Closet Outsider Artist. “Sock Aliens” Originator. Custom Paper Rose Artist.

I began making Sock Monkeys a few years ago through a friend of mine. She is an Artist, Art Therapist and Mentor. She was hosting a class of youths who were making sock monkeys and creating Art of all kinds. I was immediately drawn in, and welcomed by her and her group.

From there we formed a group of Adult Sock monkey makers to create a surplus of monkeys to donate to a fantastic cause Known as “Operation Sock Monkey”. You can learn more about them on their website http://www.operationsockmonkey.com/ 
Please help them continue their great work by donating or purchasing a sock monkey kit from them and learn the joy of Sock Monkeys!

“Sock Aliens” came to me during that period while surfing the internet and getting sucked into Alien stories, crop circles and sightings and bad scary movies of abductions etc., and came to the conclusion that Aliens have gotten quite a bad rap. I think they deserve a fair shot at friendship. If this universe is as big as they say it is. Then we need to be better more fearless representatives. I would like everyone to just hold one in your hands and look into those great big “see in the dark” eyes and just be there for them. And they will be there for you. There is no power greater in the universe than Love and these fellas may just need a home to learn that. 

Love an Alienated being today!
