The Madhatter & An Elephant...


I finished this whimsical mixed media piece today. Just in time for my darling sister's birthday. I had fun with the bird, outside of the nest looking in, only to find the Madhatter taking her place. Life turned upside down.I used cigar bands for the bracelets on the elephants eggs.
Pure fun and kind of crazy. Happy Birthday, Sister!

New Studio...


I have set up a large and sunny Art Studio. What a divine pleasure to have a space devoted purely to creativity. I am loving it. , I still am doing work at my studio in North Carolina, the new studio is in Maine. The space is south facing with many windows, terrific light and plenty of space to spread out and create Art.




Paintings and JOCO Boxes, are my main interest at the moment.
I love working in this new space, a bit more of the sea seems to be sneaking into my newest pieces.

Newest "JOCO" Box...


I have been so excited about the "JOCO Box" series I have been working on. This Box features a Buddhist/Mystical theme however the humor of Buddha riding on the back of a bronze elephant from the 1800's makes me smile. I also integrated paper painted fortunes, fortune sticks, shells, eggs (always sneaking in there),


a butterfly and a hand. Note the egg with the golden wing. Maybe that signifies the promise of all that is new and unknown taking hold and maybe even flight. Just a thought.
