My wish is to continue to create beautiful but also fun works of art fueled by passion and imagination. I am recycling found objects and having a blast! One man's trash becomes a 'Keri treasure!' So the flea markets provide me with the items needed for my work. I specialize in creating 'feel good' art sculptures but I also incorporate polymer clay in many of my pieces. Most are whimsical, unique & on the FuNkY side like me!
I am an artist with Lyme Disease who was told 'art would be impossible' 13 years ago. I now have made 1500 pieces
of original art.

This year is 'Shattered Mirror'
My 'Shattered Mirror' project required me to go back a lifetime and create as well as conquer demons from my past. I needed to break through my mirror and build a dollhouse I bought myself 30 years ago. It was just a simple empty dollhouse but I wanted to make every miniature that went inside it. I think most females wish they had a dollhouse if they never had one and it was a gift to my inner child. I was an abused wife for 12 years widowed when I was 31. The dollhouse was thrown into a garbage bag I lugged around for years forgetting about it living my 'new' life. Prior to our gallery's annual exhibit which was 'Shattered Mirror' I chose to go back a lifetime, open cans of worms and demons but build my
