Welcome to my shop, my profile name is Altered Head . The name alTeReDhEaD stems from my aLtErEd aRt. . I like to create ALTeReD aRt... I love various conceptual art forms / genres/ mediums.. Featured In my shop you will find every theme imaginable : The Light , the Dark, The Conceptual , The Philosophical, The Misunderstood the Sarcastic Side, the Juvenile Side, Political side , Human Rights aspects, cultural artwork , self help listings and mature art work listings.

Each piece that I create speaks to me on some level, each has a special place in my heart as it is part of me . I also write all of my descriptions/ bios, for most pieces in my shop. the bios touch many, as each individual item tells it's very own unique story. My artwork seems to move people, it helps to put them back in touch with their inner self and higher consciousness. My artwork speaks to some, it , in a way, conveys their story or their feelings thoughts and sentiments, my art conveys what some have trouble conveying themselves, a whole range of emotions, confusion , curiosity, happiness, sadness, feelings of being under appreciated, dispair or even misunderstood. My shop will take you on artistic, philosophical and interesting journey... I work mostly with found objects, lots of metal, gears, screws, rusted items, vintage dolls from circa 1860's,various ephemera, card stock, scroll work, burn patterns, distressed ink, colored pencils, rhinestones, metal blanks for jewelry making , sharpies , glass, brass and various other materials .. You will also find some supplies as well as authentic vintage clock movement/ parts rings, various other handmade rings and very unique, conceptual handmade necklaces. I also create altered wall hooks, wall hangings, aLtEreD assemblage and collage work as well as Altered Vases. I love to aLteR and objects and modify photos and/ or various other images and illustrations .......

I am a huge supporter of Etsy, I am also a frequent buyer on Etsy, there are some incredibly talented aRtists and various shops here .. Etsy is the way to go for your online shopping and a little retail therapy when you need it ..

Oh..and before I forget, here is A bit of a bio on Altered Art : It is a broad term that encompasses many styles and genres of art. At its most basic, it gives a new artistic life to old and/or used mundane, utilitarian items through the application of techniques and combination's, some recognized as standard artistic methods,some not. The result may serve both a functional purpose as well as a creative and
artistic piece. Any Art , is an expression of yourself, an experiment in creativity, and revealing pieces of who you are, peeling back the layers so to speak. Among Altered Art you will find art created from the undisguised, but often modified, use of objects that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a everyday, utilitarian function. in the making of which more than one medium has been employed, and may include any or all of the above techniques and genres. Most aLtErEd aRt is considered mixed media, but not all mixed media is AlTeReD aRt, as it may not include reused recycled,objects.AlTeReD aRt can be two- or three-dimensional, although most of the flat expressions of AlTeReD aRt incorporate some dimensional objects to a varying degree. The variety of what falls under the term "aLtErEd aRt "is infinite in many ways.. ACEO history: ACEOs are miniature pieces of art that measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2". If a small piece of art has different measurements than this, it does not qualify as an ACEO. The acronym "ACEO" stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They can be original art, print editions or photographs.The majority of ACEOs are two dimensional, but three dimensional elements may also be incorporated. Pop-ups, books, collages, and sculpture can all be ACEOs as long as they measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"! ACEOs stemmed off of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), Like ATCs, ACEOs may be made with any media, material, or method as long as they measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2". ACEOs are made with the intention to sell. .

" I, believe an artist’s work should reflect that person’s unique style , along with the feelings they seek to evoke. There is just a tone to my work which sort of demands a truth; it just has to derive a place of truth, a place of honesty.  The artist takes a chance, there’s a certain element of risk. Authenticity means the artist is not relying on clichés or familiarity.”
