About

What does one do in a 24 foot long travel trailer when your art supplies are in another state?

Actually, I was a published and produced writer (fiction, copy writing, writing gigs) but found myself staring at the walls when displaced by a hurricane named Katrina with no computer and no writing supplies. They were back in New Orleans growing mildew and falling apart.

Not having much space to work in a small travel trailer, I began making art dolls using found objects - - and found that doing so saved my mental life and changed my despair into delight. Art saves lives.

I evolved from the small dolls into larger objects, and now that we're resettled into a home there's room (a whole room) for found and interesting objects, mannequins, bird houses, old wooden boxes, and "stuff". I particularly am drawn to blessed things belonging to different religions like vintage statues, rosaries, distressed shrines, and even old voodoo dolls.

Everything has a history with found objects, but that history is a mystery in most cases - I love that.

Take care, and may you make happy art.

    (I've sold everything and have been working on a number of commissioned pieces the last few months, soooooo, my Etsy shop is bare. I am working on filling it up again!) Hope you are having a safe and happy summer.
