Announcement    Well shit, y'all…

I was hoping to be able to post some good news about in-person shows, but this pandemic is fucking all that up! Even so, some shows are carrying on digitally… I'm still trying to figure all that out, so stay tuned!!

The good news is that I'm all set up in my AMAZE-BALLS new studio!! Seriously… it's incredible. No shit. AND I'm beginning to get back into a regular production schedule! WOOT! I'll be updating the shop as fast as I can make stuff and get it posted. Check back regularly to see what's new!

Oh and one more thing… shipping right now is FUBAR! I will do my very best to get stuff shipped to you in time for the holidays, but just keep the current state of things in mind. Thanks!

As always you all ROCK! So stay safe, keep it snarky, and for 4fucksake put on some damn pants!! 💖

Quirky from way back…

When I was growing up, other kids wanted to be ballerinas, actors, astronauts, firefighters, doctors and the like. Not me. I wanted to be an artist. I just loved to make things. Pens & pencils, paper & scissors, cloth & thread— it was all good. Just give me some materials and let me go at it! And go at it I did, trying out all manner of media throughout my life, but it wasn’t until a college foundry class that I found my true love. Up to my elbows in clay, trying to coax from it a form to be cast in bronze, I was transported to my grandmother’s backyard making mudpies in the sticky Mississippi summer. I was hooked.

Actually it was that same grandmother who inspired my latest line of work. Being a true Southern lady, she was at once kind, demure, charming, hilarious… and she cussed like a sailor. “Well shit” was one of her favorite sayings, muttered just under her breath when she burned the cornbread, aphids got her tomato plants, or the slot machine she so carefully scouted out wasn’t hitting at the riverboat casino. I try to carry with me that same sense of humor and kindness spiked with a hefty dose of her Southern spunk & sass. It always helps me to get through those “well shit” moments. Hopefully my work will help do the same for you…
