For years I scoured estate sales for battered and rejected furniture pieces to restore and paint. Designers like MacKenzie-Childs inspired me to try unusual color combinations and patterns. I painted for myself and others and had run out of room for full-size furniture when I happened upon a dollhouse. A whole new world opened up for me! Now I focus exclusively on whimsical miniatures. I prefer 1:12 scale and I have more ideas than time! As soon as I retire from teaching High School Spanish, miniatures will become my full time passion! I am currently doing shows in Chicago and creating for individuals upon request. Thank you for visiting!
