Meet The Artist...


~This picture is a self portrait I did when I was a wee one back in 1969. I'm not quite sure why I'm sportin' me a pair of blue eyebrows though. I say forget matching your lipstick shade to your outfit, it's your eyebrows that should match. (makes sense to me)


So, let me tell you a lil' something about myself. My husband and I live in the beautiful rural Central New York countryside. I have monopolized all the rooms in our farmhouse with fabric, sewing needles, thread, doll body parts, paint, clay and endless pairs of "cheaters" which I can never find when I need them.

I have a love for nature and American history.

Growing up, I was surrounded by the love of antiques and collectibles. My creations are inspired by that love. I've been blessed with my Mama's God-given talent for creativity (along with her nuttiness too) and my Daddy's sense of humor. I know he's watching over me from Heaven, cracking a corny joke or two and keeping Him in stitches. I'll bet my Mama is redecorating Heaven.

Quality crafts(wo)menship...
I have very high standards and take great pride in my art. There's a lil' part of me in every doll I make, and it shows.

I have been creating for as long as I can remember and will continue until these tired ol’ hands won’t allow me to. This is my passion.
If my creations and silliness bring a smile to your face, then I’ve accomplished what I set out to do. It’s that simple.

As always... Thank you kindly for stopping by.

Take care and God bless.
