I have designed this site to be simple and easy to use without all the "whiz-bangs" and high tech bells and whistles!
I program it all myself and would rather amaze you with my jewelry design than dazzle you with my technical ability. Besides, it will
be easier to keep updated and maintain this way. That in itself is a hard task since my creations are for the most part one of a kind.
Some of my mediums - especially the dichroic fused glass - are extremely difficult to photograph. All of my creations will look better
in person than in photography. I do not attempt to compete with the wonderful photographers out there!
I hope you enjoy your visit!


A LIttle About Me…

• Born in Minnesota
• Grew up in Oregon - (Beaverton) My name was Denise (or Deni) Hart
• Lived for 35 (and counting) in Missouri
• Now I'm a "snow bird" spending some time in Florida and traveling the country exhibiting in shows

• Reside in Kimberling City on Table Rock Lake near Branson MO.

• I'm a juried, award winning multi-medium painter also
• I don't concentrate on winning awards…although I've won plenty of them. I'd rather spend my time exploring new processes
rather than try to impress judgse with their own agenda and who may not understand the processes.
• My life philosophy is pretty much summed up by the quotes at the top of this page and below. I am a spiritual person of faith who is just simply delighted
by the surprises that come with every new day.

Artist Statement

Exploring and experimenting with creative processes is the fulfillment and joy of being an artist.

D
iscovering the true nature and intent of raw materials…the hunting for raw materials... the sawing, grinding and polishing… the cutting and the firing… the "great experiment" of my multi-medium creations… transforming raw materials to become "works of fine art".

Like a child with a trunk full of costumes, and holding to my belief, "You're "never too old to have a happy childhood"……
I put on the lab-coat of the chemist, the visor of the mathematician, the boots of explorer and geologist, the coat and hat of archeologist, the conservationist's T-shirt, the goggles of the physicist and chemist or the metallurgist's apron… and complete the design.

Each element of the process means the excitement of discovery. All of the preparation and investigation is as exciting as the actual creation. All of the creation is as exciting as the presentation.

When that special person makes a connection, finding value and meaning in the completed composition, there is great satisfaction as an artist, sharing my artwork with others.
