About

The name Artful Notions came about when I first started to sell some of my pieces. They were small glass necklaces that incorporated vintage buttons. I thought hmm. . . sewing notion and notion as an idea and Artful Notions was born. Mixing textures, colors, mediums—new with old, fabricated with found—is what really interests me. I created a mixed media valentine, years ago, entitled "Wind up the Girl", (kind of a clockwork girl collage) and the idea of gears and clockwork just stuck with me. I like things that sparkle but when mixed with something broken and rusty— now that makes it special!
