Thanks for stopping by.
I live in a small house on a big farm in the rolling hills of Kentucky with two small men and one full size one.

I grew up on this farm. I have fond memories of sinking my toes in the sandy dirt road that ran along the fields in the hot summertime. It was on this farm that I learned the value of hard work. Even as a kid it was satisfying to see a field of hay mowed, raked, baled and stacked tightly in the barn for winter feeding. It felt good to plant a tiny seed and watch it grow into a plant dripping with tomatoes.
My husband and I are passing on these same life lessons to our boys. It is exciting to see the wonder on their faces when they experience these same things. I am so grateful that they are able to have a childhood much like mine was.

Sadly both of my parents passed away a few years back. They left us a farm, a lot of beautiful memories and a world of experience and knowledge.
Besides the farm I also inherited a love of making art from my mother along with a deep appreciation of nature. My father passed on a sense of humor with a dash of added mischief.

I earned my BFA with an emphasis in Printmaking from Northern Kentucky University in 2005. Since then I have been making art, raising children and working on our farm. When I was little my mom went "yard-saling" just about every Friday and Saturday morning. The thrill of finding some unusual and forgotten item and giving it a new life stuck with me. You can often find me searching through piles of possessions on the weekend mornings just as she did all those years ago; looking for a unique piece. We live in a small home with just enough room for us so I curate these items and list them for sale to you. Hopefully they will get a second life in a new home where they will be loved and appreciated for their beauty and function once again.

If you get a second stop by and take a look or just say hello.
