i am an artist too. i have so many mediums that i dont have anywhere near enough
time for them all.
mostly now i make things with feathers and wings, shells, and do some metal work and jewelery with beads.
but i also love to sculpt, work with pottery and other ceramics, i make paper and bookbinding, work with fabrics and batik. i used to make a lot teapots, pottery, and sculptural planting pots, handmade tree free books
, some more conventional paper blank books. those were some of the crafts that i did more frequently, before i move on to a new craft/art.
i have done all these things for money and it has been my actual job
and main source of income for most of my adult life. though its pretty tough at times, and lean, i do make a small paycheck to support my humble living.
my first art forms were painting, drumming, singing, and also i was a semi professional dancer, but that was like 4 or five lifetimes ago ! or rather, when i was much younger i loved to do acrobats and dancing and would preform, and got into fire dancing as i got older. sometimes i still do some fire dancing, just for fun =)
most of my favorite art pieces i never photographed, or are blown to the winds somewhere! but i will post some stuff i have photographed.
this is the webspace i have been working on. i really should
make some time to work on it more....
heres an old painting, of the moon:
me wearing one of my newest pieces, a feathered hair clip:
one i made for myself that i wear a lot, macaw feathers:
another clip, peacock and turquoise
i did a lot of peyote stitch and working with really intricate bead work...heres some beadweaving
star sapphire wrapped with beads, the stone is quite beautiful, which doesnt photograph right
and made a lot of jars covered with beads, some of them bigger, some small and wearable
i make these spiraling dreamcatchers, with copper, lots of feathers and wings and stones.
even though i have a gallery that will buy as many of these faster than i can make them, lately i cant seem to wrap my mind around making them anymore.
these are some of the simpler ones, i made some that had multiple pieces that spin around each other
