ENTER THE WORLD OF ARTSHADOW WORKSHOP
Invite a little fun into your life
Since 2012, I have been making and selling whimsical art pieces made from mostly upcycled materials. Each piece is one of a kind. I hope you'll enjoy looking at my ever-changing array of creations.
What is it that makes you come alive? I love the challenge of making beautiful things out of recycled materials. Growing up in rural Maine, being creative often meant "making do" with the materials around me. I loved the peculiar materials in the patchwork quilts on my bed and I still love the quality and uniqueness of re-purposed textiles in the form of used clothing, blankets and other cast offs. All my creations are one of a kind. I move between creating with cloth to creating with paint and up-cycled cardboard, paper mache and wood. Details on my dolls are lovingly hand-stitched or needle felted.
Artshadow Workshop came into being during a difficult time in my life. It is what has allowed me to heal and flourish, following the death of my extremely creative daughter, Annie Robinson. Making art is a process that has allowed me to walk through the shadows and to create with humor, joy and light. I hope that my creations will bring joy to you as well.
