"ECLECTIC ELEGANCE WEST COAST STYLE"
Facebook Online Store
Childhood was spent designing clothes for Dolls, Dogs and myself. Textiles have always been a big part of life because of the influence of a seamstress grandma.
A craftsman father influenced the ability to make anything from nothing....... 3 children, 5 dogs, single parenthood, 2 professional careers and a 6 year fashion design career and even a grandson... many ups and downs
Finally the focus on self and what I really want to do.....
The last year and a half consisted of total immersion in Clay Sculpture, Lapidary, Silversmithing, Pottery and Rock Sculpting.
INTRODUCING the beginning..... Sculptural pieces of clay with a West Coast Theme.
All my Loves... WHALES, SALMON, STARFISH, SEA THINGS, OCEAN, RIVERS, BEACHES, GEOLOGY, ROCKS AND GEMS, CALLA LILIES, ROSES and CHERRY BLOSSOMS, COLLIES and HERiTAGE, MASKS, PROTECTORS, THIRD EYES, and PALM BEARS.
IMAGINATION and my LOVE of the ORGANIC NATURE OF THE WEST COAST.... is now set free.... FINALLY!!!
