Halloween vibrates this year, humming through the air on crackling currents. Three, her favorite number, three sisters, three balls of clay, a trio of trouble. 

Night after night fragments filled her dreams with wings and tiny Mary Jane shoes. She laughed while gathering parts and digging through boxes of myriad possibilities. A face, two sparkling eyes and there it is – life, oh joyful life. 

Holding intent and purpose in her heart, she suddenly expelled a great sigh of forgotten breath and the girls began to titter – that feather, this flower, those filigree sleeves please. Jessica took the favored skull with crystal eyes. Claudia claimed the polka-dot hat and tilted it jauntily over one eye. Always the show-off, little sister, Maggie insisted on purple hair and gold baubles. 

Bless their little black hearts. 

Custom hook included. 5"- 6" from nose to tips of toes. approx. 5" high not including hook. Weight ranges from 2.5 – 4 oz in weight.

Peony's Wine Down Time

After a long day flitting about spreading love and joy over the grapes in her vineyard, it's time for her to enjoy the bounty of her harvest.

Peony's body is a winged gourd. She is barefoot and lounges gracefully on a shoe that was one day found under the winery arbor. They say that the busy business woman who wore it stopped by for one little taste of wine. One taste led to another and another. The more she tasted the more she fell in love with the vineyard, its neat rows and lovely clusters of purple grapes. She fell in love with the blue sky splashed by puffy clouds and the green hills that swelled and dipped to the horizon.

From what I'm told the more she tasted the more of her tailored clothing fell away – first it was her shoes and then the suit jacket and soon enough she was completely unbound. Before anyone could blink twice a great gust came whipping through the arbor and blew it all away. All that was left to let anyone know she was ever there was one pointy-toed shoe.

Peony our wine diva is now on display at Nothing But Love in Paradise. She's looking for a new home with a wine loving family.


The creature’s skull was a gift to me.

Bleached white by time out of mind.

It’s old soul leaving the vague imprint of a once glorious life in green pastures

Intricate shapes, crevices within the under-structure formed a clear image… A woman, she seemed to be reaching up and summoning the powers.

I called her Solara because she came alive again during the Solar Eclipse.

Something came to me as I worked on her and trying to give words to the powerful feeling seems weak, but I will try in my feeble way to convey the message. 

It was not only Solara by herself, but I felt a world of Solaras, calling forth and joining in open-armed welcome to the change that is upon us.

The power of this great joining together said… Do not fear this but brace yourself – On the great Wheel, this entropy, this falling apart and chaos is the gateway to change and you are in the eye of it as escorts. This is what we all came here to do. Stand strong in gratitude and surrender to the forces that will bring down existing structures.

Birdie's Babies

Born of a certain dancing rhythm, and unknown desire, Birdie's babies flock on her skirts and fly forth from the wild nest of her hair. They dance far and wide, they coast on thermal gusts. They touch down near the unsuspecting ones, the ones looking up, the ones seeking inspiration. They are named Muse.

Birdie's body is a winged gourd. Her dancing platform is the impeller (from a pick-up truck). 14" high

Healing Tree – a mobile

When you feel their pain, but are powerless to help, cup a heart –the symbol of love– in your hands and say a little prayer. You may not see it, but a fine thread of your light is imbued into the heart and with your intent is sent out to those in need for the highest and best outcome.

Art of the Shoe

This art form begins as called Assemblage. A high-heeled shoe becomes the base of inspiration. Found objects are assembled on the shoe to create a compelling design. In this series a layered painting technique is applied to the design, lending the sense of an unearthed antiquity.

Scorpio Rising

Let the flames destroy my Scorpio
Let the forces of despair drive her deep into the underworld
Let her lie there – death-like – for three years
Let those forces breathe oxygen on the small ember still smoldering in her center.
Let the breath whisper “UP”
… And surely she will rise.

Peaceful Victory

The artful life of a woman.

Assemblage art

Cocktail Hour

Put on your crusty ole high heels and dance with the Flamengos

Second Sight

The ability to see in the dark, to be wide awake, to navigate life by the stars and the instinctual nature. The ability to discern the truth.

Soul of the Crone
She made a boat by whim of the crone
No common thing; cast of ancestral bone
Briny currents and turbulent sea
Stole her love and set her free
Tears, her course for chapter end
She turned brave face into the wind
No turning back, no left-undone
She would go back from whence she’d come

Assemblage art, of wood, clay, bones, shells and shoe. A special painting technique gives the "unearthed" effect. Includes a custom sconce.

18" high (includes sconce), 13" wide, 4.5" deep

Rain Dance

Her mouth parched and skin as dry as sun bleached bone, Branch rose from her bed and began to move  – a slow stumbling dance at first, stiffened by a long sand-dune sleep. Then she felt it, moisture, oh blessed moisture, a balm to her scratchy throat. A tapping reached inside her mind, a drop here, a drop there, then a rhythmic patter on the pillow where she’d lain. Rushing thoughts of water cascaded over river rocks and caused small green babies to bud forth from her sinewy branches. And she danced that way, fluidly on the undulating wheel of time – as if it had always been so – a pure dance of love and gratitude.

Made from the base of a small tree with partial roots that died, attached to a twisted piece of driftwood. Polymer clay face, hands and stabilizing feet at base. Flowers and leaves of polymer clay attached with wire. Adorned with crystal and glass beads.

Approx 9-1/2" tall

Pick Me Up ~ The Oak-Ball Family Dilemma

How many times have I walked past these balls lying on the ground, discarded by a giant oak tree, in the back of my mind seeing little people lying there waiting to be picked up by this crazy artist.

May I present Mr. & Mrs. Oak-Ball and their baby boy Huey Oak-Ball. Baby Huey wants to be picked up. He grew so fast this year that Mom & Dad can't get their short arms around him. What to do, what to do.

Their little home is a cut away box 9" wide 8.5" high

Love Bugs

I can't resist these girls. They are so much fun to make and each one has a personality all their own. When I hang a new one on a hook in the row with the others, they all start tittering excitedly about her. Giving one as a gift always brings smiles. Great as Christmas Ornaments. Faces, arms and legs are polymer clay. The wing material varies (polymer clay, feathers, hand painted aluminum, netting) depending on personality. Each one has a small heart hanging from her left wrist.  They have come to spread the love.

Custom hook included. 5"- 6" from nose to tips of toes. approx. 5" high not including hook. Weight ranges from 2.5 – 4 oz in weight.

Eaves Art
Always the recycler, I made these from the old aluminum skirting panels which hung like loose teeth around our fixer-upper - later graduating to sheet aluminum. I cut the aluminum into shapes, sanded off layers of old paint and repainted. I then drilled holes for decorating and securing recycled jewelry and beads. Both sides are decorated. Hanging from the patio eaves, they catch the breezes and turn slowly, sun glinting off crystals and glass beads.

Island Breezes
Adorned with seashells, green agate earrings, polymer clay flowers, colored pearls, she takes us back to the slow rhythm of the Islands

14" high x 10" wide

Octopus's Garden

"I'd ask my friends
To come and see
An octopus' garden
With me"

"I'd like to be
under the sea
in and Octopus's Garden
with you."
~Ringo Starr~

The creatures and reef dwellers are made with a new polymer clay I am using which is resilient and resistant to breakage. I purchased resin aquarium reef, couldn't resist. I saw it, had to have it!
