Announcement   My wish is to continue to create beautiful but also fun works of art fueled by passion and imagination. I am recycling found objects and having a blast! One man's trash becomes a "Keri treasure!' So the flea markets provide me with the items needed for my work. I specialize in creating "feel good" art sculptures but I also incorporate polymer clay in many of my pieces. Most are whimsical, unique & on the FuNkY side like me!

I am an artist with Lyme Disease who was told "art would be impossible" 13 years ago. I now have made 1500 pieces
of original art.

Art & Beyond Studio
Won one of the The Publisher Choice Awards to be published and promoted in their July/August issue
