Inspiration from my artist friend :)

These I did while in Washington (see post below). Both are now available through my website.

My trip to see Dennis

Dennis Brown

I just spent 4 fabulous days with my artist friend Dennis Brown. I won't even begin to describe his talents as a sculpture so attached here is a link...

Dennis works in a studio in the middle of "Country Village" located in Bothell WA. A series of cute shops shared by roosters, ducks and apparently an otter. I was not lucky enough to see him but the shop owners say he's there in the big pond. Anyway, if you visit Country Village a few of my favorite shops where The Weed Patch (they carry my Pumpkinseeds Enesco line... call them I signed all their Easter birds), the antique mall where I purchased two amazing vintage suitcases and Chapters Photography. Rob the owner was so inspiring!

I learned a few new techniques these past few days. All of which I am excited to try. I also had a scarecrow sculpting contest with Dennis :) That was super fun. We both have very different styles. He has so much detail and all of his pieces tell a story. Do check out his blog which will lead to you to his website. Fabulous work!! Just fabulous.

I will also upload some pics this afternoon so watch for those :)

These are from my own collection. Now available are these four prototypes from Enesco. Prototypes are one of a kind pieces that I receive prior to the artwork going to production. I must approve these samples. Once I approve, the manufacturing begins. These are from 2007-2008 Enesco. I am moving soon and must deplete my inventory. Prices are 55.00 each. I've sold these for around the 100.00 range in the past. Hurry if interested. Go to to see shipping info. Please be specific as to which figure you want.
