I have always loved creating things. Art class was my favorite!! I have enjoyed many mediums including oil and acrylic painting, basket and seat weaving, knitting, gourd art, teddy bear making and sewing.

Over the last several years I have enjoyed working with and experimenting with papier mache (Celluclay) I accidently invented my own recipe a while back using sawdust from my husband's sawmill when I was trying to create a new texture on one of my figurines.

I like to use cleaned recycled items for many of the bases. Glass and plastic containers, wire, and card board cylinders, are just a few of the things I'm happy to give new life to. Many of my items are more than just a folk art figurine, some are useful containers.

I have a great family! My husband and I have been married for 37 years. He was the boy nextdoor. We've know each other since we were 9 and 10 years old!! I also have a wonderful son, daughter and son-in-law and three beautiful little granddaughters that I LOVE to spend time with.

I also LOVE to cook and garden. YIKES!! There's just not enough hours in a day!!

Thanks for checking out my shop:)
