and the journey begins at the antique mall....

My mother has an amazing eye for treasure hunting.  She got me started as a young girl when we would spend the entire day at the local antique mall scavaging through aisles of junk to discover that ONE special treasure.  She opened the door for me into a glimpse of cultural history and gave me a heads start in developing an eye for collecting unique pieces.  This is where my art begins, with a visit to the flea market.  It is a voyage into the past as well as connection to my childhood.


  1. I love this! Do you have any pics of when you were a kid with a favorite treasure, or a particular object you still love that inspires you?

  3. I am always amazed how some people can hone in on a treasure in the midst of the junk. And the fact you turn the treasure into art is fabulous!

  4. Thank You!
