From August, 2014

Where it all began…….

    For a very long time,  I have made mini-food.  Sometimes out of real food, but mostly out of polymer clay.   It is the epitome of relaxation to me, and it has been a useful tool for dealing with anxiety.  Tiny projects are easy to complete,  and nothing says CUTE like tiny food.…

Mystic Window

  I can’t keep a houseplant alive, but thats not what this is about.        I had a bit of a sad moment today,  and had a vision of a mopey plant in front of a rainy window.  I thought whatever I made today would bleed with some depressing melodramatic metaphor of an…

Ship to Shore

  I have a fascination for Ships in Bottles.  I have a little collection ,  which I will share someday for my fellow enthusiasts.  This little paper and wood ship was in a teeny tiny glass christmas bulb, I got it at the dollar store.   I find it hard to stomach that these little…

Haul

When I was constructing this diorama,   my main motivation was trying to find a use for some sponge trimmings.   They looked like fallen leaves to me so, the murderer dragging a body was an afterthought…

  There is nothing that makes me more uneasy than loud and proud street performers.   Especially those whose music is walking tempo.     That being said,   I’m sending mixed messages for choosing to let this particular bench sitting busker LIVE.      

Hallucination Wolf Totem

Whiny Man

This was one of my quickie mini-therapy pieces.   If I haven’t mentioned it before (I haven’t),  a lot of the artwork I do,  is made therapeutically.    I suffer from anxiety and melodrama and therefore need an outlet.  Making miniatures is like teeny tiny problem solving and mindfulness meditation.   During a rough patch…

Cute Corpse

My mom (the genetic link to the “mini-brain”) constantly tells me I need to add *something to my photos to help the viewer understand the scale in which I Work. I really don’t want to add quarters to all my photos, so I try and get creative. I am the ultimate recycler. I didn’t kill…
