I started sewing hats and painting furniture 25 years ago as an alternative income so I could remain a stay at home mom. It worked well, but after a while I felt as if I wanted to take my creativity in a new direction. I happened to have an old summer brim hat that was getting dirty and had seen better days, so one day I got out my paints and started to work on it.
To my surprise it looked wonderful, and was so well received that I painted a few more for friends. Now here I am 8 years later, painting as much as I sew, and enjoying every minute of it! I hand paint specialty, one-of-a-kind, felted and summer brim hats with several size brims as well!
