As I look back on my humble beginnings and the challenges that I faced while opening a small business in a brand new area in 2004, I am most thankful for the extraordinary people that God continues to place in my path.

We laugh, cry, and pray for our customers. They are blessed as they come in and as they go out (whether they know it or not). I have customers tell me they really don’t know why they came in, but expressed being pleased they found my wonderful art gallery.

I count it all joy! Who knows what the next 10 years will offer? For now, I hope to be a blessing to these awesome people who give me the opportunity to use my talents in making their homes, offices and condos more beautiful.
