Announcement    Hi! I try to distill a lifetime of observing nature into miniature works of art to grace your home and life.
I've made art since I was a child, and my favorite mediums currently are polymer clay and found object mosaics.
Gardens, plants, wild animals, my land, other lands, biospheres, the physical & spiritual wheel of the year- all of these inspire me, and then I make my quirky art in response.
I love making original art switch plates so you have a work of art to delight you when you step up to the switch- plus, they don't take up any counter space and don't require dusting!
I've made decorative egg sculptures since I was a child, and I now covers eggshells with polymer clay....most of them turn into owls...and unlike eggshells, they're very, very strong.
The polymer clay works are made of hundreds of little pieces of colored clay, put together in different ways. There's no paint on anything- the clay itself is colored.
After making the pieces, I cure them by baking to become strong like PVC piping.
For larger wall pieces, I'm often inspired by recycled cardboard packing material base. Cardboard shoe inserts? They become owls.
Fluorescent lightbulb packing? They become doorways.
