It is my WISH that my art will give hope.
My art is truly a labor of love......I simply must create art.
I find comfort when I discover a quote, proverb or scripture that speaks to me. I have always loved sweet pretty things, so that is why I create illustrations to accompany these special words.
My art gives me happiness and enhances my faith... and I feel it is my purpose in life to share this with others. That is why I have created my shop. I hope my art will bring that same faith, comfort and happiness to others.
My journey into the art world began as a child with a love for gluing this...sequins, beads, yarn, glitter, gravel...onto that...wood, cardboard, boxes, cloth and felt. My second love was reading...books, billboards, magazines and cereal boxes...anything with words. I have been collecting quotes and words that move me for many years and since I have been creating art for most of my life, it was a natural evolution to combine my two loves.
All art is made entirely by hand and incorporates a saying or proverb that conveys a jewel of wisdom. I work on canvas paper and watercolor paper in a variety of mediums that include acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, watercolor pencil, ink and anything else that intrigues me. Whimsical embellishments and doo-dads are added to make each one of a kind piece.
The Faith Pennies collection reminds us to have faith because God is always with us. Knowing this, we have all we will ever need...guidance, strength, peace, courage and love. Every penny I spot and pick up, reminds me that God is with me.
Each piece is created on 8" x 10" Claybord using papers that have been printed using Epson ultrachrome inks. The papers were my original hand painted papers or decorative specialty papers. Each piece of the collage is cut by hand, enhanced with various mediums including Gelatos and Souffle pens, and hand stamped with a proverb. The 3/4" cradle is collaged with vintage hymnal paper and stamped washi tape. A bezel is attached holding a 2012 penny, the year the piece was created. The bezel attached to the bottom of the piece includes a scripture message.
