Metal & Mud

Trying to get back to my metalsmithing roots these days.  I started my art making career in metal. Well, not exactly. I was a painter first. I painted all through high school & college.

Moving Right Along

Moving Right Along

Just back from Chicago One of a Kind Show. I fell in love with Chicago & the people we met there. My sister, Michelle came with me to set up the show, & worked the first day with me. I could not have done this without her, thanks Chelly! This is such a great show, […]

Thank You!

Have you hugged an artist today? And by hugged, I mean supported (although we like hugs, too). dictionary.com defines support this way: “something that serves as a foundation, prop, brace, or stay.” So, those who support independent artists, & all “mom & pops” are our FOUNDATION- the means by which we ‘stay’.

Fall is coming. Any day now. I can see it in the way the sunlight dapples down through the Oaks & Pecan trees on my block. It is always autumn’s first harbinger for me, the shadow play lets me know that soon…..maybe not soon enough…but soon, the heat will give us a break, & I […]

my interview with wholesalecrafts.com as featured artist

In addition to this website, I have a wholesale site for gallery owners & buyers. (One of the reasons I stay too busy to spend much time on my blog!) The work I sell there is mainly my ‘dysfunctional functional line’.  I don’t sell any of the bigger work, because they are each done as […]

Something to Say

I thought that title might spark some brilliant thoughts that have been percolating since the new year began…. but my head is “muddy” from the retrieving  end of a cold, & words aren’t coming easy today. Gallery orders are coming in. This is great, it means it was a good holiday season for sales, & […]
