About Me

My photo
I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.

Weekend @ Canton, Tx.

We went to Canton this past weekend and had a BLAST. I found some wonderful pieces for my art.  I bought old pictures to use in my mixed-medias, I found old jewelry, old door hardware, old books,  and so much more.  It is a treasure trove of goodies.  I even found an old egg scale and animal skulls (for my assemblage).  I have been so busy playing "catch-up" that I haven't had a chance to take pics of all of my goodies--but I will. 

Elvira--Queen of Steampunk.  One of my Assemblage pieces



The piece above is one of my steam punk assemblage pieces.  I found an old animal skull in the pasture and used that for the head, copper flashing (that has been burned to give it a wonderful patina) gears, dowels, and the use of epoxy clay--(I love that stuff) to hold it all together. If you do assemblage and you have never used epoxy clay, you will love it!  It is a two part mixture that you use in equal parts.  When it dries, it is very hard and durable.  Great for assemblage pieces.
