Mystic Messenger

This mixed media collage spotlights sets my painting of favorite bird, the crow, on a background rich in texture and with a definite mystic feeling.  One of the collage elements, is a bit of hand written text where I express my admiration for these remarkable souls.

I've framed this evocative piece with recycled weathered wood.  The image size is 14" wide by 11" tall while the framed size is 17 3/4" x 14 3/4".

Fox and Grapes

My painting of ​a beautiful vixen stars in this mixed media collage.  But poor fox!  She looks so wistful.  Will she ever get those grapes?

Fascinators

I crafted this fun, colorful and happy mixed media collage around my drawings of a young woman and a marten, then added a plethora of other collage elements and a dash of humor - all to express my fascination with fascinators!  And why not?  They're all the rage, you know...

The piece is 11" wide and 14" tall.  It is intended to be hung without a frame.

Parrots in Paradise

Here's another mixed media collage.  This one features two of my paintings of parrots.

I loved working with these yummy colors and all the bits and pieces to give these sacred birds a special home.  By the way, they're orange bellied parrots which are endangered in southern Australia.

This piece is 15 3/4" wide by 24" tall.  On a cradled wooden panel, it's meant to be hun unframed.

Athena

Athena is a needle-felted owl.  I made from pure wool fiber and dressed her in a little bed jacket made from a piece of vintage bedspread.

I have her standing on a stump of olive wood, and have surrounded her with fern leaves of silk and wire.  Crystal water drops hang here and there from the fronds.

My Promise to You

Making art is an undeniable part of me so I am honored when you invite something my hands and heart have created into your home.  I make you this promise:

  • Your piece has been created with love, a light and open spirit, and unending appreciation of the animals with whom we share this earth.
     

  • I made your piece to capture a moment in a story, a story that I invite you to complete by providing your own “before” and “after.”
     

  • And in making your piece, I avoided any tools or materials whose production causes harm to an animal.  Your piece has only the most positive energies and affirms your values as a person who not only loves, but also respects, animals.
