About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist
Location North Little Rock, AR, United States
Introduction I'm a redneck Martha Stewart ; a southern Erma Bombeck (ask your mom, if you don't remember her); a white trash Rachel Ashwell; and a sweet potato queen kinda-gal before sweet potato queens were cool. I've been an artist all my life. But my "real jobs" were mostly in the non-profit world. I have also been a caregiver for most of my adult life. It has been Mom, Dad, the son, the grandson or an entire community. Now it’s "my time." Those non-profit years taught me to create projects and pull off major events on shoestring budgets. Working with countless volunteers has enabled me to recognize and cultivate others' talents. I'm creating unique, fun art and teaching others to find their own creative niche. I call my style the "Art of Recycling." My inspiration comes from what I find. It might be old dishes from a flea market or a discarded fan cage at the curb on trash day. But most of my "inspirations" are found at Garage Sales. And I do love to talk. I've shared my imaginative ideas with folks throughout the South. Gotta group? Let's talk! Commissions? Let’s talk! I do personal art made with recycled materials. Go Green! Purchase art from found objects!
