About

I am a wife, mother of two precocious children with autism (one with a deadly peanut allergy), a dyed-in-the-wool creative, and a hopeless romantic with a sweet tooth that never stops. (Ask my Prince Charming.) And so I paint, sculpt, and design unique wedding and party favors...all in flour, butter, and sugar! I've also been recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, but I'm determined to not let it keep me from my baking passion!! (I wear a mask at work now to keep from getting sick.)

I've lived all over the place--including Japan--and moved more times than I care to count. I'm a Southern girl at heart (even though I was born in Ohio), and am most comfortable in a warm climate like North Carolina or Georgia. Snow and I don't mix well--I think it's genetically inherited from my Louisiana-raised mother. :)

Before I became an entrepreneur, I was a case analyst, a calligrapher and illuminator, a graphic artist, an amateur photographer, and a teacher at a local charter school. I knit and crochet, but hate to embroider or cross-stitch. I love drawing and painting, but don't do well with oils or acrylics. I was studying and drawing manga looong before it became popular here in the U.S. (A fact I remind my children of occasionally! *grin*)

I speak Japanese and remember very little French from my high school days. I am dyslexic but love to read, find writing easy, and am abysmal at all math...except for geometry. I've always got some art project going on in my head...even if it never quite escapes into reality. LOL

Talking to me is like taking the scenic route to nowhere (as my husband claims)...you never know where you'll end up, but I love making new friends along the way, so drop me a line!
