Ann Lihl's Profile

About

Hi there! My name is Ann and I'm a decorative painter and paper crafter.

What I love the most is to paint Christmas ornaments and other holiday decor. My love of ornaments started when I was a child. I started off with painting plaster ornaments, then gradually I went to wood ornaments. About 2004 or so, I decided to take some painting classes and I was introduced to glass painting.

It dawned on me that glass allowed me a clean blank slate to design and paint my very own Christmas ornaments to give as gifts to family and friends. I got so enamored with painting glass ornaments, that I just couldn't stop painting them!

A couple of years passed, and friends were saying, "you need to sell these! You are getting better at your painting skills!" Then I decided to put my toe out there by selling at my…

A couple of years passed, and friends were saying, "you need to sell these! You are getting better at your painting skills!" Then I decided to put my toe out there by selling at my local farmer's market.

Over the years I've sold at craft fairs and festivals, churches and other kinds of events, and I enjoy meeting people of all ages (including the little ones who love the sparkle of it all). That part is most fun in selling at events. I have to say though, selling online is my greatest pleasure because I can mail my items all over the United States and even internationally. It thrills me to know that someone far away is enjoying my little items of art and I hope to thrill more!

If you have any questions, message me on ETSY. Please though, don't ask for free items or to discount my items. I give my items away for different events and fundraisers locally (so I am a very giving person), but to be asked to send stuff free in the mail, I just can't do it. It takes so much precious time and energy to create and paint my art, and I feel that if you appreciate it, you'll reward my skills by paying for it. I know that my time and skills is worth your money. I stand by my product as it is painted by hand, and is truly one of a kind. My heart and soul is poured into each piece that is created. I really appreciate your understanding and knowing that you will enjoy my art!
