About me

Industry Arts
Location Maine, United States
Introduction I am a mixed-media/alternative artist and commercial designer with a BFA in Illustration. My husband and I live in a big white farmhouse on Windy Hill Farm in a quiet part of Maine. I am constantly inspired by the picture-perfect mountain vistas from my studio windows. The corn fields sway in a serene way and the sunsets are awe-inspiring. But as much as I am constantly amazed and inspired by Mother Nature, I have to admit I also have a fascination with the creations of man. Junky antiques, rusted metal pieces, old doll parts, antique glass glitter, teeny tiny miniatures, found objects and absolutely any type of paper ephemera…these things make my heart flutter! We founded NavelJelly Studios, a mixed media & alternative art supply company with the mission to provide like-minded souls with quirky, unique products. We also host an annual retreat, ART in the ROUGH - Art Retreat for Women. If you enjoy creating, celebrating simple pleasures and want a truly unique experience...join us for a fabulous weekend of funky art & friendship. Please visit our website for more information
