Recently I saw the musical Wicked with my friends Kent and Rick. Both are lifelong friends and artists. More about Kent and Rick later....As for Wicked it was wonderful! I have always believed that the Wicked Witch is misunderstood. She resides on her broom on an entire side of my art car/truck. I make a line of OZ jewelry with Dot and the gang. Including Glenda and Elffie. So it seemed only natural to me when I wanted to make my truck an art car that I go with the OZ theme.
This is day two of my blog. I have promised myself that I will become computer savvy in 2009. Jenny Elkins is here making sure I press the right buttons. She is one of the most talented artists I know and I know lots of em. She is also a computer savant. Who knew??? Also with her many gifts she can work magic around a key board and figure out what needs to be done. So sometimes she made me close my eyes because she didn't want my little brain to get cluttered up with any more useless information that I don't need to know. Whew....I thank her for that.
January I also am going green. I have always loved art made from found objects and recycled products. I will include photos of my favorite art. I also drive an art truck which I will show you soon.......
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
