Art has always been part of my life whether creating, teaching or sharing(even when I was 6 years old and had an art studio in the living room closet!). I have been creating all of my life and selling among the local show circuit for over 20 years. I started out selling jewelry in high school and have since built my business into its current life as Scaredy Cat Primitives (named so out of my love of felines). Today, I specialize in hand-stenciled signs and hand-sewn art dolls and home décor all reflecting my love of the past.

I love recycling and repurposing and love scouring flea markets and garage sales looking for new additions to my art.

By day I work as a member service associate at our local YMCA and also teach art classes there. By night I am usually in my studio, madly working away at a new project surrounded by my cats (who always like to think they are helping, lol).

All of my creations come to life in a non-smoking home and must pass the inspection of my four finicky felines: Bela, Saki, Ellie and Simon.
