Making something beautiful from what's tossed aside as useless and dull, or just overlooked, excites me endlessly. I really see the whole process as some of the best therapy available. I have a formal background in education and special education, but have been painfully in love with fabrics and colors since i was 8.

I love, love, love being spontaneous, fighting for justice, listening to be sure i understand, gardening, rehab-gardening...re-claiming the Earth for Good, cleaning-up trash (okay not "love, love, love....just one 'love'), finding surprises everywhere i look, laughing, giving special gifts--especially to people who aren't expecting much....and maybe nothing from me....ice cream, dark chocolate peanut butter cups, great water, great sleep, mashed potatoes.

I hate, that time is so pressurizing, that there's…

I hate, that time is so pressurizing, that there's not enough Love in the world (yet), that i ever have to go to bed, that there's so much injustice, that it's so hard to communicate well, that i'm such a bad photographer, that i can't listen to music constantly and it bothers many people when you want to play the same song 50 times in a row.

i also am not very fond of eating much meat including chicken and turkey.


My husband Vincent, who builds all the furniture in our shop, is an artist at heart. Needing to care for 4 children took him in many directions in life, but his heart has never strayed from doing creative things he can get passionate about. He has done soooooo many things, including decorative wall finishing of all kinds, art restoration, glass etching, design/build work and contracting. These days he 'plays' with wood as much as he possibly can. We are fortunate enough to be able to live at the same place where we work, so, so sweet and makes it easier to focus well on work.
