I grew up in a family of creativity, making things we needed mostly from discarded items, we repurposed items and upcycled out of necessity, painting, woodworking, doll making. My grandparents came to this country as young children and were very resourceful and artistic! years ago before all of the flea market shows, shabby décor and magazine articles promoting recycling, my grandfather used to pick the neighbors trash, usually wood furnishings. He would then repurpose these items and create beautiful doll houses, lamps, tables, chairs, vanities etc...

I was inspired as a young child to do the same, to find the beauty in old things, reuse and repurpose, save the landfills, and challenge myself to create unique pieces. Older things are made better, last longer and have much more character.

I like to hunt for treasures for my shop hoping to find good homes for these special vintage items so they can live on!

I've been painting professionally for the past 32 years. I am inspired by nature and wildlife, but paint whatever subject matter moves me.

I keep busy as a muralist, painting all over Pittsburgh, but I don't sit around much and enjoy working with my hands-exploring artistic materials and techniques.
