Fancy Pig by my Sister, Cherry Joy

This is one of my sister Cherry's creations. She is selling Fancy on Etsy at
I have to say she has topped me with this pig. Fancy has gotten almost as many views on Etsy as both of my Jesus necklaces put together! What kind of a statement does that make???

Jack THE Candlestick Snowglobe Altered Art Doll

Jack IS the Candlestick! Jack is his own worst enemy. He is suffering from extreme opposites of Yin & Yang, Fire & Water, and he needs to find balance between them in order to find peace.

He is a republican who has suffered 8 long years of President Bush. His world as he knew it has come tumbling down around him. He wields a gun and is not sure how to use it.

Jack is made from an antique Austrian Candlestick, an antique salt shaker, & an 1800's German doll head. He is embellished with an antique toy gun, bone dice, & jacks. The dice are both face up with 4's to symbolize each term of Bush. There are 4 Jacks. He has an elephant hanging from his letter "J". A candle flame made out of an old Franks Nursery & Crafts Christmas light bulb sets on top of his "helmet". And last but not least, a mustache.

He is a snow globe filled with glow in the dark glitter. The handle can be held and the glitter can be shaken and gently but slowly swirls around. Jack is very cool.

Jack is titled and signed -by me- on the bottom.

Frida Kahlo Altered Art Doll- Snowglobe


I have always LOVED Frida Kahlo. I can relate to her on many, many levels. This is the first in a series of Frida Kahlo items that I plan to do.

Frida Kahlo is made from an antique Fiesta Ware sugar bowl, leaded crystal salt shaker, an 1800's German doll head, & a sterling silver "crown".

She is adorned with many beads, charms, and lilies. I have attached several of her works of art affixed to Gringo bottle caps. A cross with Jesus hangs from her neck. She has green mother of pearl beads around her waist and garnets around her neck. Various semi-precious stones adorn her crown along with beads that spell out FRIDA.

She has a snow globe/ water globe filed with a mix of green and glow in the dark glitters. She is mucho fantastico!

She is titled and signed by me.

Frida Kahlo

I have always had a fascination with Frida Kahlo. When the Frida movie with Selma Hayek came out a few years back, I watched it over and over. Frida was wonderful and I can relate to her on many levels. My newest artwork is in honer of Frida and I will post photos as soon as she is complete.

Uncle Sherman

From time to time I photograph my items on my Uncle Sherman chair. This chair is from my childhood and the reason it is called the Uncle Sherman chair is because, well it looks like my Uncle Sherman (rip). Don't you think?

I Am Thirsty

John 19:28 (New International Version)

The Death of Jesus

28 Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty."

A glass chandelier symbolizes one drop of water and is suspended from a sterling silver rosary medal with Jesus. Silver wire is crudely wrapped and precious stones and Czechoslovakian glass beads lead to gun metal. NO CLASP- OVER HEAD. Very nice.

The Beauty of Rain

As I sit here in my studio, I listen to the rain outside gently washing away the long, long Winter. I haven't yet closed the valves of my rain barrels so the water is pooling and echoing before it runs out the spouts. Although the day is gloomy, there is something beautiful about the rain. It is a sign of things to come. I know that my flower bulbs are getting ready to put on a show. My garlic will soon be showing signs of new growth. And, it won't be long before I have green onions a plenty. Spring will soon be here. The long winter sleep will come to an end. That is the beauty of rain.

Meet Jack the Candlestick. I just started working on him. He is suffering from Yin & Yang, water & fire, the dark and the light. He is his own worst enemy. He needs to find balance.
