Snake and Roxy's Profile

About

A hunter and a crafter and both sweet as pie, my parents have always been a very cookie-cutter couple. I always pictured them as a Mike and Carol Brady with their PTA meetings and Little League games. Then one day they bought a motorcycle and joined a (super friendly) biker posse. No one saw that coming. With a sideways smile and a giggle, my aunt affectionately calls them "Snake and Roxy."

My mother taught me to crochet when I was 10, and my life has been about creating ever since. I still love to crochet. My passion for theatre has moved me into creating fun, extravagant, and sparkly costume pieces. And sometimes I find a random thrown out item at a thrift shop that deserves a makeover and I give it a new life.

I also do a lot of work with paper and paper mache. These pieces usually start as a wandering leaf of junk mail that has made its journey to my door. A lot of care goes into transforming the paper- painting, cutting, shaping, rolling, sealing, layering, sanding, assembling, etc. Some of these brave sheets are broken down into pulp and made into a clay. Some pages get to stay in their solid state while being painted in a myriad of designs, or left unpainted to show off the fabulous colors of their advertisements.
Others are delicately used as paper mache.

Some of my pieces feature only one method; others combine them.

Influences: David Bowie, John Waters, Alfred Hitchcock, Alexander McQueen, H. R. Giger, Audrey Hepburn, Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe, Science Fiction, and Horror Movies.
