  • About me

    Artistic pursuits have always been a salvation for me. When younger, it was music and painting. But when disability made these impossible, I found myself floundering a bit - lost in reality with an overactive imagination!

    So I put it to work doing things I can do from a hospital bed - writing, designing/crafting folk art goofy dolls and creating unique hair sticks for those of us with long hair. The Pulitzer has not been bestowed upon me, the Rag-Tag Critters been optioned by Mattel, nor have the hairsticks set the world on fire, but that was never the point behind the creation.

    They did what they were charged to do: Saved me, giving me a fuller, interesting, productive life. The off-shoot being I'm also touching the lives of others with the scribbling and the artistic creations.

    I think it's safe to say, there's not going to be hundreds of hair sticks in my booth. I never want to be in the position of having to "crank them out full speed ahead" - this pours ice water over my power to design. I know there are people who thrive on the deadline; I'm not one of them...

    Door County, WI is "home." An amazing locale for artists of all kinds, so there's a lot of support for any and all artistic pursuits.

    Thanks for stopping by. I do hope I've found a "home" here. It feels quite comfortable, so far!

  • Personal Endorsements of HairWiredHairSticks

    Hands down the most talented artist I have run across on the net or off. Every gallery, every art show, every festival should be carrying her work. Her Rag Tag Critters will quickly become heirlooms! You will not be disapointed with this artisan!

    Bringing great art to the masses…

    I have a long time personal association with the artist who creates these incredible hairsticks and rag tag critters. Her talent is amazing and her prices are so very reasonable for the one-of-a-kind collectibles she creates.

    I want to leave a personal endorsement for this lady. She is an absolute joy to speak with on line.
    She recently helped me on a personal project that was NOT listed in her store. She did what I requested and did it in a very timely manner.

    What she did for me was above and beyond what I had wanted. A true artist and a wonderful seller.

    I would recommend buying her products to anyone.

    She’s a very caring and talented individual and I feel very fortunate to have met her and experienced her artistry and abilities first hand.
