About

You can't spell Earth without the word Art

It was always my dream to do art full time so when my kids were all grown up and on their own it was finally my turn. Being an avid environmentalist and a portrait painter I was led to the world of faerie. I studied other faerie artists like Arthur Rackham, Brian Froud and Linda Ravenscroft among others. I experimented with different media and took myself out to the woods often for inspiration.

Something that always captured my imagination was the way a simple cavity in a tree could look like a dwelling for a little creature. My mind would conjure up images of tiny (and not so tiny) faeries living in these places. I had a deep desire to duplicate them and add things to make them seem like real homes for the little ones. So during one of my artistic blocks I sat down and made a crude little house out of all natural materials gathered on one of my many woodland strolls. I glued the top on and realized that I couldn't see any of the neat stuff I had put inside. So I cut a hole in the back and stuck a twinkle light in and the magic happened! My first few houses had electric lights in them but they soon proved to be a fire hazard so I replaced them with battery run lights. After the first house was done my artistic juices got flowing and I made another, then another…and before I knew it my studio was cluttered with all these little houses vying for space with my paintings. So I gave a few away and was told that these little houses would sell if I tried. So I took some to the my next arts and crafts sale and sold 10 of them. I was hooked and Faerie Earth Art was born.

I spend a lot of time walking natural places searching for the raw materials that go into my houses. Sometimes I find things at garage sales and flea markets, like silk flowers, ribbons, lace or pretty paper to use as well. My goal is to make all the homes out of at least 99% found and recycled materials as well as making all my products come as close to that same goal. I spent a lot of my past delving into the fiber arts so I have a huge supply of fabrics and yarns to choose from as well which has prompted me to add Enchanted Wear to my shop. It is very important to me to do everything in my power to keep as much trash out of the landfills and to live as environmentally responsible on this earth as I possibly can. I make new clothing out of old clothing, faerie wings from old wire coat hangers, and vegetable oil lamps from used jars. I like to make beauty from ugliness and new things from old. I have so many ideas for new things that I doubt my shop will ever get boring. And you can be sure that all those new things will be made from something that was saved from the landfill and helps to make the faeries smile because after all, they are the stewards of this land right along with us and when we do our part to make this earth a happier place smiles, faerie and human alike are always the result.
