Watercolor on watercolor paper. This hangs right by our back door. It remind’s us that wishes can be fun.
A few years ago I found a marble top that was junked and thrown away. It was forgotten in my attic for many years.
In 2019 a family friend was throwing away an old sewing machine that must have been used in New Haven, CT when manufacturing was prominent.
I re-purposed the industrial sewing machine base and added the marble countertop.
Some would say furniture is art. The Yale Art Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC have extensive furniture collections.
This is titled Birth “Pregnant Junk Lady”. It was created in 2007 after I became a mother.
I used junk metal. The techniques include laser cutting, welding, annealing and hammering.
We have a distressed shed in our backyard that we call “Le Chic Shack”. I painted the door red and it seemed to transform the shack from an eyesore to the perfect back drop for pictures! Can a door be transformed to be a work of art?
Created in 2019. This is acrylic paint on canvas. Words were penciled in. Layers of light paint were used before a matte black paint was put on. A final gloss was put as a top layer once everything was dry to protect and give the painting a good sheen.
This art piece looks simple, but painting and drying in layers takes patience.
We have this by the main door we use to enter and exit our house. It reminds us to just be happy.
When I first met Michael in 2001 I was inspired. By 2002 I knew he was the one. Mahal kita means I love you in Filipino.
This painting is acrylic and lead pencil on regular sketch book paper.
Hammered, welding details and discolored by outdoor elements. This is called the land fish. Created in 2002.
Art has always been an important part of my life. Aside from having fun offering you items that I find to sell (helps to support the art habit!), I will also post doodles, musings, art, etc. Enjoy!
