The View Behind The Workbench

I've joked about customizing from a shoebox before, but in all honesty my art tends to take over the house! Every so often I corral it back onto the workbench, but the chaos invariably spreads.

But half the fun is getting messy and I love trying out new mediums and tweaking old methods. My goal is to have every item in the Etsy shop broken down step by step so folks can play along at home if they like!

Have any questions about how to make or paint something? Drop by my Facebook page and ask and I'll be happy to help! :)

    Hello out there and welcome to the madness! :) I'm the painter, sculptor, caster, writer, etc. that is the source of all the artistic chaos in this shop. I love trying out new things so my listings can bit a tad eclectic at times.

  • Shiva & Bucket


    Nothing better than some at-paw stress relief to make a long weekend committing art move a little faster! :D Shiva and Sir Buckethead the Gallant both to their part to help make the workbench a lively place.

  • Taft


    Taft is my quality assurance feline and he takes great pride in making sure each piece of artwork has been deemed acceptable. Sadly he also thinks brushes are great to nibble on, so he's partially to blame for my art supply addiction! ;)

After a bit of a sea change, I realized I love my day job and I love making art more when I'm not trying to make money from it. So instead of trying to make a living, I'm just trying to keep the art horde stocked so please don't be worried about the low prices! 😀
