This ornament arrived in perfect condition within days of my order, and was a great price even after adding shipping/handling. I'm sure my daughter in law will appreciate it after graduating this year with honors! Can't wait to surprise her with it. Thank you so much!
Finding a new passion late in life is very exciting, and I want to share the product of that talent with as many people as possible.
Because I painted scenery for all of the plays my husband and I directed for so many years, I came to love wood and the illusions I could create on it. I also want to be as uplifting to others in my life as possible. These two interests transferred easily to designing my own wooden pieces with sentiments that are spiritual, uplifting, meaningful, or just plain fun accompanied by images inspired by those sentiments. Whether it's furniture, plaques, or accessory pieces, the wood comes alive with beautiful thoughts and pictures. I really love to make custom pieces for people so that I can tailor make the sentiments and painting for their particular desires and needs. Thinking about the people the whole time I am working on their piece makes me feel that I come to know them by the time I am finished.
I competed in the International Art Competition of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and out of 2000 entrants, my piece was one of 200 chosen to be on exhibit in the beautiful Church Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah, and was given one of 20 awards of merit.
