Wild Child Art Gallery
Fine Art -Artists at work in the "Heart of Matlacha"
Original Fine Art & Jewelry- Voted Best Art Gallery in Matlacha
Inspiration is everywhere! Since polymer clay can mimic other materials, or just be itself, it is my favorite medium. Limitless colors can be mixed, textured, sanded, and shaped into any form. The designs are built with the clay, not painted on. As a scavenger, I often add clay to found objects such as sea glass, beach junk, and shells. Many pieces appear to be ancient metal artifacts, often containing old symbols or writing. When I sculpt the clay, things just happen!
What if I do this... try that... add some of those...
My family, husband Doug, and I live in Three Rivers, Michigan. For over 15 years I was co-owner of Walnut Street Studio, creating custom floor cloths, hand-painted signs, and faux finishes. Doug and I also owned "That Artsie Place", a gallery of area artists. I teach at our local Carnegie Center for the Arts, and am a member of the Three Rivers Artists Guild, Great Lakes Beadworks Guild, and the Metro Detroit Polymer Art Guild. I love to bellydance and teach Zumba in between creating one-of-a-kind polymer art pieces.
