My art studio

My art studio is in my basement. The basement is nothing fancy, it gets wet in a few spots when it rains heavy. I finally built a wall down the end of the open half so my art can stay in one central spot. I have a habit of working wherever I plop down. This keeps me and all my art STUFF contained to these four walls.

I have it fairly organized which for me is a huge thing! I have two huge work benches. One I got from helping an old professor move. The other is parts I dug out of a dumpster at work when they remodeled the studio set for a new look on tv. Both free. Pretty much all the other shelving and wood you see are also dumpster finds. There is a big drain in the floor that is good for spills if I had one. I can be as messy as I want!!! I got a big deep plastic sink from a farm auction last summer for anything I need water for. I love my studio, except the brown recluse that are in abundance.

Random pics

Mac makes a great poster boy! He also was used as a model for a psa for the humane society's Facebook page. He loves the attention!!

A horse of a different color...

Some random stuff


 My iPhone goes everywhere with me and I take lots of pics and videos. I also get bored easily and edit my own photos on my phone. I have over 80 cameras and editing apps. It's a virtual creative Mecca in my pocket! I also sketched old school the dog paw and my puppy. :)

Carbondale Art/Wine fair

Well we thought this fair would make us a lot of money. Boo we were wrong. We didn't even get our gas money or entry fee back out of it. It wasn't enough to make me mad but I'm not sure if I'm going to do the other fair we paid for in October? Maybe yes but with less stuff? Who knows. It didn't look like anyone was carrying bags while walking around. I think they just came for the wine. But chalk it up to experience and you never know till you try!

Funky leash holders

I started making these leash holders and they are now in a local awesome new pet store. They can be custom made to your pets name!

Some new showings...

I showed last year in an all female art show last year and also got invited back this year. This is a strong showing! I used the mixed media retro piece. The little guy DEX was my piece for my monthly showing in the local arts co-op. I love this guy!!
