About WillOaksStudio

On Etsy since 2008

A Long and Winding Road

History: After many years of wandering the U.S. and the world, I landed back where I began: on the family farm here in northern Illinois. It’s so beautiful here and nature has long inspired and informed my artwork in many media: sculpture, papermaking, photography, and for the past few years-wearable art. WillOaks is the name of my studio, and also of our farm & seasonal family campground.

Wearable art has been a natural extension for me because I love to wear jewelry. Making it to suit my vision and ideas has been a fascinating journey. Most of my pieces are original because that's how I think....and I am happy to share them with anyone who would like to be different from "the crowd." Original pieces for original women.

I have a BFA in printmaking from Washington University, St. Louis and an MFA in sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ve been very fortunate to win 2 national and 2 state National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, a Fulbright fellowship, and many awards for my sculpture and installation work featuring handmade paper and mixed media. The Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery acquired one of my large installations in 2006 where it will be installed periodically.

I’ve created artist’s books for many years and these are in several collections nationally and internationally. I’ve been a professor of fine art sporadically, as the opportunity presents itself. These days, I'm mostly focused on my studio work, which is a lovely place to lose myself as often as possible. I love to try new things but strive to bring focus, excellent craftsmanship, and my personal vision and interpretation to anything I do create with the hope it will inspire, provoke, or bring pleasure to my fellow human beings…I thank you personally for your interest in my work!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your interest and if you choose to do some shopping with me, I'll do as much as I can to make your experience a great one! I strive to use excellent materials and techniques and am happy to explain and describe what I do as much as possible--if something isn't clear, please contact me directly.

I have a stand-alone website at http://www.WillOaks.Studio I move seasonal pieces there if you’re looking for a listing that isn’t here on Etsy. And most of the listings here are also listed there. You’re welcome to checkout as a guest there, even tho the site is hosted by Etsy & they handle payments.

Unless noted otherwise, silver metal used (wire, findings, beads) is solid sterling or fine silver--Silver plated findings have been included where needed and where cost is an issue. Gold is 14-20 gold filled with a core of jeweler's brass--by weight, gold filled is 20% gold and is much thicker than plated gold.

I'm so happy for the wonderful customer support I've received here as I approach my 12th year on Etsy. Thank you! I'm always convo-friendly to answer your questions and to hear your comments.
