Tramp Art, like quilting, relies on using salvaged materials to create textures and patterns then piecing them together to make beautiful yet utilitarian
objects. While relatively unknown, Tramp Art was a wide-spread form of Folk Art that flourished in America between the 1870's – 1940's.

The Art Tramp and Martha Stewart...

I am pleased to announce that I am a
Martha Stewart AMERICAN MADE 2015 nominee in the 
Craft ~ Recycled, Upcycled & Vintage category.

Things are gearing up here in Trampland a.k.a. my studio.
I am waiting to get more materials so I can 
finish up a handful of pieces I have started. Then I plan
to start making the 40 to 50 new pieces I have 
designed in the last few weeks. 

Look for some exciting things to come...
a series of Tramp Art birds based on the illustrations
on some antique Frakturs. Other pieces include
a Pipebox/Keyholder, a Spoon Rack, a Wall Sconce,
a Lantern, a Starfish Box, more sewing boxes
a group of Limited Edition Christmas Ornaments and
some other surprises!


I want to take a moment to thank you for your 
interest in my Tramp Art. I would greatly appreciate your help 
to continue my growth and success! 

My Tramp Art pieces are one-of-a-kind works of art and I would
love for more people to experience my creations!
