Being unique has it's own rewards. One of those rewards for me is in my Art making. I love making my own embellishments. It's one of those things that sets my Art apart. I make these items by hand and put special thought into each one. Kind of like I live my days. I wake up and think 'amongst what ever life brings today I will add ... a trip to the gym? Some glitter and glitz? A trip to nature? (Art is always a part of the equation). Whatever it is it adds more purpose, excitement and motivation to my day and has become a great daily habit for me because me and my brain have that kind of relationship.
If I speak it into the universe I have to deliver LOL.
I do have to be honest and admit that one of the things that started me on the path to making my own unique pieces and art was the feeling I had when I came across fake, attempted copies of my work (mostly jewelry). I decided then that I would work on always having something to show the unique side of me. My spirit and character goes into each piece of Art I create. It's what gives me uuumph! And as I always say Art is one of the greatest healers for me there is. Art and Nature.
I created these pieces using Air Dry Clay. I love this medium because it's pretty much no mess and easy to work with. The pieces pictured are to be added to 2 different pieces I'm working on. The small piece above is one of them.
And yes...that is real fake eyelashes in that frame with the rose head LOL
One thing my Art Collectors can be sure of is that there can be only one!

There is so much going on in this piece. Mentally anyway. This is another one of those stepping outside of my usual comfort zone pieces. I call it Queen! It's all about powerful women. Women who lead, stand strong, move forward in the face of all that could send them backward, pain, loss, life. Women who love and live and let live! Queen She!!!

That saying 'comfortable in your own skin' is real!!! If you aren't comfortable in your own skin how can you expect anyone to be comfortable with you and what you put out there. What you bring is a unique flavor because there can be only one!! So whatever skin you're wearing...WEAR IT WELL!!
I think at some point we all go through periods where we feel no hope, over stressed, confused, wondering what comes next. And because we adapt to the 'normal' tags we convince ourselves that we are depressed, that there is no sunshine, that things are not going to get better or change. When in fact, they always change... because as we know Time Moves On. I personally think it is 'normal' to feel these things occasionally because we are not perfect. I also believe that how we deal with those things determines their outcome.
These pieces reflect feeling Lost... then Found!

Living In Color with Steph Jordan
Can you imagine what this world would be like without the ability to Imagine. How could you escape the mundane, the horrifying and depressing if you couldn't see the possibilities ahead? How could you feel the intense excitement of what might be, or where you might go, of what might come?
I think our imagination is in some ways a lifesaver. It keeps us inspired and motivated. It reminds us that there is so much more out there. That the picture is so much bigger than us. It helps us bring the colorful out. It helps us connect with that inner part of us, that spirit and soul. It also helps us keep that other stuff in because we have the ability to imagine ahead.
Think about the possibilities. Use your Imagination!
|This bush was dying so I picked the remaining live flowers and dried them|
Seems to me one of the biggest mistakes we make with our present is believing that we can continue to put things off until the future. We decide to wait til tomorrow to voice our protest when we are being directly affected by the actions of others. We will wait until tomorrow to make that phone call to ask for what we need. We wait to see if things will change before we act. Most like they won't unless we act.
This piece is about being brave for you! Now! It's about taking care of your life. It's about remembering that no one can and will care about your life like you do.
It's yours. Own it
|After the flowers were dried I added them and covered them with a clear gel|
Many pieces I create come to me during the commission of some life act, simple or tough... the voice of another or the desire to express something that is burning in my soul.
I always hope my Art delivers great energy and inspiration. Each piece is an emotional journey for me. Art has always been a healing tool for me, a place to block out the drama and energy that goes with everyday life. Also a place to rejuvenate, celebrate and recreate me. For me Art is Life!
This is my current meditation piece. At 3ft x 4ft its the largest collage I've ever done.
