Some of you may have read my blog from May entitled:
My Recent New York City Marketing/Buying/Selling Adventure
where I explained that in marketing my assemblage art, I spoke with the store manager Lourdes Martinez-Baide from the exquisite gourmet chocolate shop, MarieBelle, in the SoHo area of New York City and pitched to her the idea of making some animals for sale in the shop from their lovely hot chocolate tins. Here is the unveiling of my first two dogs. I hope their customers like them so I have the opportunity to make more! And thank you so much Lourdes for giving me this wonderful opportunity!
Here is "Queen MarieBelle"
Here is "Pharoah MarieBelle"
I think they'll fit right in with the opulent décor. What do you think?
If you live near the city or get a chance for a visit, make sure to check out this fabulous chocolate shop and café. Here's their website and address:
484 Broome Street, NY, NY 10013, phone: 212-925-6999 X 1.

I am 56 years old, a wife of 25 years, a mother of a wonderful and independent 17-year-old daughter, a clinical psychologist who treats adults in private practice, and last, but definitely not least, an artist. Whew! That was a mouth full. My passion is creating one-of-a-kind whimsical sculptural animals, dolls, and cake toppers (with a little multi-media collage thrown in for good measure). I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them!
