Welcome to my shop. I am married for 10 years and I recently went back to work full time. I have a 7 year old daughter who keeps me busy. I am currently living in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania. I do crafts for the joy of making things and putting a smile on people's faces. I have been painting for nearly 17 years. I first started with tole painting. I entered a crafted store and they were offering beginner tole painting classes. I needed something fun for stress while I was attending college and so I decided to take the tole painting classes once a week for three years and oh what fun it was. I learned a lot and had a great teacher. After that I started painting on my own, learning from books. Then my neighbor introduced me to porcelain painting four years ago and I have been porcelain painting ever since. I love both techniques of painting. I would have never thought that my hobby would have turned into a business.
