outsider art


  • The term outsider art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for art brut  "raw art" or "rough art", a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.

  • refers to works by those outside of mainstream society. Outsider art broadly includes folk art and ethnic art as well as by prisoners, the mentally ill and others neither trained in art nor making their works to sell them.

copper and gold

A lovely apartment I did in Chicago. the mirror is fantastic don't you think?

a beautiful guest room with custom bed and bedding. the chair is a family heirloom I had reupholstered in an animal print.

a fabulous custom made curved vanity - stained in chocolate. copper and gold at it's best.

in my opinion this is the only gold a person needs. we miss our boy Cody - we lost him last year. LOVE.

red man

Red Man was found at a local art fair, the light fixture was found in the barn at a funky shop I go to often. Always remember to look up!
Subway tile always look right.

Another art fair find.
