When creating my textile art, I enjoy mixing my vintage photos with fabric bits and other, new, old, or created baubles, to build a texture to the piece.
Whether it is an original art piece, or a re-envisioned existing item, there is no pattern to follow. It is an eclectic, raveled road to placing things in an imperfect way, to add depth and character to an imagined history.
The common denominator in my work is animals. They have always been my true kindred spirits. The primitive pencil drawings on my grade school papers were always horses.
When the art is a painting, I work primarily in acrylics, and unlike many artists, I’m not sure you can look at pieces of my work and say , “oh, I know who did that !” My style is not constant in all things, and because my work is so diversified , it is, its own animal, so to speak.
The photography goal for most, seems to be strictly razor sharp images. But I like how some of the images I capture come out slightly soft, painterly and lovely. So I shoot, and keep what speaks to me, not what someone elses idea of a perfect photograph is. Be it tack sharp or not, its what you capture that matters, not a technical criteria.
I photograph animals, even insects, because I like them, landscapes and old abandoned things mostly. I sometimes throw the cameras in the car and take off driving for the day, to find interesting things to shoot.
It may be only a post with barbed wire, a cow or a windmill. As long as it beckons me to save it, in that moment in time, I will.
Interesting jewelry that tells the world your style, is something I have always loved , I guess thats why I enjoy creating unique pieces.
I have a passion for western history and the Victorian era, so the past is always kept in the present here. Vintage photo jewelry is a staple at Wild Horse Moon.
I have added in my own photo art , and continue to mix the media up, to concoct new designs from many things old and new.
Hand painted, sculptured, beaded, sewn, assembled found items, or a blend of all of those, means you never know what you will find here, that may speak to you.
