I grew up in New York and my father had a close friend who was a Mohawk. The Iroquois are an important part of the history and culture of New York so I am thrilled to have these beautiful stones in my home.

I visited the Pamunkey Reservation and museum and these stones truly reflect their designs. These stones perfectly complement my Pamunkey pottery.

About

" I Can See Baskets "

I'm sure that all of you are familiar with the famous movie line, "I can see dead people." That would indeed be creepy but my truth is, that I can see baskets. The first time this ever happened, the result was the one you see in the portrait. I had found an interesting piece of driftwood and planned to wrap it around two small baskets, joined at the base. One was shorter and bowl shaped, and the second was to be taller and thinner, and shaped like a goblet. The "bowl" was finished and attached to the driftwood. Halfway through the "goblet," it seemed to say, "turn me sideways." I thought that this might be interesting so I followed that impulse. The resulting piece was both astonishing and gratifying to see. Since then, I have never hesitated to follow these intuitive hits. I am seldom disappointed in the results.

Sometimes the finished form is more traditional, as in the second basket pictured. I was walking in the woods with my husband, and happened to pick up two pieces of bark with lichen on them. As soon as I looked at them, I "saw" the finished letter basket down to its color and the position of the bark.

I find that if I continue to follow these visual images, they continue to pop into my head. If I ignore them, they stop coming to me. I'm far too fascinated by them to allow that to happen, and I hope that you will enjoy my visions too.

Welcome! I'm so glad that you stopped by. I appreciate your interest and support.
I'm a mixed media artist. I began as a basketmaker years ago. I began to want more variety in my work, and I discovered mixed media art. My original business name was Dreamweaver. I used to "see" a finished piece in my mind's eye and then would try to weave it. After completion of that, another would pop into my mind. I have since discovered that dream images occur in almost any media, so I've kept dreaming. Come along with me!

I will be showing my ACEO's and altered pieces for sale, but I have dicovered that most folks prefer to purchase art supplies to fuel their own creative process. I'll be offering my own hand-distressed papers and fabric papers, as well as vintage keys, watch parts and other tantalizing cool old stuff. This will change as I encounter things, so check back often. I hope that you have as much fun looking as I did finding!

Payment
I ask that you pay for items within 7 days. I accept Paypal, Direct Checkout, and Etsy Gift Cards. I ship to the Paypal address, so please make sure that it is correct. Also, please note that my prices are firm. I do not "bargain" so please do not offer me a lower price than the one listed. Thanks!
Shipping
I will ship your item within 3 business days, but in most cases I ship the same day that your payment clears. I ship USPS First Class Mail. If the package is heavy, I ship USPS Parcel Post. I do not insure unless you request it. I do request delivery confirmation. I hand-deliver all packages to the post office myself. I cannot be responsible for their delivery after that point. I have never had a mishap, however.

I combine shipping and offer shipping discounts on multiple items.

At this time I ship only to the United States.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me within 7 days of receipt of your item, if you wish to return it. I offer a full refund, and the buyer pays return postage.

Again I hand-deliver items to the post office and am not responsible if they lose it. Please convo me in situations like this.

Most items I sell are one-of-a-kind, so I generally don't offer exchanges.
Additional policies and FAQs
My home is smoke free. I ship in recycled materials whenever possible. If your bubble envelope looks "used" it probably is!
