"In the haunted house of life, art is the only stair that doesn't creak." ~ Tom Robbins

My debut as an artist was in first grade, when my hometown museum featured my drawings in an exhibit. I was oil painting by the fourth grade, and sewing/crafting by sixth. I have always loved to make something out of nothing--a scavenger’s mentality I inherited from my mom—and my biggest weakness is an inability to throw away or pass up interesting “found things”.

While I will always need to sculpt something whimsical, ("art for art's sake"), my attention is drawn more and more to making items useful to hearth and home. Textile arts are taking center stage for me; rug hooking, needle punch, wool applique, and quilting (oh, crazy quilting!). There is a strong pull toward the traditional work of creating a warm, comfortable and beautiful home with natural materials. I find it inspiring and satisfying.

I love the challenge of creating folk art with a vintage feel, but not exact reproductions. My approach is that of the Creative Anachronist: to use the methods and materials of the past to create a vision for today.

    I live and work in the Prescott area of Arizona, thriving in this high desert mountain country. As my work matures and I learn more about what I am compelled to create, I see changes...but I see continuity as well. There is no end of ideas.

Payment
By law I am required to add a 6.4% state sales tax to the total for purchases by Arizona Residents.

I accept Paypal and credit cards through Paypal. Payment must be received within five business days of purchase or the item will be returned to the store inventory. I also accept checks and money orders, shipping as soon as payment clears the bank.

Any item not redeemed on the layaway plan after the one-month deadline will be returned to the shop listings, and 1/2 the original deposit returned.
Shipping
Unless you specify otherwise at the time of purchase, I will use USPS first class or priority, depending on the package (i.e. when the cost difference between parcel post and priority is negligible.) I will ship anywhere, just convo me for shipping costs.

Items will be shipped within two business days of payment clearing.

In the interest of Saving the Planet, we use recycled material for packing. In the interest of getting your item to you all in one piece, we use a lot of it.
Additional policies and FAQs
Layaway Plan: Contact me if you're interested in a Layaway.

Payments must be through Paypal. I'll make two special listings for you: the first for one half payment, which will hold an item reserved for you for one month (or until a custom item is completed). The second listing will be for the remainder of the amount.

Let me know if this is a helpful plan for you!
