New work

Just in time for Fresh Paint
the wonderful 
Arts Festival 
on the Everett Waterfront!
These Sea Love creatures were fun to create.  
Whimsical, simple, yet full of layers and details if you look close enough.

More long-necked ladies!

and bad cats.....

There is a story behind the cats. You'll have to stop by my booth today at Klahaya Days
or at Fresh Paint to find out.  These crack me up, some are kinda nasty...
but so are cats in general  :)

I will for sure be making more.
If you have a cat quote to share....  please do!

Art Camp!

Could there possibly be anymore fun than taking a 
discarding book and arting it up?
One of my favorite things about this kind of work, 
is that it is all a grand experiment!

It's ok to mess up, try a new technique----
just see what happens

It's not too late to register your kiddos 
or yourself!  

June 24th-27th, 10-3 for the kids
and July 12th-13th, 10-5 for the adults

we will be painting, collaging, stamping, sewing and all manner of mixed media stuff.
plan on getting messy and experimenting!

Sign up soon, the kids camp is just 2 weeks away!

playing in a book that would have been thrown away is simply just being green.
it's the ultimate in recycling!

remember, altered books are not junk....

Farm chicks prep

I am an artist
I am a junker
oh...  I so love the vintage stuff

My fingers do this little dance 
when I forage and find 
that inspirational 

Often, I get an eyebrow raised.  
Oh well.

this one i got really excited about, 
like afraid to look anyone in the eye because i had this plan.

Still working on the little stuff. 
but, my engineer is happy (the hubby)
and i love the mismatch lovely-ness.

Can't wait for the Show.
See ya at farm chicks

Just a bit ODD, in a good way

Some new work (not really work though)
I've been playing, experimenting, and splashing color.

It feels good to play.
