www.beachworks.net and firstname.lastname@example.org will close, effective December 15, 2016
In September 2016, the monkeys emerged from an unintended, but rather lengthy hibernation to frolic with the residents at a local assisted living facility in Bremerton, Washington. After much monkey musing, it became obvious to the Monkey Maker that she is simply not inclined to manage the monkey adoptions herself. She is a Monkey Maker, after all, and she’s leaving it to the monkeys themselves to find their own way through the forest of life.
If you wish to contact Sally Jo about her monkeys or books, you are welcome to email her at email@example.com. Thank you for sharing the monkey journey!
Inspired by the beaches and forests of the Pacific Northwest, Beach Works radiates from a deep and playful inner space – an uncensored zone where artist and author Sally Jo Martine unleashes her imagination on projects that follow their own nature to animate their lives.
Martine’s handmade, one-of-a-kind original sock monkeys discover themselves somewhere between the assemblage of their body parts and subsequent adornment. Each monkey has their own story, yet they share a common purpose – to bring cuddly comfort, joy, and hope into the lives of others. A number of monkeys yearn to find a loving home. To adopt an original Beach Works’ sock monkey, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Scroll through the monkeys HERE to find the monkey that captures your heart. Adoption fees range from $45 – $165 plus shipping and handling, where applicable.
Sally Jo Martine is the author of four books, “Peeling Back the Heart: Exposing the Soul,” a loosely bound but intentional gathering of words that weaves a heart-based path through a passionate spiritual landscape, “Monkey Tales” and “Monkey Tales II,” two whimsical character-based medleys of sock monkeys depicted in photographic and biographical format, and “Survivor Tales,” a portrayal of the emotional twists and turns of two-dozen “sock monkey survivors,” as inspired by the author’s personal journey with breast cancer.
