Welcome to
Sleeper Awakens

Having earned my art degree sometime in the Pleistocene age, I now consider myself a 'born again' artist, reawakening my creativity and joy thru illustration, painting and web design.

I like to share these pages with art from some of my friends and I hope you will visit their sites, as well! See "Guest Artist" to the right!

Enjoy your visit here.

: Moni Mauch

My newest guest artist is an old friend of mine. That is to say, she has been my friend for a very long time!

Moni has always been a remarkable artist since our high school days. She is one of the most creative and resilient artists I know. Moni has mostly pursued 3D arts -- jewelry, ceramics, textiles, glass, and most recentlly, sculpture.

Moni's work can be seen on her site at: http://monisart.com/index.html

Below is "Charlie Two Buck" -- Moni's glass sculpture built from Two Buck Chuck bottles and metal. I LOVE this guy!

Moni is very active in the Tulare, CA, Arts Council. From her bio:

I have also spent considerable time and energy helping to make art more accessible to everyone in our society. As a Board Member of the Arts Council of Tulare County I am proud of my part in bringing artists into classrooms throughout Tulare County. Helping children to appreciate and understand art at a young age can only make them better adults, and study after study has shown that students who experience art do better in math, science and critical thinking.

Below is another of Moni's works that I admire, called "Garnet":

My thanks to Moni for letting me feature her as my guest artist. You MUST check out her inspiring work! She creates wonderful and fun creatures and surroundings and her generous nature shows in every image.
