New framed tiles and wire-wrapped seaglass pendants.



Made two of my favorite tree landscapes into framed times. A bit more affordable than the originals. :) Both are available in my etsy shop.

I also started wire-wrapping great pieces of sea glass. My grandmother used to live on an island in Lake Erie. She'd collect sea glass whenever she walked along the shore. My mom asked me if I'd like the glass and of course, I could hardly wait to look through the nearly 40 lbs. that she'd collected over the years. There are some amazing pieces of glass and I'm starting to turn a few of them into pendants. Please take a look if you love sea glass as much as I. See my etsy shop for the other sea glass pendants currently available.

Wire-wrapped SeaGlass pendants - brand new item added to my etsy shop.









My grandmother lived for nearly 50 years on an island in Lake Erie.
She visited the island several more years before actually moving
there. Each day she'd walk along the shore of the beach combing the
sand for great seashells and sea glass. While I was home for
Thanksgiving, my mom asked if I'd like to take one of the large
buckets of seaglass that my grandmother had accumulated over the
years. There must be at least 40 lbs of sea glass. I'm like a kid in
a candy store.

Granted...I've never wire-wrapped jewelry before, but I'm starting to
make items out of the sea glass and I started with pendants.

Click here to see the newest pendants.


Keep in mind that these are my very first attempts.

Thanks for looking!

Newest painting just added to my etsy shop - Clouds Out There



Newest painting just added to my etsy shop.

A minimalist abstract landscape in rich warm earthy layers of brick red, dark caramel brown, dark purple, creamy white, golden yellow, and cerulean blue. The layers of thin washes give the painting a heavenly, ethereal misty look with a beautiful cloudburst above the horizon. A modern painting with timeless appeal.

Thanks for taking a look!

Happiest of Holidays to Everyone!

3 new gifty items and designs just added to my etsy shop.



An art deco cubist design featuring a Hawaiian girl with hibiscus in her hair, floral lei around her neck and a beautiful floral printed dress sits among the waves and grass of a hawaiian skirt while seashells and hibiscus bloom behind her. Brightly-colored in teal, hot pink, lemon yellow, and mango orange on a bright red background, this design is sure to grab someone's attention. The design was done in collaboration with artist/illustrator William Densmore for consideration for print as a tshirt design. This particular image is displayed on a framed ceramic tile, but prints are also available.



A design featuring an ornate silhouette of a bird on a flirty and decorative background. The whimsical folk art design is done in black, deep golden yellow and light blue. Originally created as a graphic design for a tshirt, but I think it looks great as a wall print or a print for stationery and other gifts. I currently have this offered in my etsy store as a framed tile or on a variety of different sized prints.



A whimsical folk art design of a black and white lazy dog sleeping atop a brightly colored red and yellow striped sofa. The checkerboard floor, striped wall, and the words LIFE IS GOOD add extra elements of whimsy to the finished design. The framed tile is a great gift for the dog or pet lover on your list. Sure to bring a smile! Also available as a print, or an original in a similar style.

Thanks for looking at the newest designs and gift merchandise. I thought Marionette might like the Luau Girl! :)
