes,local galleries, barbershops,hairdressers,dentist office,accountant’s firm,pride parades and the United Postal Headquarters downtown Washington DC & for many Custom Birthday gifts.

I do Custom Birthday collages,which are always a hit. I will send you a form with questions of favorite things of B'day person,cars they drove,places visited,family friends photos....making it a memorable,fun, chronicle collage of their life.
