cheap and cheerful

My greeting cards are back in stock at SEASONS.

I also added 3 new designs: 
"two sisters", "wise women", and "bird watchers"

People always ask about artist's influences and, 
often, the sources are surprising!
I know smoking is wrong (and I don't even smoke)
but I have collected 1920's smoking flapper objects for years.
They're so sassy, liberated and BAD, 
I think they've become a muse for me of sorts.

Cubeb smokers.

Sometimes they even directly influence my artwork:

"The Hazards of Smoking"
Vaudeville series 2004

birthday centerpieces

I just finished this piece for a golden birthday party.
She's a little over 19" tall.

Check out my face book link 
to see how messy things got in my studio 
when she was being made.

This b-day gal was commissioned for a 40th birthday,
but I think she's definitely suitable for everyday.

"lucky 40th"
