How I Came To Make Pencil Sculptures

I first came across pictures of pencil sculptures online and wanted to buy one, only to find out that the artist was no longer making them because in his opinion, he had already made his masterpiece. So, I was left for a few years with my only access to these sculptures being my desktop background. After several years, I eventually learned how to create the sculpture and then made my own improvements and changes to the process. With the encouragement (and pressure) of my friends and family, I decided to produce the scultures and sell them online.



 ***After a few twists and turns called life I have to turn over a new leaf and sell some of the artwork I have made.  I am shy to sell it.  But please let me share my loves with you!  I can send you one of my mathematical and geometrical sculptures to you, it will be a conversation piece!  I call them simple complexities because that is truly what they are! 

How I learned Japanese papercrafts

Long story short, there was no way to learn Japanese (30 years ago) in the Midwest, USA so, I packed my bags and went to Japan!  I ended up staying almost 6 years.


My first exposure to Japanese paper crafts was with my homestay family in Yokohama, Japan on the Hinamatsuri or The Festival of Dolls.  I was honored by my Japanese family setting up their dolls for me.


I was enamored with the huge variety of dolls and the many amazing methods used to make them.  Not bad for a dedicated tomboy.  I took it upon myself to find the Masters of the Craft and studied at their feet.  I enjoyed it very much, but was delighted when the Sensei complimented my work.  It inspired me to continue.


Experimentation and possible Future Projects

Key Art

Wait till you see these beauties! I recently took a class in MIG welding so I could improve my key sculptures.  What fun!  Actually, I think TIG Welding or Brazing will be the techniques I use.  Do you know anyone who has LOTS of keys?  I need more!

Home Style Crafts

Some more traditional crafts that my sons want to help me with.  They inspire me!  I am thinking up some steampunk ideas.  Am aging and playing with the wood.  Still need more keys, please.

Simple ComplexityTemptations!

Square pegs don't like hexaganal holes.  This complexity is exceptionally difficult.  And rare.

A study of things ippon has given me some new ideas...Dangerous!  And amazing!  I can't wait!
