That is, for those of us who live in New Jersey. The site has an eclectic mix of listings for film festivals, art galleries, flea markets, food trucks...............

2015 Illustrated Food Calendar

I just recently discovered how easy it is to collage photos together at photojoiner.net, and I'm a bit addicted to it. My calendar is at my Etsy shop. Each month is a still life done in pastel.

Woodland Stick Puppets

My woodland animals are printed from my pastel drawings. They are cut out and mounted on wooden dowels. Sometimes I will get emails through Etsy asking if they can have a "blonde" wolf or a female deer. I'm assuming that people think that what they are asking would be a simple switch. Maybe that is true, if the work is created on the computer, but for me it would involve starting from scratch.

Cards and Paper Wallets

I got this display ready for a new store that opened recently. They have my Christmas cards, masks and paper wallets. The paper wallets are handprinted and lined with aluminum to protect your credit card information. They're also available here.

Card Display

Last weekend I showed my work at a holiday bazaar in Brookside, NJ. The night before I started roaming around the house to find an interesting way to showcase my Christmas cards. I came up with the silverware drawer that is underneath my 1930s kitchen table. This turned out to be the perfect solution. I didn't need to construct anything at the last minute and it gave the display a more cozy look. Plus, it was a far better way to show the cards than having them lie flat on the table.
Cards are also available here.
