New graphic tees, functional spoons, show info, winter transformations... February 16, 2017 12:26
Happy Winter to all!
I've been busy reinventing some of my offerings here at Lily In Flux. This year, I've decided to add some graphic apparel to the collection, I taught myself to screenprint back in 1998 when I was living in Bar Harbor, Maine, I used the sun to expose the screens and went from there. I've made some prints over the years and I've been wanting to bring it forth into full production so here they are! Click on Apparel and shop away! I have three designs available at the moment but there are more coming along in the design tank.
I've also added some functional spoons and spreaders to the stamped collection. Whee!
I'm still lining up shows for the 2017 season, but because life matters, I have decided to cut back on shows this year. I found myself drowning in shows last year and pretty much abandoned myself and my personal life, which, as we all know, makes jack a dull boy. So look for me at some classic shows like, Summerfair Cincinnati, Ann Arbor Guild, Hyde Park Art Show, The City Flea and such. I will be listing my shows once they are nailed down. But like always, the website is a great place to shop Lily In Flux.
Cheers to the people, spread love and equality.
From the vault, an interview from 6 years ago. January 15, 2017 13:39

Happy wintering you beautiful people,

I can't believe we are halfway through June already. This Saturday, the 20th, I will be set up once again at the spectacular City Flea right here in Cincinnati. It is held once a month down at Washington Park and if you haven't been yet, you really should make your way to this fun event. It is family friendly and the littles can run and play in the water fountains at the park when they inevitably get hot. I'll have the FluxBots and all the new jewelry I've been making. Come down and see me! xoxo

Invasion of the FluxBots and It's Spring!!! March 20, 2015 21:07
So, Happy Spring!!!!! This winter wasn't too crazy over here in the Midwest, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see it go. It was certainly productive though, the snow filled days gave birth to my FluxBots. An army of quirky robot assemblages made from found objects, kitchen gadgets, industrial forms, and all kinds of other doodads. I've been in the studio, surrounded by not only jewelry supplies, but also boxes of robot parts (which have been there all along waiting their turn in the spotlight) Well, now is their time! Don't worry, I'm not switching gears entirely, just splitting my focus. So I've been streamlining the jewelzzz and creating FluxBots. The Bots have really been marinating for years. I used to make a lot of mixed media assemblage before the jewelry days, clocks made from old tins and such. The Bots are just the next generation so to speak. Check them out and perhaps you'll want to adopt one, or maybe even two!
I just adore them and I will be bringing them to shows and festivals throughout the year**
**some shows don't allow more than one "type" of art per booth, so unfortunately I won't be able to have both jewelry and Bots at all the shows on the calendar.

Salvage, Scavenge, Create. January 18, 2015 14:09
I have always been a scavenger of sorts, constantly collecting even the most unassuming nostalgic treasures, ephemera, things left behind, objects with history, & stories from the past. My goal is to bring the past into the present by making something beautiful and interesting out of discarded bits of life. I use found objects and urban artifacts with history, like 1950's eyeglass lenses, skeleton keys, bullet casings, animal teeth, chandelier crystals, deer antlers, vintage jewelry parts, & clock mechanisms. I can turn just about anything into tiny wearable assemblages. All of my work reflects this need to salvage & repurpose, mixing paper and paint, objects and artifacts, text and textures to create a story, a puzzle or simply evoke emotion.
Here's some proof:
Me at age 4 with a rock. So proud.
