Handmade, one-of-a-kind necklace made from beads and wire spirals on a leather chain. Bead colors are green, purple, and black. 12 inches long.
|I get my inspiration from lots of sources, including museums and galleries, magazines and books, items in shops, art classes, other artists, and dreams.
My studio is filled with plastic, wooden, and metal objects; beads and buttons; fabrics and ribbons; textured and colored papers; and images from magazines and junk mail.
I constantly teach myself new techniques, experiment with ways to work with different materials, and share ideas with fellow artists. I use found objects and recycled materials to create mixed media and three-dimensional artwork. Many of my pieces come about serendipitously, trying one thing and ending up with something unexpected and wonderful.
