"Good Medicine"

Of all the possible mediums, dolls bring together my love for drama, story telling and ritual. Contemporary dollmaking is exciting because I'm working with so many materials, creating constant challenges in every piece I create.


"Woman of Wisdom - Intuition"

Dolls bring us back to our ancient tribal roots and have been found in every indigenous culture. My figures are goddesses, angels, shaman, fairies....strong, soft, magical and mystical. I like to think they carry something more important than just form...SPIRIT! I've been fortunate to experiences some wonderful moments when someone views one of my figures and there is that "connection".


"MAAT"

I gather pieces, old and new, create a clay face, hand-painted and dyed fabric, paper mache', feathers, beads, leather, bark and all manner of found objects in their construction. I work with color, texture, shape and emotion. At some point the spirit of the piece emerges and takes over...that's when I'm filled with joy, it is like an outer body experience.


"AND THE SEA CHANGED HER"


"LITTLE TRIBAL GUY"

I love sharing something I've brought to life that comes from my imagination......enjoy...julie

Musings
 
 

Art is not so much expressing oneself, as it is discovering oneself.
- Anawanitia

The only thing better than singing is more singing.
- Ella Fitzgerald

Stop. Breathe. Allow yourself the luxury of doing nothing for a moment, or an hour, or even a day. It is in emptiness that inspiration will appear.
- Carole Katchen

I don't see why we ever think of what others think of what we do no matter who they are. Isn't it enough just to express yourself?
- Georgia O'Keeffe

Poetry

Fried Sugar Throat

Peel me like a pear
I don't care
wear me anyway you want
as long as I'm soft
drawn open
a fried sugar throat
a resting bone
breath like strawberry
and a sore sore throat
so sore I rub it
I love it

Do whatever you want
I don't care
as long as I'm soft
tasting tangerine
caught like a thief
whispering vines
in between teeth

My hands wander
my eyes wander
my heart wanders
I'm fine as long as you
let me go on about with
this sweetness
a fried sugar throat
going sweeter
with every turn

Peel me like a pear
I don't care
spin me round
see what you create
little jewel box handler
wear me anyway you want
I don't care
as long as I'm soft
sore and sweet.
