Aloha from the garden island of Kauai! I started creating wearable art when my sons were toddlers for them to wear and for gifts to give to their friends and it snowballed from there... moms asked for designs for themselves and school teachers wanted happy, bright, comfortable clothing to wear and here I am 25 years later still painting - now for my grandchildren. I am fortunate that I get to do what I love creating wearable art - I love clothes and I love art so it's a natural fit for me. It warms my heart when I see people's smiles as they look at my designs at local craft shows. And it's hard not to have the artist within inspired living in paradise!
