I am a New Mexico writer, photographer, and multi-media artist — who also happens to operate a beauty shop.


  My one-of-a-kind polymer clay and soft-sculpture or bottle-based art dolls (and other items) may be seen and purchased through Silver City's Marketplace consignment shop, my Judy's Nails 'N Stuff beauty salon at Silver City's old Bullard Hotel, and the nearby Javalina Coffeehouse. Please check out my Facebook page at Judys Handmade Art, my storefront at Etsy.com, and my Pinterest posts (click the logos above to access  these directly).


  I also create fanciful earrings, shopping totes, stuffed animals, cup cozies, paper mosaic collages, note cards, buttons, raincoats, and other gift items out of recycled materials. My favorites include aluminum cans, scrap fabric, plastic bags, fibrous paper, and disposable coffee cups. Please, let's keep the landfills less full. Recycle! Upcycle!


  I am a 30-year Silver City resident and live downtown with my dog, Gizelle.
