About Us

I am an artist of many different levels and media, meaning pencil, charcoal etc. I also love to throw paper into the mix, old book pages, scrap book paper among other items!. I offer unique one of a kind paintings done in acrylic and watercolor. Each one has its own little personality, I even name the animals I paint to add to their uniqueness. I also offer painted wood creations, animals, holiday etc,
I have been participating in craft shows for thirty plus years and now my daughters that helped as kids are now crafters also and offer primitive items that are stitched and sewn. My husband David also adds his talent to our creations with hand crafted noodle boards, cookbook holders and serving trays. He also handmakes all my frames for my paintings.
We sell at several craft shows during the fall. While I am at retirement age I have chose to speed up instead of slow down with my business. I have always loved painting and creating unique items. I am pretty much self taught and learn from experience. The good thing about painting is if you don't like it, just paint over it and begin again!
