Every wall in my home is filled with painted windows and my favorite is always the one that I am working on! Knowing that I help the environment by keeping these vintage windows out of the landfill is a wonderful bonus. My hope is each one will become a family keepsake enjoyed for generations to come.

Each window seems to have its own personality and after many hours of TLC, lots of paint they turn into a wonderful, unique creation...
If you have an idea that has been floating in your head for a painting but lack the ability to put that onto a window I would love to paint that for you! I live in Washington State, but my paintings have safely shipped to Texas, Washington DC and many other places.
