It's All About Me

My photo
Old enough to know better, but at age 50 I started a second career as a Mixed Media Artist. Inspired by a friend who suggested I research Altered Art I found what I do, and what I need to feed my muse. I have been published* I have been purchased* I have been SOLD! at an exhibit* I have been invited to share and teach* I have been blessed that I have friends who "get it";

Born 2B Wild

give me some fabric and a beat up motorcycle jacket

a couple of clocks

a plywood "aerobic step" from my dancing days

who knows what will happen??

Sometimes, I get a funny feeling deep inside

where does this stuff come from?

nothing was purchased for this project

it was not in a group

it was not stored together

it was just a 'thing' that happened in a few hours

when my dh says "what did you do today?".. lol

Pussie Galore & Lamp post

um.. a slutty cat and her lamp post for my daughter k8.. I called her a tart kitty

she and her friend re-named her...

Drop Box

what can I say?

When you find a poor stuffed cat at the resale shop, ya gotta DO SOMETHING

K8 gave up her kitty kat Bubba, so I had to MAKE her another one..

she totally freeked out.. what an apartment warming presant MOM!???

There goes another piece of me


As wrinkled and messy as freezer wrap can be, shiny side in.

I assume I am going to move the entire thing to another box covered with brown wrap,
and make another layer to put a clock face somewhere

I do have options.. just not "finished" because I don't see it as finished?

almost had to toss something at Lucykitty, she was trying to get me to go fill her dish
and I keep getting a cats tail "tickling" my knees and cat claws as she steps on my feet

ignore her? never!!

There goes another slice of me...

Envelope art

this did translate into a full size collage : there goes another peice of me

shipping box broken down and flattened
wrapped in freezer paper and packing tape
doodled on to "decorate" my package

envelope "reproduced" a few times

now what is missing? oh a clock!

what this really represents..

another piece of me.. in the mail


The gift of time and c debe art..

Lovely deco style clock face "borrowed" to me from clock wizard Roger Wood..
I have played with the clockface of course
my c debe art is a "doodle design" from envelope art ..

I thought it fit just exactly right on the clock face

The clock face is nestled in a rescued lid from an antique compote dish.
Lucykitty's first fatality. I didn't know she could jump on the mantle.

I have moved the lid around the house for 11 years...
and finally had a WOW moment.. it houses the clock works beautifully!

To "hide" it in the glass lid I have a nest of gold shimmery netting.. lol


started out as envelope art
but moved on to an 8 x 10 canvas board

it is actually a "standing book" I made a "stand" for it from soft wire

it is sitting at a friends house near her sewing table where she also
creates jewelry

she creates lovely gardens also!

found a good use for the ear rings bought at a thrift store! they add a little sumpin...

envelope art

fun and sunny
made to brighten up a bedside table or desk
sent to a friend after a bleak winter
working watch of course

She is damaged but still beautiful

Carried this doll around with me for 37 years, shoved in this or that box.

In her first life she was a "telephone doll"

Now she is a "gift of time"

dis a sembled

de con structed

re-surfaced and re-dressed

perched on a candle stick

Her altered life will be lived in South Carolina, at my mothers house.
Returning home so to speak

c debe art

damage done

Sorry that I have been missing in action ..

I am well and working and when not creating art.. I am thinking about it anyway.

Been without internet, that was horrid.

Training my new boss, or actually re-training myself?  It is going to be fun fun fun!
old dog and new tricks... kwim?

I need to find the pictures of my latest stuff and post..
