About the Artist

That would be me on the right. I’ve always been artsy and had my hands in creative writing, sewing, needlework, design, paint and other messy stuff as long as I can remember, including renovations of Victorian-era homes, but that’s another story.

For over thirty years, I was actually first and foremost a music director, as expounded upon on my original blog here.

I’m from a (formerly) very rural part of NW NJ where the 1980 census showed that there were more head of cattle than humans in our county while I was in school. A country girl in her element in a pair of jeans, t-shirt and sandals, I wound up here in Florida because I really hate being cold. I had the opportunity to spend the first year here by the Gulf setting up shop and beginning my sculpture projects to combine several loves: animals and working with my hands. In addition to custom work, I taught a sculpture class using recyclable materials at our local senior center. I have also painted storefront windows, helping local businesses in my town to draw in more customers.

I grew up in a multi-generational home where I often heard the adage, “waste not, want not.” Recycling, re-using and re-purposing has been a lifestyle for me my whole life, and I am very happy to be able to create sculptures using cast-off items and turning them into things that make people smile. My life has usually revolved around my pets, and it is only right that I dedicate my days to working in a medium that celebrates both mine and other people’s pets as I create sculpted likenesses of pets past and present. I am one of those who didn’t have children; I had puppies. In fact, a college paper I wrote recently celebrated the parallels in raising children and puppies, which I happily share here with those visiting my site.

If I had to come up with a philosophical statement that describes my world view and who I am in essence, it would be this:
