Since I retired, I have been more involved with my photography and my newly discovered passion, mixed media and assemblage art! Using found objects, trinkets, jewelry, and even some of my own photographs, I have been creating three dimensional artwork and small sculptures.
I hope you enjoy my one-of-a-kind creations!
Using an old snare drum, I have covered all four quadrants of the drum with beads, jewelry findings, chains, and charms! (See next four images for pictures of the four sides.) The drum measures 10" diameter by 6" tall. March to the Beat of a Different Drum can be yours for $125 (add $25 for shipping - it's heavy!)
"Your Eyes Met Mine" is a mixed media project with a photograph of two eyes at the base of it. The photograph has been embroidered with outline stitches around the eyes and inside the pupils. In the lower left corner, there is a collage of diamond shapes with the words "Your eyes met mine and they made it whole without touching your body I hugged your soul". This piece measures 22" square by 1.25" deep and can be yours for $99 (shipping extra)
This is my interpretation of the Metallica song "Enter Sandman". Using a shadow box, I have placed things representing "dreams of war, dreams of liars" etc. "Enter Sandman" measures 10.25" tall by 18" wide by 5" deep and can be yours for $40 (add $20 for shipping)
This piece is built on an old wooden box. Handplaced beads adorn the top of the box. It took over eight hours to place the beads! "Sunflower Mosaic Box" can be yours for $99 (shipping extra)
A scale wooden guitar modeled after the Fender Stratocaster serves as the base for my assemblage collage guitar. The base is covered with music pages, the edges, back, and some of the front painted black, and various beads and other jewelry pieces complete the guitar. Thin wire serves as guitar strings. This guitar can be yours for $89 (shipping extra)
