Company Summary

I want folks to know that people who are disabled or who have mental illness are also valuable, fascinating contributors to society! I'd like to help other disabled and mentally ill people earn money and respect for their endeavors. I believe upscale shops where they could sell their items would promote respect (both self-respect and from others) & help supplement limited incomes.

    I love nature, science and adventure, which often reflects in my art. I've jumped out of an airplane, gone rock-climbing, caving and medieval sword-fighting for many years. I was a registered nurse for 25 years before life/depression/medication scattered my mind to the four winds. I create art from my experience- with fractals, jewelry, paintings & fabric designs springing from this mix. I am on Etsy and Spoonflower.
