I have always Loved Art and old things with great patina. Began restyling pieces and decorating on a shoestring when my kids were young as that was what my budget called for. Loved it and was hooked for life! Sold in Buffalo shops for awhile and then opened my own shop "Stones Throw", which I loved! Unfortunatly had to close the doors in 2008 due to the Market crash. But when one door closes another opens and have since found the time again to go back to my artistic endeavors. Including Altered Art, junk art and drawing. I am currently selling at a few shops and a few Large Market Shows. Most recent JMUG Loved it! It is such a Beautiful Event! My profile image is a piece of alterd art that I did for JMUG. Consists of Silver Art Nouveau mirror(female figure,wrapped in silk ribbon and mounted on burlap facing,paper and Old frame. She sold first night at JMUG, I loved her so much that I thought to use her as profile pic until I get bored of her!
