I began painting ceramics
when I was 20
and to put it simply...
I just fell in love with it...
the feel of a finished piece, the joy of opening a fired
and the excitement of not knowing exactly
how a piece will turn out is an amazing experience.
For over 20 years, I
sold my hand painted
through retail stores
such as Hallmark,
national home party
local craft shows, my
website and even QVC.
I am still fascinated with the art
of taking mud and turning it into a totally unique

I decided to turn my focus to my line of hand
and no longer offered my pottery for sale.
I am now adding my new
fabric website to my
endeavors and eagerly
look forward to sharing
my love of sewing and
primitive country decor.

2 Corinthians 4:7
I want people who either
purchase my finished wares or receive them as gifts
to know who is responsible for the joy I hope each item

them...but the first thing I paint before signing
my name is a small cross so that people will know
that a Christian created it.
It is my way of bringing honor to my Savior
for the blessing of my talent.
To try and list all of the
blessings that my loving God
has bestowed upon my family and myself would be
so I'll just elaborate on the ones that I hold most

He sent his only Son...Jesus Christ to suffer and die on
a cross for us
so that we may enjoy eternal life with him in Heaven.
I am so privileged to be able to receive him in Holy
until I meet him in eternity.

The talents God blessed me
