Meet the Crew
We’re all about family values, especially expression, growth, and pursuing our passions. And we want to encourage you to do the same! We’re crazy, cozy, mostly cheerful, and sometimes cranky, but always crafty. So come on over, join the crew!
I juggle many roles just like you. I’m a daughter, sister, friend, wife, foster mom of six, professional, and artist doing my best with what I’ve got for the people I love. And I do it all with my secret weapon: positivity (often accompanied with humor). As a daughter of an artist and an engineer, my perspective is equal parts creativity & curiosity. I seek out the inherent beauty and value in everything and everyone. And when I find it, I’m passionate about growing that beauty, whether it be through artistic creation or encouraging others to harness their own gifts.
Taking one good look at me would pretty much tell you everything about me. Blue hair, piercings, in a pair of horse riding breeches and tall socks with something funny on them. All probably the color of blue too. So, why blue? Blue is the color of trust, competence, peace, loyalty and intellect. All things I aspire to embody in myself. Along with a touch of kindness but in a bad ass kind of way.
It’s hard to describe what it’s like when I’m immersed in the creative flow. Time flies. Hours pass in what felt like minutes. My naturally distracted mind is focused on what my hands are doing, and nothing else. I get lost in my own world. When I return to reality, I feel rejuvenated and spiritually uplifted. That’s why I love sharing my art and inspiring creativity in others. I want to create that elated experience for you, to guide you to a magical place where the thrill of limitless possibilities is a reality.
I’m feisty and fun loving and often considered the “bulldog” of our family — I’m fiercely protective of and loyal to the ones I love. You’re most likely to find me outside fishing, hunting, hammock camping, or in the glass studio. Finding out how things work intrigues me; this curiosity was my gateway to glass art and there’s no turning back now.
I’m an engineer. I’m a critical thinker, a master problem solver and repairman for all things mechanical. My creativity shines in the kitchen where I mix uncommon ingredients to make delicious new dishes. I like to work with my hands and build the structural framework for the families artistic endeavors. Together we’re a crafty crew.
I’m a sarcastic softy. You’ll find me in the great outdoors fishing, hunting, or working with my hands.
