About the Artist
I began handpainting many, many years ago. I used to paint for myself, and when I was inspired to give gifts to others.
I loved making baby gifts. In 1991 I sold tee shirts with painted pockets and holiday napkins that looked like beautiful angels. I made pillows for friends as wedding gifts. I have made scarves that are worn as wrap around dresses. And I' made a dress in honor of Obama's Inauguration which was a huge hit, and was featured on tv and on online media such as the Huffington post.
Handpainting makes ordinary things extraordinary. It enhances the everyday experience. It starts converstations. It can help marks events, people and time.
