Humble Beginnings... original paintings

When we purchased our home 12 years ago, we made sure it had a den/office with a big window, a space that would become my studio. It is better than I imagined, with double doors and a lovely neighborhood view. Before this house, I painted in my laundry room (though I never told anyone that), squeezed between the sink and the dryer. Before that – the kitchen table. I believe that we can (& MUST!) make our amazing and worthwhile creations anywhere. Be it using a sewing machine, a laptop, paints and brushes, glue and paper, food... the rest of the world...

Souvenir of Surrender – Letting Our Children Fly

Many of my custom clients ask for a painting because they need a memento of their surrender… they are mothers needing a record of the days of breastfeeding, babywearing, co-sleeping.
