Hi there! Welcome to my online store
In the spring of 2015 I went on a mission. The goal was to combine my original art with a useful, handcrafted product. I also wanted this item to be meaningful and memorable.
More inspiration came from my desire to create something that would resonate with nearly everybody in America. When the idea arrived, I saw it as a concept that could leap over our differences and remind us of how fortunate we are to live in this country. My thought was, 'pride without the politics.'
With my vision in place, I began to paint . . . bird by bird, state by state.
Painting all 50 American state birds, then transforming them into functional, handmade key racks has undeniably become my passion! It's my way of paying tribute to America the beautiful, and offering a solution to that age old question . . . WHERE DID I PUT MY KEYS ?!
The flock of birds have been preening their feathers in my studio for about 9 months now, and are quite ready to make their debut. So, like any proud mother of 50, I'm very pleased to present:
