My Thanksgiving Tea Party

I collaborated with two dear friends to present a Thanksgiving feast alternative.  Herbalist, Candace Liccione and Chef Debbi Dubbs helped me come up with a fabulous and intimate gathering for a small group of family and friends.  Featured on Cool2Craft TV.

I Did Not Start My Day This Way! Interactive Art

Some days you feel this way.  Life turns you all around and you can't predict how you will end up each day.  This whimsical skeleton is a reminder that, no matter where you go - there you are, and no matter what - you are who you are.

The frame back is fitted with crossed hanging wires so that it can be turned any direction.  The skelly's head is pinned beneath the glass, but as the frame is turned, the body flops this way and that.

My Inner Misbehaver is Out

“My Inner Misbehaver is Out”  is a polymer clay articulated skeleton sprawled on top of a 4" x 4" wood frame.  Her bones are "tattooed" in purple ink.  The frame is worn and decked out with fabulous paper.  A handmade ceramic moon charm is suspended from the inside top.  There's no back to the frame so your wall will show through.  Total height is about 6".  Thickness is 2".

My Art Show at the 30th Street Grounds For Coffee

I love the space Grounds For Coffee has in their 30th Street location!  It's big, but cozy and inviting.  It's always hopping with friendly locals and college kids.  I have 40 some odd pieces hung there this month.

I have a new series of pieces I'm working on.  They feature skeletons in dimensional frames.  The piece below is called Noir.  He stands beneath a lamp post, holding a lit cigarette in one and and gestures a melancholy greeting with the other, gently touching the brim of his fedora.
