My Sketchbook

Saturday, May 9, 2009


Hoops are such a perfect accessory for the summer wardrobe. They look fantastic with any casual wear. From tank tops to shirts, jeans or skirts, with long or short hair, loose or tied up.

I make these hoops in brass and copper, with many kinds of patinas and finishes. From bright and shinny to brushed, and patinas in black or beautiful blue-green verdigris. I make two different sizes: 2 and 3 inches in diameter.

This weekend only (Saturday May 9 and Sunday May 10), all my copper and brass hoops are on sale! 20% off. Just write the code "weekend deal" in message to seller at the time of checkout and I will shortly issue a refund through PayPal.

Look for them in this section of my Etsy shop.

I've been asked what inspires me, and it is such a simple question to answer, but difficult at the same time. So many things: I love the randomness and organic shapes of nature, and am fascinated by the passage of time and its effects on things. I am not a perfectionist, and love to be surprised. Anything from art, design, architecture, to life experiences, textures and colors, lines and silhouettes. I am not good with expressing myself with words, so art is a very important form of expression to me. Not only important, but necessary.

Drought, Climate change and Globalization

Dead fish . dry lake

This is not in Death Valley, or drought stricken West Africa. I took this picture this afternoon at my local lake located in the bountiful Argentine Pampas. This is the result of a severe and unusual drought due to globalization, climate change, deforestation, and irresponsible farming beans...oh, don't even get me started...

I am part of an N.G.O. We took advantage of this sad situation to clean up the trash inside the lagoon.
