About

'Alt-ernative Art'

The name of my shop has a dual purpose. First, it is a playful take on my last name. But more importantly it describes the types of items shoppers are likely to find in my shop. I tend to be an 'outside the box' kind of person, so suffice it to say that the items I make are a little out of the ordinary.

I have ADHD and always have a million ideas running through my head. Every now and then I'm able to catch a few of them and create something new - usually out of upcycled items. Since I like so many diverse things and like to try new techniques and materials, one never knows what they may find in my shop.

I'm also a 'collector' of little bits and pieces and love to use these found object treasures in my artwork. Each tells a story of its own.

    I am primarily a self-taught artist. I like to explore many mediums and techniques – most of them non-traditional. Since I tend to “think outside the box”, I prefer such art forms as collage and assemblage. I also make jewelry, journals & mosaics.
