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 nest is empty...

Well, it has been two weeks since
the Mourning Doves little ones hatched.
We are now experiencing our first 
"empty nest syndrome".

I did see mom, dad and the two youngsters
in the yard as I was walking Paddington
this morning. One youngster even stuck around 
for a while to check out Paddington!


As promised, I wanted to share images
of the finished Tall Clocks and the
Heart Hand Held Mirrors. I will be posting them at soon and will also
post them in my Etsy Shop.


A new venture for me...I have been asked to join the 
"Resident Artists Program" 
at The Homespun Garden Shoppe on Etsy.
My pieces will be featured and they
will be celebrating "Christmas In July"with
a special offer on Saturday, July 25th!
(My birthday)

Please take a moment to visit
The Homespun Garden Shoppe on Etsy!


Sometimes it pays to have 
been a graphic designer for 32 years.

I am working on a new business card
and a tri-fold brochure so that I have something to
hand out when I do my first show this Fall.

I will be at the American Artisans Show in
Wilton, CT. on November 6-8, 2015.

I hope to see you there!!!!!


As you may know, I have started a Go Fund Me campaign
in order to cover the costs involved in 
traveling to and from the show...gas, rental van, 
hotel, booth fees, folding tables, etc.
and the supplies needed to create more pieces
for this upcoming show and a couple other shows that
have approached me. It seems the only way
to grow my business and gain the exposure I need
to keep moving forward is by doing a few
high quality shows with other more established
artisans of a high quality.

Any donations are greatly appreciated and feel free
to share this link with others who
appreciate the arts and quality Folk Art/Tramp Art.
