About

A Tale of Two Loves ~ Vintage Treasures and Handcrafted Gnomes

VINTAGE TREASURES
I love estate and garage sales and looking for vintage items for decorating and re-purposing! It has been a part of my life for many years and I enjoy every minute whether I'm alone or picking with a friend. Enjoy the finds!

A LIFE of WHIMSY / Handcrafted Gnomes
It began with a box of sharp-tipped crayons I received from my Mother. I spent hours at the kitchen table transforming newspaper-print coloring book pages into works of art. My color ran outside the lines, and multi-colored patterns filled my favorite animal and holiday-themed pages.

In my early 20’s I studied art and architectural history abroad where I found a world of color and design that fueled my yearning to paint. During college I painted with acrylics on canvas, producing large, vibrant abstracts and thickly textured landscapes. After college, I found less time to pursue my creative talents and put those aside for a traditional professional career, marriage, and motherhood.

It would be years until my desire to create returned. My first watercolor landscapes were muddy, and my pen drawings were frightening! Everything was out of proportion, but I kept at it, trying new techniques and working on my watercolor skills. Then I added markers and other mediums. I had found myself once again!

I sketched a series of characters and animals dressed up in whimsical outfits, detailing overcoats, pants, hats, dresses, and shoes. My folk art characters came to life. I licensed many of my designs for greeting cards, home products, needlepoint, and prints. It was an exciting time.
