Don't let the name fool you. =)
I am a painter and love to paint on any material. Pottery is my current passion, however, I will do it all.

For Pete's Sake is named for, our Son, Peter. With a Graphic Design degree and a retail background, I decided to work from home when Peter was one. Now, 18 years later...I am painting all of the time and am so blessed.

Peter is an important part of the business. He sets up shows, and is my best critic. He has a very good eye for detail. When he was 2 ... He asked if he could "talk to me". What he really wanted was to tell me I had painted Buzz Lightyears buttons the wrong colors. He said, "if this little boy likes Buzz as much as I do, he is going to know you did it wrong". Thus he has been known, ever since, as my Quality Control Manager. Peter is now joining me on several projects and will illustrate your home or office to be drawn and painted on a custom piece.

Want something special? Send me a message and I'll get you set up.

Thanks for looking!!

Yes it shipped right on time and I really liked it! The only thing I wish I would have requested was an exclamation mark to be added at the end of "It's A Girl"!

About

Eat, sleep, paint

I started For Pete's Sake, when our one and only Child was born. When he was 10 months old our Babysitter quit and we decided I would stay home. I started to paint again for fun and to give as gifts. Long story short, I have been painting ever since. I have painted murals, furniture, wood, glass, plastic, pottery and people.
Pete awoke the artist within me and I have never looked back. Having my own business has allowed me the freedom to work around our family schedule.
Don't be fooled there are many days I paint as many hours as I am awake. I never feel like I work, because I LoVe every minute.
I feel very blessed and am thankful for the gift I have been given.

I am an art in residence. Literally! I am a stay at home Mom that LOVES to paint! I have a degree in Graphic Design, however, have fallen in love with ceramics.
People that know me say, "if you sit still too long, I might polka dot you". No need to worry about that, but I am happy to paint for you!

Please remember to allow extra time if I am custom painting your item. =)
