Josie Benz doesn’t have a particular method or style to group her creations in. She’s crazy about painting, altering and repurposing anything that stays still long enough in her presence
Countless hours go into searching, collecting, rummaging, thrifting and junking for materials she can renovate, redo, reimagine, repurpose, revamp, remake, redesign, re-anything!
Josie grew up in Wyoming and Colorado. She has two degrees from the Art Institute of Colorado. Josie’s also a “Yorkie-Diva” creating Yorkshire Terrier art and accessories. She has sold numerous Yorkie-Diva pieces throughout the United States, with a lot of thanks to eBay. She’s always singing at the top of her lungs, drinks a lot of very-black Ice Tea, is Team Edward and loves to laugh.
Josie’s husband Richard (aka Junk Hunk) who lovingly endures all of her projects, assists when power tools are involved. Even though he thinks their house couldn’t hold anything else, brings home a lot of stray furniture. They have one hunting dog, two Yorkies (being lucky enough to raise four litters of Yorkie puppies) and a very tolerant tailless cat.
Here's a sampling of her work.
