Just recently I decided to put more effort into marketing to various galleries. I started by looking at where Amy Flynn of Fobots has sold in the past. She is one of my favorite assemblage artists and has become so successful that she no longer needs gallery representation! Below is a photo of her delightful assemblage robots made from various found objects. Her website is: ifobot.com.
In looking at galleries in which she has sold in the past, I came across The Eclectic Collector in Katonah, NY. I decided to e-mail the gallery and include a photo of my giraffe assemblage, "Frederick the Great" to try to catch the gallery owner's attention. I also provided links to several different pages of my website. Much to my delight, the owner, Ellie Kimelman, called me within a half hour of my sending the e-mail! After speaking with Ellie, we decided that I would send to her 12 of my animals on a consignment basis. I feel so grateful to have this opportunity to gain more exposure to collectors of one-of-a-kind quirky and whimsical art!
Here are the 12 items that I'm sending off to The Eclectic Collector. Hopefully they'll each find new homes (and not be returning home to the nest)!

I am 58 years old, a wife of 26 years, a mother of a wonderful and independent 19-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!
