I would like to greet you with a very warm welcome to my gallery and thank you for taking an interest in my art. Browse as you please. Items that are made to order will be in the description.
It is in this gallery that you will find the many environmental art pieces, paintings, wood-crafted items, cut tile art, upcycled creations, all-island art plus any other art that I have completed within the past few years of my artistry career.
I was very fortunate to have been born as a native to an island that is settled 26 miles off the coast of Los Angeles Port. Yes, you read that right, an island. I was born and raised on beautiful Santa Catalina Island and it is the environment and surroundings of such a wondrous place that brings me much inspiration for many of my art pieces, which I refer to as "Island Art."
When materials are accessible to me, I like to create upcycled art. Transforming something of no use into a new and better quality item can be very enlightening, especially when lookers see what it used to be.
Be sure to take a look at my GAR-TINS section. Gar-tins are metal or aluminum cans that I have upcycled to wind-tin wind chimes and gar-tin friends'.
These are hand-painted cans for your garden or potted plants. They are handpainted in such a way to either attract the good bugs needed in every garden or to repeal the bad bugs away from your garden.
These can be ordered custom hand-painted and decorated with any theme. These are good sellers year-round.
In the more recent years, I have taken a liking to work with wood. Mastering the use of power tools and specialty hand tools almost seems natural to me and aids me in what I use to create special wooden holiday home and yard or garden decorations, home and yard signs, beach and ocean wood art for outdoor or indoor display, 3D custom wood name signs (Mickey Mann's Specialty), building small pieces of furniture, and so much more.
I have many different types of art and have tried many with which some have been pretty successful at the art shows and continue to sell at the local Catalina Island Art Shows, Christmas Craft Boutique, and The Crafters Corner opening on April 29, 2022, all located on the island.
I am always seeking out new methods and learning new skills.
