A New Obsession





A  death of a close family member and the loss of my most favorite art patron has laid me low, but I'm getting back to what uplifts my spirit.....creating beauty.  It began with my desire to draw attention to adoptable dogs.  Some shelters expressed interest in presenting their dogs with glamour shots, and so I created flower crowns.   The crowns are adjustable and fit medium sized dogs and even human heads.  Smaller dogs can wear them around their necks as leis.  Sales support donations to shelters.  For a limited time, I am offering these for $25 each.    Contact me if you wish to purchase or are a shelter   chaska@ix.netcom.com

Oh, by the way....This sweet, very patient model is my 13 year old rescued sheltie, Quincy.

Into the Light



This work which I have entitled "Into the Light" contains crystals and semi-precious stones.  Approximately 9" by 11.5", is a bit larger in size and more complex than most of my work.  It will help empower anyone going through a transition.

Raven brings the ability to bend time and space for the perfect moment at the right time.  He signifies rebirth, renewal, reflection and healing.  Raven helps with transitions and transformations, moving them along smoothly by casting light into darkness.

$250

Is It Worth It?

Art. Why Bother?


I work intuitively.
Regardless of what's going on in my personal life or in the greater world filled with fear and sorrow, my work continues the same.  I may have ideas of burning hearts, outstretched hands into nothingness, shattered bodies, but none of that ever expresses itself in my work.  I look at my finished pieces and wonder how they can express beauty, hope and peace and I think perhaps that is the message I'm meant to share.


As Picasso said,“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
Art, for one thing, consoles. It activates thinking. It troubles and pokes at the things that are wrong with the world. Art, in a certain sense, is the world. Art provokes, it makes us feel, it takes us out of ourselves. Art fills in blanks, it takes us places we wouldn’t otherwise go. Art enlivens us, emboldens us, and fills us with wonder and delight. Art calms us and soothes. Sometimes art makes us angry or distressed or melancholy. In short, through art we have a ready means to explore those things that make us human.

Abundance!


A large agate slice, a jade Buddha and a traditional money tree of quartz crystals are some of the elements I've used in this feng shui Abundance Altar Box.  Although abundance can take many forms, this work is specifically tuned by feng shui symbols to potentiate financial success.  This, as well as all of my art works is one of a kind.   $150
