  • Gallery – Thread Paints and Prints

    Gallery – Thread Paints and Prints

    This body of work is inspired by the small needle works we treasure, pass down to family, only to be put in a box and stored for the next generation.  I like to think that I am making these things contemporary and in turn timeless.  Freeing  them from the dust and allowing them to be seen and appreciated once again.  I do not consider this up-cycling, because in most cases the fiber objects, I create or find are filled with […]

  • Beehive  #ArtUP

    Beehive #ArtUP

    I created this Beehive for my backyard.  I wanted something that reflected my art.  The colors are subtle and will allow focal point to be the natural beauty of the garden.  The first layer of paint I put down was a patina to look like old copper.  After that it was a process of layering lace and doilies in different colors.  From a distance it looks like flowers.

  • Why You Need an Artist           (City Builders)

    Why You Need an Artist (City Builders)

    Challenge:  You need to rebuild your  city after a disaster. Artists can use materials that you consider trash.  Artists are masters of recycling.  As a result they help clean up the space. Artists are resourceful and creative; they can do a lot with limited funds and can make a small budget feel bigger. Example:  Artists create parks and community meeting places by recycling old concrete found from destroyed sidewalks and roads. With proper placement the concrete can look like expensive landscaping. ____________________________________________________________________________________ […]

    Support Pollinators

    Support Pollinators –A Vendi  Art by Deborah Landry Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food.
