Clever Clogs Art

So ...  the art is inspired by a lot of music, but... the MUSIC came first.    Please visit the 'original music' tab to hear a few of Tonia's original songs.  Included are 3 tracks from her CD, Between Luck & Fate.  Follow these links to ITunes or CDBaby to purchase tracks or just email if you'd like a hard copy.  

Clever Clogs Art is created by Tonia Sellers out of her home studio in Franklin, TN.   Although she has been under the influence of music all of her life, she has physically been spreading her love of music via songwriting and painting since 2008.   A creative calling during her years as a stay at home mom could only be answered in the form of music.   "What began as guitar lessons as a creative outlet set me on a path of songwriting, recording, meeting kindred spirits and ultimately painting guitars!    Music unites us, saturates our soul, inspires and comforts us … through my art, I try to give back to others a little of the happiness that music has always given to me”   

Inspired by this passion for the Song, the Soul, and the South, each piece has a heart that beats to its own rhythm, overflows with love and sparkles with spirit!   Most are created on wood, sometimes a window, cabinet doors and an occasional kitchen drawer.   All creations are unique and built upon mixed media techniques with a touch of folk art flair.   Atop the textured layers of acrylics, alcohol inks, and paper collage you’ll find whimsical guitars, vintage vinyl, blackbirds, bottle trees, hearts, juke-joints and various music & mojo-tinged themes.   Sweet and groovy sentiments are often used and seem to be the link that makes an immediate connection with a viewer.     
 

In addition to several art shows and music festivals through out the year, Clever Clogs Art can be found online via Etsy  and  7 days a week at Knick Nash in Opry Mills, Nashville, TN   (Behind Bass Pro Shop)
