About

Back to Art after retiring from a teaching career.

I have a degree from Kansas State in Fine Art. I had always wanted to be an artist but I think the Lord had other ideas that lead me to teaching Special Education for 20 years. Now its is time for another change and I find myself returning to my first love. I am thankful for the time to create art again and have been working with a wide variety of media. Esty is a great way to market my work.
The name of the shop comes from my grand dog Muggsy, and as you can see he is a VERY smart dog. He is sweet and affectionate and I love seeing pictures of him.
I started adding knitted items because my Grandmother always gave her grandchildren items she had made. Crocheted afghans and handmade quilts, whenever she sat down her hands were always busy with some work of love. I cherish the all the handmade items she gave me. I am soon to become a grandmother myself and started to create items for them. Items to cherish and give and hold with love. I would like to provide items for people to give to their family and friends, items that will last and be handed down through the generations.

    Born and raised in the great state of Nebraska. I have always enjoyed making art. I can remember when my mother painted some paint by number kits and I would hope she did not use up all the paint because I would get any left over oil paint to use

Welcome to Smart Dog Art. I have a B.F.A. and have crafted art most of my life with various kinds of media. I taught Art and Special Education for 20 years. Since retiring from teaching I have had more time to pursue my creative side. One of the things I enjoy working on are knitted articles especially items with a bit of a whimsical side. I hope you enjoy these items as well
