Fantasies in my Whimsy

Welcome to my imagination! I create fairyland, storybook, and fantasy sculptures from handmade newspaper clay and recycled, repurposed, and reclaimed discarded items, such as cardboard, styrofoam, cereal boxes, milk cartons, and plastic bottles. Each sculpture is handcrafted with multiple layers, each taking at least 24 hours to cure, and is then primed, painted with acrylic paint, antiqued, and sealed with marine varnish. All, however, are indoor pieces.

My background is varied. Within the art spectrum, I’ve created pondering pools, soy candles, chain maille and other types of metal jewelry, fabric wall art, expressionist acrylic paintings, and now clay sculptures, utilizing the skills I acquired from my previous pursuits. My employment and education background has varied from nurse to quality manager to musician to holistic practitioner to editor and publisher. I am driven to learn by exploring.

In my Etsy shop, I list only those items that are easily and safely packaged and shipped. However, due to the time it takes to create the inventory of my sculptures, I often have to put my shop on vacation when I sell at in-person, juried art fairs and then remove the sold items before I'm able to list new ones.

If you see something for which you'd like to negotiate the price or items you'd consider wholesaling in your shop, contact me. I like working with my customers to bring them whimsy and joy. Also, I consider commissions to put your dreams and vision into something you can hold or display.

Visit my website and/or my Facebook page of the same name. I offer discounts through those two channels, so you're welcome to visit and contact me.

Thank you for your time in reading this and please feel free to contact me.
