I have also been a painter for the last 20+ years and have been showing and selling my paintings and prints in Art Festival, Fairs and Galleries all over the East Coast. I have won many accolades for my work and enjoy painting immensely. My other etsy shop
"RisingStarArt" showcases my original paintings, prints and the children's book which I wrote and illustrated "Millicent and the Faraway Moon"
