The Little Things

This week, for some reason, has felt especially trying. Every day there has been something. It’s that crazy every day life stuff that can wear one down by the time Friday hits. In the midst of it all it’s often difficult to find peace or sanity or humor.

I created this piece of art a few months ago for a show. Yesterday I looked at it and decided to leave it out where I could see it as a reminder of the good stuff. The little things really do make a big difference.

Happy Friday and here’s to a peaceful, fun weekend…

New Art on Etsy

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and art, like love, is original and enduring. These small mixed media assemblages make the perfect gift for someone special or for yourself! All are made with vintage paper and found objects on salvaged wood.

Gearing Up…

   
 
Hurricane Irma wasn’t all bad – I salvaged some great fence boards to use for my smaller art. This means plenty of new inventory for the upcoming Atomic Holiday Bazaar in December. Can’t hardly wait…

Did Someone Say Paper?

FullSizeRender-13

I love paper. It almost doesn’t matter what kind. My mom has even made up a word for me – she says I am a “paperian.” I have indiscriminately collected writing paper, notebooks and blank journals that I just couldn’t stand to leave behind. But I especially love vintage paper – stamps, receipts, letters, postcards, tickets, maps, sheet music, playbills… It is absolutely fascinating to me. I love the color of old paper and the way the paper feels and the way the ink has faded in places. It ranks right up there with rust in its beauty. But I really love that there is a story behind these items. Each piece makes me wonder about who it belonged to and why it was saved and how it has survived in the world for so long and how far it has traveled to reach me. And when I can actually stand to part with a certain piece of this ephemera, I incorporate it into my art and send it back out into the world so it can continue its wondrous journey…
