Another delightful altered journal from Little Joys Studio! I cannot recommend this artist enough-- I own 6 of her journals and love every one of them!
Little Joys Studio
I make things. Lots of things. I've been making things since I was a small child and I haven't run out of ideas yet. I officially started Little Joys Studio (the name refers to my children and features my initials) in 1993, when I began creating unique pins "just for fun." Each time I wore one I'd end up selling it off my chest, so I finally listened to my happy customers and showed them to a few local shop owners. They liked them, they really liked them! I was featured in monthly trunk shows at the Chicago area Nordstrom jewelry counters for over two years, where I developed quite a following, received valuable feedback, and learned oh so much. My current obsession is book making and assemblage, but who knows what will catch my creative muse next? I love vintage anything...photos, ephemera, fabric. Give me rust and lace over shiny and new. I use glass beads and crystals in many of my creations, right along side found objects and materials others call junk. Somehow it all combines to look like it was meant to be. I've spent my professional life working in hospice, crisis care, the funeral industry, and bereavement education and support, so the sacred experiences people share with me often appear in my art, addressing such themes as faith, hope, renewal, survival, forgiveness, and healing. Each piece I create has its own energy and is truly a one of a kind treasure. Thanks so much for stopping by Little Joys Studio and please feel free to contact me with questions or comments!
Owner, Designer, CEO-Chaos And Mayhem
I’m a mixed media artist, which means I can’t decide what I most like to work with, so I combine lots of different elements. Art is my therapy, my passion, my soul. I hope my work brings a smile to your face and touches your heart.
