Photography

Photography has been a hobby of mine for years.  Now my hobby has become a career.  I’m excited to share my New England photography featuring vivid flowers, gardens, landscape and scenic nature paths, wildlife, and Cape Cod beaches.  This website showcases some of my work.  Additional framed and matted artistic photography is available for viewing and purchase at my Shoppe.

Folk Art

With emphasis on recycling – or if you will – up-cycling: recently added to my Shoppe are folk art pieces which include (but are not limited to!) “American Crafts” using recycled keepsakes for a new purpose.  Whimsical Wind Chimes are created from up-cycled silver plated flatware, with a little bit of glass bead sparkle for added charm.  Also offered from silver plate flatware are unique key chains.  Still more available: Imaginative bird feeders artfully created from cups & saucers, secured to a brass pole or colorful wood pole ready to be “plated” in the backyard.  Fanciful cookie cutter “country style” window decorations ready to hang in the window or decorate with anywhere.  Primitive birdhouses, utilizing gently loved recycled wood are also available.  Come see how this second of the Shoppe grows and offers new and creative up cycling!
