Working with native and exotic woods has been a passion of mine since 1977. What began as a hobby turned into a full time job. I enjoy giving attention to detail and accuracy. All of my pieces are one of a kind. My work is sold in shops and galleries in 5 states.

 

I’m inspired by the outcome of my cards to create smiles. My Airedale Terrier Molly, and nature assists my creativity and brings me much joy.

Lanham, Maryland

As an artist, I’ve chosen photography as my vehicle in allowing the viewer a glimpse into how I interpret life, all the while hoping to show a different perspective than one might expect. Photography has been a near-lifelong passion for me. I started out with a cheap box film camera in the mid-1950’s, photographed Vietnam in the mid-1960’s, worked as a photo lab technician 1970-2005, picked up a digital camera and joined a camera club in 2006. Joining the camera club taught me the skills and discipline needed to be a good photographer.
Although I’ve worked with film, I now devote most of my energy creating digital images. These digital images are then fine-tuned using various software packages. Then the work is sent to a professional photo lab for prints.
I’m what is considered a “generalist” photographer. A generalist is one who photographs a variety of subjects. Although I’ve found my passion in photographing nature, abstracts, and travel, I’ve also been known to photograph street scenes, extreme close-ups, and portraits—in other words, just about anything. I’ve found that doing so helps to keep me motivated and provides me with a large subject list.

Kim creates unique and whimsical, one-of-a-kind folk art with gourds…many of which are grown on her and husband Bob’s PA farm. No two gourds are alike. Sometimes a piece is created by painting the gourd with meticulous attention to detail in its original, unaltered shape. Other times the shape is enhanced or transformed with epoxy or paper clay sculpture. A multi-step hand-rubbed aging technique finishes each piece and adds to the old-fashioned charm. Many of her pieces are holiday themed. Inspiration comes from the simplicity of country life on the family farm. The changing seasons, an affinity for treasures from a bygone era and holiday traditions…these things are all celebrated in her work.

My name is Olivia and I am the owner and creator of my very own line of soft-soled shoes made entirely from recycled materials inspired by my own children who have worn them since they were tiny!

The majority of my slippers are made from upcycled wool…meaning they had a former life as a sweater, and are lined in upcycled fleece. The soles are constructed of leather leftover by factories and upholstery shops. Occasionally I offer all leather shoes or slippers made from fleece and cotton.

All appliques that I create are hand-made, artistically put together piece by piece. I sew everything with the same love and care that would go into creations for my own family.

I hope you enjoy these little shoes as much as I do!
