Welcome to Foxhollow Studio. I live in southern Oklahoma. Creating mixed media and jewelry made from vintage pieces are two of my favorite things these day. I also do a little card making and projects with my Silhouette Cameo. I work full time as a Realtor and I love coming home and spending time in my art room.
This duo is generally close around when I'm trying to be creative...
Meet my little boy, Chopin, my Burmese kitty
and....Monet, my sweet little female Burmese kitty.
There is generally a lot of glitter going on here...often it is on the kitties. I love collecting vintage shakers for storing as well as displaying my glitter.
I love the blue paint...it makes me happy!
The space is filled with many of my art creations and finds from my travels to France and flea markets around the country. Some of my other displayed items are from art swaps.
I purchase a revamped china hutch for storing art supplies and displaying some of my favorite things.
Note the kitty bed in the corner...my talented husband built it so both of the kitties can stay near and could see out the window and watch the birds. Those are 2 lucky kitties.
More storage...old jars for mixed media parts, big glass jar for wash tape, places for things needed handy like glue, glitter gels, art markers, etc.
I love my old metal supply cabinet for storing my vintage millinery & my card collection from different artist. I took an old sewing machine cabinet drawer, painted it and now it stores my stickers and other trim.
These are my Pottery Barn knockoff shelves made by my husband. The metal files came from my father's business, they are good for storing small art pieces. I change out the shelves from time to time with my new and old favorite pieces that I have made.
I've collected silver cups and trays for storing my art tools, that are used frequently throughout the week.
Vintage sprinkler holds my rosaries and beads.
My tool box that I made from an old suitcase that I carry to classes. I adore vintage lace...can you tell? The beautiful vintage rose came from my last trip to the Rose Bowl flea market. It was the perfect finishing touch.
These beautiful girls are a work of art that I have collected through the years. Each one is unique.
The saying sums it up for me. I was nearly 50 years old before I started exploring art and using my talents. Many of us are busy with our jobs, raising a family, or simply don't have the confidence to start. Art has opened up so many hours of enjoyment, new friendships, and travel. So, this is basically how my studio came about. It became my little place to escape into my art.
Thank you for stopping by...I hope you enjoyed my space. I have seen the other studios in years past and mine is quite simple and small compared to many. But, it is perfect for me.

Welcome to Foxhollow Studio! I am so happy to share my Creative Space with you! ok....I went shopping today and added a lamp and some greenery. I love these things that make me get things done. Look at the difference....much better! I use my shelves above my work table to display some favorite items that I have made, received in swaps and were given as gifts by artist friends. This is a new color and a fresh look for me this year...take a look at last years studio pic. I love the new color and my chandelier! I must admit...after I saw Karen's jars covered with embellishments for holding her tools, I made some too! They were so much fun to do, that I made some and gave them away! I always enjoy finding vintage items for storing my tools, like this old bowl for my jewelry tools and the old metal drawers are great for jewelry parts with its divided compartments. I took an old water sprinkler for displaying the jewelry that I am making or its handy for when I w
