Tell us about yourself, your shop, and what you make.
So what do I want to be when I grow up,an artist! I have decided that
life is too short. I could be in an office job in misery. I will not do
that anymore. To add to that I have medical issues that disable
(temporarily) from working. Recently I have made a choice to have a
complete cutting off of all my lady parts inside. I have Endometreosis. I
am in pain everyday. So my husband and I have made the decision to stop
trying and adopt.
My shop will be all about color hence the name. Now In Color. I am

Ah my favorite piece is hanging up in my house. It is my angel. I
painted in my senior year in high school. I would never be able to part
with it. I have a huge emotional attachment to it. My guardian angel, my
What inspires you?
People do. Positive energy. Love. People who actually
are interested in what I do for a living. Lake Superior is a ten minute
walk from my house. Yoga. Tibetan Buddhism. Grace. Wisdom. My husband. I
want to adopt a child one day, this is my greatest inspiration.
