I'm Carol Ann and I've been painting and teaching Tole painting since the 1980's. I enjoy painting more than just about anything!

I ship First Class or Priority Mail depending on the weight and size of the item.

Thank you for taking time to read my 'User Profile' page, and I hope you enjoy visiting my store.
