I spent years teaching high school art and now can practice what I preached. I would love to have you visit me and see how these are made. Perhaps you will want to commission a custom piece. My work is also available at ‎Gravers Lane Gallery in Chestnut Hill, PA, Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA, and Tiger Lily Dress Shop in Phoenix, AZ. I am part of the TAFA team and the Artizan Made Team.
