This is a GALLERY listing*

This is a custom, hand painted, childs rocking chair, done in shades of pink, brown, green, black, white and gold.

Stripes, checks, flowers and polka dots. Take it all in. It doesn't need any more explanation.

Check out some of the other Rocking Chairs I've done. This one was a family heirloom, but I can recreate this design on a new rocker for you. Or something custom.



*What is a GALLERY listing?

A gallery listing is one that showcases pieces that an Etsy customer has sent me, to transform with art. I receive the most interesting items from my clever customers. Thrift shop finds, boring pieces that they found in their attic, new pieces that have no personality. Big. Small. It doesn't matter. I paint them ALL, and love each and every commission.

Since I cater to custom, I use GALLERY listings in my shop, to show visitors, some of my transformations, to give them ideas, and to share my work and skills.

GALLERY listings can not be purchased, but if you love something you see, the hope is that you will be motivated to find something in your world, that needs a touch of whimsy. And that you'll let me be your personal, go-to artist!

Prices listed for GALLERY pieces, show what I charged the customer to add the art, to give you an idea of cost.

Contact me, I'd love to work with you!



~~ I call my style "REFINED WHIMSY". Fanciful and fun, but with a feeling of sophistication and class. No sloppy edges here! If you're a person with distinctive taste, who appreciates unique, custom, heirloom quality, functional art, then I'm the artist for you. Every single piece in my gallery can be purchased and recreated, or we can work together to design a CUSTOM treasure, perfect for your space or for a special, personal gift. CUSTOM, HAND PAINTED FURNITURE and HOME DECOR. TREAT YOURSELF. YOU DESERVE IT!! 

I specialize in custom work, so while you can immediately purchase ANY item in my shop, I also work with customers all over the world, designing and creating special pieces just for them. 

Purchase with confidence. Here is a link to my Customer Ratings. Almost 2000 sales and a 5 star rating. I am very proud of that!


Thank you for visiting my shop. I love to create, and I'm so excited to be able to share some of my artwork with you. Unless identified as READY TO SHIP, the listings in my store are painted BY THE ORDER. This allows for customization if desired, and ensures that each piece you purchase is unique, new and painted JUST FOR YOU. 

My pieces or yours. Lots of customers send me their items, to transform into a unique, whimsical art, to enjoy forever. Just contact me and we will "talk". 

I spend hours and hours in my studio, completing each project as quickly as possible. Since I paint small and large items, turnaround time varies. A vase will take closer to 1 week, while a large custom hutch may take 4-6 weeks. However, we will communicate through Etsy, to discuss your particular needs. Each customer gets individualized attention. Nothing here is mass produced or cookie cutter. How wonderful!!!! And painting to order means there is no limit on quantity, despite what the listing may note. 

Contact me. I would be honored and delighted to work with you!
