Aside from handmade creations I enjoy family time with my husband and our crazy four year old blue headed pionus parrot (who basically runs our lives), photography, cooking and wine. Any spare time I have is usually spent creating something and trying to hone my skills.

Get to Know

While I began my journey into the handmade by creating jewelry at one point in time, I found that my interests expanded into other areas. I now alter and repurpose cigar boxes and wine bottles in addition to creating fluid (paint pour) art on canvas. I truly enjoy being able to create one of a kind pieces my buyers can proudly display in their homes. My main artist supplies are water-based acrylic paint, cigar boxes, old bottles, clay, crackle glaze and stretched canvas. I named my shop after my quirky and fun pionus parrot who swings upside down and is truly a monkey at heart.
