Hoping for Shows!

It’s been tough not being out at Art and Craft Shows for all of 2020. This is how I spend the majority of my time, and really miss getting to do in person events.  But, you can Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see what shows I may be at in the future. Thank you for your support!

Our new little Tempo the Conductor Penguin

This little penguin is a joint work created for LUMENOCITY in Cincinnati, Ohio.  He is all set with his name, Tempo, and CSO (Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra) stitched on his chest. He is also sporting a smart little bow tie and, of course, holding his conductor stick! He is being sold exclusively at the Bravo Shop! Which is located inside Music Hall in OTR.

He is available in two sizes. First is a 10″ plush with removable hand painted wood conductor stick selling for just $25. The other is a smaller ornament sized penguin selling for just $12.

In the Studio: Making Groundhogs…

Making more Grounghogs today! I have been busy collecting sweaters and have found the right ones. I try my best not to buy sweaters. I have been getting a lot of sweaters donated, I think people really like the idea of donating materials in the name of art. I want my critters to be upcycled from clothing that could not otherwise not be worn. I look for holes, misshapen, and shrunk sweaters. For materials I can not upcycle from clothing I try my best to use recycled goods like Eco fi felt that was made from recycled plastic bottles. My goal is create goods that are made from sustainable materials and possible helping less items from ending up in the landfill.
