I've been a crafter since I was a kid, and I still enjoy how creating feeds my soul. For more than 10 years I was a designer, painter, and owner of a small corporation providing hand-painted, hand-crafted items to clients. I sold my wares at Country Sampler Stores, Ben Franklin, Jewel Osco, and Ace Hardware as well as a couple of other craftmarket stores and large craft shows in the northern Illinois area. Since then I have transitioned to papercrafts and thoroughly enjoy the ease of creativity and how the industry has exploded with so many offerings. I also did contract work for several years at the Chicago Merchandise Mart doing showroom design and sales for a California Import company. As you can see, design has always been a big part of my life.
I'm currently a self-employed medical transcriptionist, and I love my job, but in my free time I love to spend time in my studio creating.
I hope I can inspire you to create something special too.
