About

Driven to Create

Creative energy is high surrounding Halloween. The Celts prepared for winter as they approached their New Year's celebration- Samhain, modernly known as Halloween. It is also known as my birthday, according to the ancient tradition of celebrating from sun down to sun up.

This is what I was born into and what drives me to create. The mystery surrounding the past and collecting bits of it from near and far meld into my work.

Images and objects, music, dance and textiles from other times and places draw me in and guide me to tell a story. Whether it is theirs, mine or ours, I don't always know. But I do know that I have to answer the call.

As an unschooling Mom, most of my time goes toward nurturing my family and myself so that I can do the best job that I can. Waves of "productivity" push forward batches of beautiful things ready to do their work elsewhere. In little pockets of time and with some luck, I get items ready for sale, photographed, and listed. That's where you come in. Choosing from this shop means choosing passionate workwomanship. And I thank you.

You can see videos of my belly dance performances on my YouTube channel: TribalBellyDance.

Namaste.

Welcome to my world! Things may not always seem focused here, but that is simply not true. I'm very focused on many different things. :)

What's up with the name? I am a Belly Dancer- Belly. I do mixed media/altered art- arts. I'm a Mama to a toddler and a doggie- Mama.

I love history and objects with history. My favorite part of a museum near where I grew up was the top floor (attic?) full of old, antique toys. It was creepy and I liked it. I also played in graveyards and read all the Little House books.

So, most of my collage sheets are of vintage/antique photos I've collected. I've edited them so that they are clearer- not so many scratches or spots. But I've left in the character of an old photo. Left most of the history so it's digestible and usable, but still has soul.

I love nature and natural materials.

So, you'll see different things here at different times- whatever is most important at the moment. It's all part of being a free spirit, following your heart and trusting intuition. I invite you to enjoy the ride! :)
