Artist Spotlight


Today's artist is my very talented husband, Jeff!  Woodworker, electrician, assemblage artist, painter, visionary, etc...  

He'd been thinking of converting our dark basement into a family room for many years.  Jeff visualized the entire room;  sheet rock walls, a hung ceiling, recessed lighting, electric heating, paint color, wood flooring and how to decorate it.  

He worked really hard and the results are just fabulous! 

gear assemblage

His decorating vision for the room was a Sci-fi/Retro look.

Jeff found the wooden gears online and put them together so that they ALL move when one is moved.  I think that's amazing!

Saving and assembling these bits of old equipment is a great way to create Art and recycle.  Jeff's Tardis, is now the focal point of the family room AND...

The Tardis

a functional storage space. 

CD and DVD storage

I'm sure Dr. Who fans are disappointed that it's not bigger on the inside, right?!    

all lit up

That's one heck of a night light!

To where or when would YOU travel?

After completing the Tardis, Jeff remarked that building it used a lot of woodworking skills he knew in theory, but had never practiced.  

Spoken like a true artist.  


  1. I got to see those art pieces under construction. It all came out great no wonder you are proud of him.. Congratulations on a job well done Jeff...

  2. Wow! You've got a real winner there, Queenie. I like a guy who's handy with tools. Well, actually, that's in theory. Mine isn't! I'm so impressed by all of this. Hugs from me to you both!

    P.S. The captcha code on your blog is so annoying. I've tried 7 times so far and it's rejected me. I'll try 3 more times and then give up.

  3. You're so lucky to have such a handy and creative man!

  5. It was fun to see him working on it. Listening to him describe each step as he was going to do things and then see the various stages after completion.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
