Mixed Media & Collage - Abstract


In October of 1996 two of my friends were moving to Sun Valley Idaho. They were having a hard time finding a proper home to watch their pet Burmese Python, Medea. I was the only one who came to mind since I had a pet tarantula at one time. What started as a one-month babysitting job turned into adoption, since transporting Medea could be hazardous to her health. I have grown to love and respect this beautiful creature.

About the time Medea moved in I was hand-painting glassware. Four years later I decided to see if it was possible to incorporate the shed into my art. Besides vases, the art has been expanded to picture frames, drums, furniture, canes, walking sticks, clothing, etc. If these beautiful reptiles are allowed to live, they will continue to renew themselves leaving their unique markings as a gift.

Thank You!

Ps. As an update, also started making jewelry in 2009 honoring the memory of Michael Jackson. Some of the jewelry is on Etsy.
