About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Vintage Aloha

Okay, I will have to admit that I am getting in the vacation mode....our trip to Maui for 10 days and then 4 days on to the Big Island of Hawaii is just days away....and I am in need of some sun and lots of Aloha...my desktop wallpaper is a picture of a bay in Hawaii, I have been listening to Hawaiian music on Pandora. And adding the music here to my blog....

Since I love vintage cottage treasures, I also love vintage Hawaiiana. Every trip I scout for vintage treasures there too...I can't help it! I thought before my departure I would share a couple of my favorite old Hawaiian  postcard images!
