Getting Re-Aquainted With My Blog in 2017

It's been awhile since I last took a dive into my blog but since my last visit, I have gotten married and moved to the country, upper East Texas to be exact.




I was supposed to retire but I love creating art so much that I am still at it. I delight in inventing new pieces that enhance the inherent beauty within all women.


Horse Broaches

Wearable Paintings

These are mixed media horse broaches made out of hand dye silk scraps, wool felt, acrylic, beads, and aluminum foil from champagne bottles to add a splash of metallic luster.

They range in size from 2" - 3" long.
light weight, and pin easily.

Bent Wire Sculptures

for the love of dance
hands fly away



sometimes my hands fly away with me

The sculptures above are some that I made during the Bent Wire Sculpture workshop I teach at the Creative Arts Center Dallas.
Join me at the next class I am teaching.....

Bent Wire Sculpture
Instructor: VALERY GUIGNON
Bent wire sculpture is figure drawing in space. Learn to draw the human figure with wire that is easily bendable (we will create animals, too). No gluing or welding required. Start with a straight line and use your imagination to create figures that dance, fly, sit, embrace. Whatever you can imagine you can “draw”. Anything you want to weave into your sculpture (beads, bits of drift wood, feathers) will be provided along with the wire and tools.
