RED Art Project Artist: Tinsell and Whimsey

Sue, at Tinsell and Whimsy is an artist who's life is all about art. She is one of those people who I have the pleasure of knowing and can truly say that she lives her Life Through Art. Every thought, every action, every story is connected to her creative muse.......a clown!
Sue's story:
I create one-of-a-kind folk art ........always with a pun! You can literally see my fingerprints on everything I make.

For me the journey of creating art is almost more important than the resulting art. I am most always on a new journey somewhere, usually without any preconceived notions of where I am going. To forget any artistic techniques I have learned and to make mistakes is my freedom in creation.

By day and sometimes at night too, I help at our family winery Madonna estate doing art related projects, such as labels, etc., and whatever else is needed. I like to work on my personal creations into the night from about 11:00pm until about 3:00am. I find this time to be my most creatively inspired. I love all manner of junk, found objects, and oddities, and I am absolutely, passionately, wild about creating the art of Halloween.

You can see more of Sue's art on her blog at: Tinsell and Whimsy
