About

Hi and welcome to my studio. I am a self taught artist who comes from a long line of self taught, creative family members. I was always encouraged as a child to create and imagine and spent many happy days watching my extremely talented mother draw, paint, build many wonderful rooms for our barbies or tiny worlds seen through a window. My father claimed he could not draw but he was very crafty and created many functional pieces such as tables, rugs and even clothing. My grandmother was a painter and witty poet and I am fortunate to have a few of her pastel drawings that I cherish. I remember fondly my greatgrandmother's beautifully crafted Raggity Ann and Andy dolls. Being raised in this culture of art and "making" I was destined for such a path myself.

Hi and welcome to my studio. I am a self taught artist who comes from a long line of self taught, creative family members. I was always encouraged as a child to create and imagine and spent many happy days watching my extremely talented mother draw, paint, build many wonderful rooms for our barbies or tiny worlds seen through a window. My father claimed he could not draw but he was very crafty and created many functional pieces such as tables, rugs and even clothing. My grandmother was a painter and witty poet and I am fortunate to have a few of her pastel drawings that I cherish. I remember fondly my greatgrandmother's beautifully crafted Raggity Ann and Andy dolls. Being raised in this culture of art and "making" I was destined for such a path myself.

I am never happier than when I am surrounded by bits and pieces, and frankly a mess, of the elements of a project. I like to work obsessively until it is finished. My house suffers and people and animals must beg to be fed during those times.

I enjoy drawing in pencil, painting in acrylics and sculpting in polymer clay. I also enjoy decoupage, paper mache and creating functional objects from repurposed items. I love vintage, antique, the well used and the odd and forlorn. I really hate to be stuck in one medium or style so you will find an eclectic collection in my shop with no rhyme or reason. Each piece comes from my heart and soul and from what land my mind is exploring at the moment. I hope you will enjoy browsing through my world and maybe find something that speaks to you.
