I used to live in the Mojave desert in the Wild West with a bunch of animals. That's where tomboyART was born. Metal signs and carousel skirts. Art from old things we throw away, all with my color obsessed passion. Time and time went by and I found myself on the road with my animals, moving to the Mississippi Delta. Here, in this land of treasures galore, the best kept secret in the world, I found my home, my love and the best of times. Music, people, culture, love and oh man, the stories, it's the best damn place on earth! But shhhh, I didn't tell you.

I have a new skirt design, log maxi, cozy, cashmere, comfort for wintertime. Check them out. This spring there will be bookoo carousel skirts coming, just watch this space. Skirts…

Skirts from little ones to big ones, for all of us! Please email me if you want a custom skirt with your measurements and the color combo you'd like. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to make these yummy bits of deliciousness. You can email me at yolandevh [!at] yahoo.com or through the Etsy website.

License plate signs is another one of my passions, as an émigré from South Africa I have always been fascinated by the beautiful state plates, the colors, the icons, the typography, and have always wanted to make something with them, they're just too beautiful to discard. If you want a personal sign, let me know the states you are interested in or color scheme or if there are any particular iconic images that represent a memory, anything, and it'll be my pleasure to come up with something wonderful.

I'm also an art teacher and all the kids (young and old) know my studio is open any time for all sorts of hi jinx: arts and crafts, painting on the canvas of fun which is about 8 feet by 8 feet big, making stepping stones, building wacky paper mache towers and other whatnots! I work with Senior Citizens in town and they are a hoot, we often end up laughing so hard that tears fly out the crinkles in our eyes like mini water jets. I teach at an Alternative School for at risk kids, after school sewing workshops for teens, adult artful sewing classes and the list of creativity over here NEVER stops.

Everything gets shipped from the MISSISSIPPI DELTA, don't know why the shop says from South Africa. It's a kink I have to fix.

Thanks for visiting my shop :)
