The Secret Garden

Welcome to my crazy little "Secret Garden". I hope you stay awhile and get inspired!

I retired from full-time in law enforcement in April 2017 and my husband is in full-time ministry at senior centers and assisted living facilities. We finally got settled in. We moved from California to North Carolina in May of 2017 and are thrilled!

History of my etsy shop creations:

In 2011, I opened my shop with hand illustrated suede and sheepskin boots, coats, gloves, vest, and jackets. The line of wearable art was called, "Wear The Word". My creations are so much more than just a fashion statement. This art form is a fusing together of three of my passions: theology, art, and fashion design. To me, creating art that can adorn a wall or brighten up a living space (which I spent many years doing) is wonderful; however, to create art that can hit the streets and go with a person as they walk through their day, takes art to another level.” It actually helps break down the barriers between strangers and sparks great conversations around deep and meaningful topics that may have never otherwise occurred.

One of the most unexpected and exciting developments was when "BEARPAW Shoes" selected me to kick off their international "Creative Expressions - Home Grown Project" Campaign. I did over 11 designs on BEARPAW boots that were seen internationally on their website and in their local store. My favorites are the toddler sized boots which make me wish I was a kid again. You've got to check them out!

In April of 2014:

We moved into a 1964, 520 sq foot, mobile home to be closer to mom as she faces the challenges of aging. There is no room to create and store jackets, boots, and handbags; so, I started a line of glass art pendants. My customers have been delighted! Especially with the personalized portrait, pet, scripture and name pendants. These are gifts that can be cherished and passed down to future generations.

As always, it is my customers that challenge me to really stretch myself artistically by asking for unique wearable art based on their vision. I invite you to read my review section. I would love to hear from you, as well.
