I LOVE TO MAKE ARTWORK THAT MAKE PEOPLE SMILE.

I have been creating my artwork for 23 years and loved every moment of it.
My work is most often placed in favorite spots in the house. My customers tell me that they place my work in window sill, on bookshelves, tables, mantels and most often my Rock Hens are placed in the kitchen. They say that there's something funny about the little hen with the egg that make them smile.

All my work is original. I use carefully selected River Rocks to create one of a kind pieces of Artwork incorporating humor into each rock's characteristic.

I utilize Polymer Clay and Acrylic paint and each piece is varnished to protect the painting and to bring out the color in each rock.

Each piece is signed by me and I COPYRIGHT all my work.

Thank you and please check back often for newly listed artwork.

About

From Rocks to Riches

People always ask me : how did you ever come up with the idea of creating chickens made of rocks?

Well, once upon a time as I was walking along a river bed searching for rocks for my "Petrified Pets" I discovered a rock that was shaped like a chicken. Well, at least I thought so. I have always thought that chickens are very humorous and have a great variety of expressions.

The year was 1995 and I was living in Montana with my husband. I brought the rock home to my studio and the " Rock Hens" were born.

I've been selling my Artwork for 22 years through Arts and Crafts shows, Galleries and Gifts Shops throughout the United States.

I love every aspect of creating my Artwork. From searching and discovering the perfect rock to bringing it to life with humor, paint and clay.

I'm always looking for rocks with character such as color, texture and shape. Each rock literally tells me what it wants to become.

My husband and I have since moved to Portland, Oregon where I continue creating and selling my work.

I hope you enjoy browsing in my store.
