"MAGGIE" is another of my junk art pieces. I found the piece of wood on the beach. After painting it green, I then embellished with beads, buttons, wire, jewelry and small pieces of wood. I really enjoy searching the beach for "treasures". You never know what you might find. We are headed to the Florida coast for New Years - I hope I have some good finds.

This is one of my favorite small pieces. ( 5 inches x 5 inches) It is a vase of flowers, but most people think that it is a tree.

"IDA" is one of my junk art pieces.

I found a palm frond on the beach when Tropical Storm Ida was passing through Florida. After painting and embellishing with lots of buttons and old jewelry, "Ida" was created.

I love to make creations out of pieces of wood that I find on the beach. You never know what they might become.

"The Migraine"

This fiber art piece is called "The Migraine". You can see the tears on her face. I have had many migraines lately, so I know how she feels.

Hello everyone!

This is my first post. I'm new to blogging and I have just started reasearching blogs. So please be patient while I try to figure this out.

I am mainly a Fiber Artist, but also enjoy creating other things. I like to create with found objects. I have masks made from driftwood found on the beach. I like to add bright paint and embellish with jewelry and other items.

I was introduced to Fiber Art by Susan Sorrell from Greenville, South Carolina. I saw her work and was amazed. She is such an incredible artist! I later took a class from Susan and I am continously inspired by her talent.

My Fiber Art is all hand sewn. I like bright colors and use them whenever I can. I start with fabric and add paint, beads, buttons, thread, jewelry, and anything else I can attach. I usually mount each completed piece on canvas so it is easy to hang. I spend a lot of time on each piece and they are all one of a kind.

This is a small 5 inch x 5 inch butterfly. I embroidered and then added beads. This piece took about 15 hours to complete.
