"ARROYO"

A dry channel through which water flows intermittently and irregularly. Kind of like this blog.

My art is an infectious need for me, sometimes a burden but most often a blessing.

This blog is about me and my obsessions, my loves, my need to create and my need of JUNK. I'm addicted to thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets and all roads leading off the beaten track to discover that perfect piece of junk. I recycle old license plates, old shovels, wheelbarrows, saw blades and anything else that's funky using my hand held plasma cutter. I love working with steel, sculpting, photography, watercolor painting, stained glass, and turning everyday utilitarian objects into art. Junked cars ~ I will always veer off the path to search out the beautiful wrecked Arroyo JunKers throughout Arizona, New Mexico and anywhere else the road may lead. When I'm not searching for those JunKers

Headed to Sea Ranch

Had a great sale at the Botanical Garden's this weekend and as always it's a double edged sword; when you sell a lot you have to start all over creating and since we are headed on vacation for 10 days that makes my window for recreating some items very small for my next upcoming show Nov 19th, but that's life and all I'm thinking about is heading to Sea Ranch on the Northern California Redwood Coast on Thursday.

 Sea Ranch Chapel (isn't it wonderful!)

I can't wait to see family and walk the beach, smell the ocean and just do nothing!  I hope to catch up with all of you upon my return!
