for your tuesday enjoyment, a myriad of 'dailydresses'


As I am prepping for a presentation for a possible exhibit opportunity I've realized
that i don't have a good collection of my 'dailydresses' online.  I need to add these to
my website, however until I do I am sharing them here.


These selection includes ephemeral dresses that I have made during the course of my every day, with random materials and detritus that have inspired me. 


I have also included images from my 'dailydress inspirations' which consists of an origami dress with an inspirational quote.


My 'dressproject' began with an ephemeral dress on Wells Beach in Maine on a family vacation.
My first dress, 'brenda's dress ...' was made out of beach stones.  


and the beach and rocks continue to inspire ...





I also have many ephemeral dresses made out of food.  
Besides my passion for eating and good food, I believe the plethora of food related dresses comes from me being a mom and having young girls when I started my 'dressproject'. 








Other inspiration comes from nature ...






 

and art supplies ...





The following images are from the series, 'decemberdress' (2013) in which I made a 'dailydress' most days in December as a kind of therapy.  You can see more and read more about this series in my post, 













I tell people that I have made over one thousand dresses since I started my 'dressproject', 
and I see no end in sight. 


Thank you for your interest and peace,

HAPPY CYBER MONDAY!!!

Just wanted to send out the links and sale codes to my online shops as today is Cyber Monday.

I have two online shops where you can find a myriad products featuring my designs, one is Society6 and the other is Redbubble.
I have the LINKS to my shops as well as some photos BELOW.
Each site features some different products and there is a variation in designs as well.
My shop on Redbubble included my illustrations and patterns, as well as some of my 'from the land of dragons …' & 'lilith contemplates …' photos and many of my images from my 'dailydress …' blog.
Society6 features some of my most recent work, my collages.

Some of these products make great gifts for groups,  the 'get thee to the library ...' small zipper pouches makes a nice gift for your book group members.  Many of the designs would make great teacher gifts, a mugs with books or a 'let it go ...' mug.  I also have some designs that work for men,  'dapper dad ...' and 'man of the hour ...'.

Sadly navigating these sites can be confusing, however these sites are the best way for me to get my art out there, until I set up my own online shop (something I have wanted to do for YEARS!!)

I'm hoping to make them as clear and easy as possible, 
however if you have questions, please leave a comment and I will help guide you as best as I can.

Hope that you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday and sending much love and peace for the coming weeks.
