My husband joined me as a partner and we formed a small business named Sierra Creations. My work includes a variety of pieces ranging from smaller items such as sun catchers, candle holders, night lights, to larger framed windows, and custom orders for the locals. My husband is the woodworker in the business and creates all my frames, display stands for shows, as well as some of his own designs.

I hope you enjoy what you see and thank you for stopping by.
