I love the creative process, and assemblage is one of my favorite artistic mediums. It’s perfect for me, since I’m a gatherer and collector. Many of the drawers in our art studio (aka converted dining area) are stuffed with odds and ends I’ve found at flea markets, thrift stores, and antique stores. And I have an entire drawer full of vintage photos! I guess it’s a good thing I’m actually putting some of my treasures to use in these assemblages. :]
These first four assemblages will be followed by ten more since I have a total of fourteen little wooden houses. Some will be made available for sale – like the Fishhook and Bereft assemblages below – and some will stay in my personal collection. The dress in the Mending assemblage was handmade by my great-grandmother, Elizabeth Lillian, so I’ll be keeping that piece.
If you’re interested in purchasing an assemblage you may do so by visiting my Etsy store. You may also see more photos of each piece – there are five photos of each assemblage…

I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek at my artwork! Please let me know if you have any questions regarding these four assemblages I’ve created.
