Crazy Charlie is a one of a kind piece.  He's all excited because the Christmas season is approaching and he can start draping himself with tinsel and bobbles.  Now if he could only keep his head on straight!


Sculpted with creative paperclay, Charlie came to life.  He stands steady on a wooden platform while he gets busy with his decorations.

Frosty's Peppermint Snowflake Cookies are welcoming you into the kitchen.  What a fun way to add a splash of Christmas art to your floor.    I visualize this in front of the kitchen sink of a bustling holiday kitchen.  Not to worry about splattering the cookie dough, it's an easy wipe off.

Hallow-Gooblets







I truly enjoyed creating my “Gooblets” .  I wanted each one to have their own special personality and I really think they do.  When they are all lit up with the battery candle, they look like they might be just a little mischievous. 

Standing about 20” tall and made from a wooden candle stick,  glass globe and sculpted with air dry clays these little guys add a little pop to your Halloween d├ęcor.

Halloweenie Frank



I started creating "Halloweenies" in 2015 for a Halloween Show I was exhibiting at. They turned out to be a big selling item and I’m happy to say will be in the Fall 2016 edition of Art Doll Quarterly. 

“Halloweenies” are little miniature semi- posable dolls that are little kiddos with masks on, each are 6" tall seated and about 10" tall with legs outstretched.  They are the little ones who come to your door with their little trick or treat buckets expecting goodies.  The side view picture of the shows the “mask” attached to a little kids face.

Hand sculpted with paperclay and proscuplt, then carefully painted and dressed.  A hang tag with the following description is attached to each “Halloweenie”.

We are the wee ones
 that got all dressed up and yelled
“Trick or Treat”

Summer has begun in SWFL



This is a picture of some fungus on the side of a fallen tree on my parents property in NC.  The colors were so vibrant.

Summer has hit Florida, the humidity is hiking up and the a/c is up and running.  So mornings are best time to sit out on the patio sipping coffee and watching the birds.   In the evening the state bird, the mosquito, gets too active.

On my way to the Green Market and vendor show this morning.  Hoping to pick up some fresh veggies and may an antique or two.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Patio sitting


Had to post a few peaceful pictures.  As I sat out on the patio sipping my coffee and updating my blog I realized just how nice a few plants around made me feel.  I love plants and flowers, but my work and art time make me forget to water them as often as they need to be.  So right now they look lovely.  The orchid has manged to thrive without much care and the shamrock, well she's brand new and just re-potted yesterday.

Zahara - Zen Art Doll





$150.00   contact me at Susiewhc@gmail.com

Zahara is an art doll that stands about 10" tall.  She is standing on a sconce that hangs easily hangs on a wall with a light weight nail.  The whole piece is about 14" tall by 12" wide.

This one of a kind doll was created and designed by me using vintage fabrics and thrift store finds.  

 I sculpted Zahara out of paperclay and attached her to a candle holder/sconce I found at a thrift shop. This little red head is draped in beautiful gold toned clothing made from vintage fabrics. She meditates silently with her hands to heart center; her mala resting around her beaded wrists.
She peacefully holds a tree pose in the middle of a lovely lotus. The lotus was created by sculpting each petal out of wire and filling with pink shear fabric, and finally embellishing with natural elements of moss and fern.

Wonderland OOAK Sculpture





$250 plus ship
Contact me at Susiewhc@gmail.com for questions or purchase

This is a one of a kind sculpture. Standing about 20" high is my version of Wonderland.
It all started with a thrift store find.  I spied an iron candle stick with a blue half-moon made of glass and saw the Cheshire Cat smiling back at me.  I couldn’t wait to get started, only to find out I would have a hard time stopping………………

As I worked in my little place I call a studio/laundry room, my mind kept willing me to add more and more to this simple candle stick than just a cheesin’ cat.  I began to build upwards making the teacup take the place of where a candle would naturally stand.  The teacup representing the infamous Mad Tea Party, and painted with hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades as to not forget the Queen of Hearts.  Nestled inside the teacup and sitting on his mushroom, is the hookah smoking, cantankerous yet wise old caterpillar. 

Taking center stage wearing a Mad Hat is a Cheshire Cat smiling in his wicked way.  This is where a battery flicker candle makes his smile even more illuminating.  Just below is the small vial of a special potion and the all-important key to Alice’s imagination, along with the pocket watch representing the illusive White Rabbit.

So wild are the flowers...........


$65.00
This 22" X 27"  Floor cloth is all hand painted with a unique crackle background and pretty little flowers stretching their stems.  There is so much texture in this piece and fits with earthy tones just perfectly. (Note: The name of the business and artist are a watermark and will not be present on your floor cloth)

Floor cloths are very durable, easy to clean and pet friendly.  They are a wonderful way to add more art to your home....art you can walk on. I personally use floor cloths in most rooms of my home, including under the kitchen table.  They all still look great!

I use a heavy weight canvas that I prepare for paint by preshrinking the fabric and hemming with mitered corners.  These floor cloths lay flat.

I prime both sides of floor cloth and add two coats of base color to decorated side.  Sanding is done between coats and finally the design is painted.  After paint cures I apply several coats of polyurethane to both sides.  This will protect from moisture and traffic.

You will receive care and installation instructions with your order.

Thank you for stopping,

This is a "made to order" product, please allow time for production and shipping.

Willow Hollow Creations: Quilts for the floor?

Willow Hollow Creations: Quilts for the floor?

Quilts for the floor?


I wish the photos were better, but this is a floor cloth I created sometime ago.  It is with one of my customers now, but it's one of my favorites.  I designed this one shortly after a dear family friend gave me a few of her quilts she collected before she passed away.  I always thought I would create a floor cloth quilt line in her honor and I still may do so.
I would love to know what you think.....feedback is oh so good.

Spring items



Bunny Makes a Wish Welcome Banner
17” X 30” hanging banner is perfect for inside or outside decorating.  Its painted surfaces are protected with polyurethane and floor wax to insure weather resistance.   Hang it by its wire in your patio or covered entry way. 
All of my work is created on raw heavy weight canvas.   I prepare the canvas for paint by preshrinking the fabric and then machine sewing a generous hem with mitered corners.  The decorated side will have two to three coats of the base color before the designing process even begins. Sanding is done between coats and finally the design is painted. After paint cures I apply several coats of polyurethane to both sides. This will protect from daily use and moisture. The finishing touch is rubbing on and buffing off some Johnson's floor wax for extra protection.

Art you just can't put away


Christmas is all tucked away until next year, all but these two little pieces. I like to keep these in my studio along with other pieces I acquire from the artists I meet online and at shows. This way I can enjoy them all year long. So much better than any commercial products. Thank you Chuck McClenning and Debb George for sharing your talents.
