I’m all about the thrill of the hunt. I canvas thrift stores, estate sales, and even those sketchy antique stores that no girl in her right mind would walk into alone. I’m looking for that one awesome thing that is irrevocably unique. I think the P.C term for what I make is vintage altered art assemblage. But let me break it down… I find cool old stuff and make it into cool new stuff. Some of my recent projects are holiday wreaths made from vintage goodness, frames of misfit toys, charming Christmas Cribs, and vintage planters chock full o' old stuff. While some of my pieces might bare a striking family resemblance, because they’re vintage by nature, they’re truly one of a kind. What I find determines what I make, so it’s hard to pin point what’s next in the repertoire. You can sometimes call IT kitschy, sometimes call IT shabby, sometimes call IT retro, but you can always call IT courtney.
