Maxwell Originals


My talented daughter Jessica is joining me at Soup-R-Art this year with her Industrial/Steampunk lamps. I love all of her designs and they really make our booth stand out! Have a look at what she has created...





This is a meat grinder with a bulb on the inside!

I love this one! It's so Steampunk!









Soup-R-Art Stock


I have been getting ready for one of the best shows of the year! Soup-R-Art is a local fundraiser for the Art Center and it combines a soup competition with the local restaurants and local artists selling and demonstrating their art work. This is a great event and I love being a part of it. (I also love trying all of the amazing soups, desserts, and wine!) Here are a few of the newer pieces I have been working on for this show...

A mural for the elementary library


I was recently hired at our local school to be a part time para librarian. I'm so excited to work at the school! This summer the high school art teacher  Karen Eddie and I painted a mural in the elementary library. This is our progress over the five days it took us to paint it. I think it really brightened up the library :)

New designs for Junkstock


Jewelry making madness at our house! I'm just about to the point where I am comfortable with the stock I have built up. I think I can last three days and not run out. I have a few weeks left to make more just to be on the safe side. Here are a few of the newest pieces in the collection. I think I'm going to list some on my Etsy store very soon for pre-sales.
