"Just Joe . . . "

"Just Joe"
This is an early piece, created for a very special person. This vintage clock box is covered with beautiful hand made papers, magazine images, and a brilliant image of Frida Kahlo. The box front is metal and painted with several colors of acrylic paints. A concave mirror is suspended in the center with fine copper wire, and finished with a small mahogany frame.  Inside, the box is filled to the brim with imagery, thoughts, metaphors and keepsakes . . . items with meaning are a compass, a level, a skeleton key, an amber glass drop, a toy soldier, and other tokens and reminders of lives lived.


  1. And its amazing too. I love looking at the details--you are inspiring!

  2. This is gorgeous. I bet it is even better in person.
