The Grumpy Toad is my artist-persona representing the quirky style of art I create, that being a funky mashup of nature and repurposing. I take apart old jewelry, wash it and reuse it in everything. I also work with driftwood and seaglass, anything shiny that is being discarded, buttons, keys, chandelier crystals, and more. I truly believe that many items intended to be thrown out in the garbage can be washed and reused in some way to become something new and interesting! My work ranges from driftwood walking sticks and art hangings to jewelry, garden decor, and fashion accessories.
