You'll really need to spend some time looking at this one-of-a-kind fairy house. There are so many surprises to discover! This piece contains three residences as well as a sun room for Pearl, the unicorn. In the upper Glass House you'll find a comfy seed pod bed, a matching ottoman and purple fairy slippers on the little rug nearby. A crystal ball awaits on the small wood slice table. There are other trinkets, a book, a hand dipped candle and more! Above it all hangs a miniature chandelier. Below the Glass House is the Hole in the Knoll house. Colorful flags fly near the entrance as well as a welcoming rug and crooked broom. It is not easy to see inside the knoll, but a flashlight helps (try through the back window too.) I did take a picture of the contents before they disappeared into the knoll forever. (Available upon request) The third residence is the Hobbit House. You'll have to use your imagination for the inside of this one, but that shouldn't be too hard. This house is truly a treasure. I suggest displaying it on a turntable with a small flashlight nearby. Each time you look at it you will find a little something you hadn't seen before!

My husband and I retired to rural central Illinois from the Chicago suburbs in 2010. After the moving chaos and flurry of visitors, winter blew in and I began looking for things to do. I began substituting as well as painting small garden signs that I sold at a farmer's market. At first I just loved getting out, meeting new people and learning more about the area. Then I began to paint more and different types of things. I've painted larger signs, rain barrels, furniture, walking sticks and even a giant mushroom! Soon I moved on to painting rocks. I transform them into fairy houses,"no maintenance" Koi ponds,and recently... shoes! I'm starting out with gently worn shoes in random sizes and themes, but am working towards taking special orders to personalize shoes for weddings, proms, special occasions, or just for fun! I love a challenge and I'm excited about my new venture!

When I'm not painting, I am creating one-of-a-kind fairy houses. I've always enjoyed camping and hiking, never suspecting that one day I would find my passion by combining my interests in order to create miniature fairy houses. Now, I look at the world with a different eye and on any given day you will find stones, acorns or seed pods in my purse or pockets! When I begin a new house it isn't long before my imagination carries me away and I find it hard to stop working, even to go to bed!

My fairy houses are made from thrift store finds, gourds, natural items and miniatures that I create from odds and ends or polymer clay. My favorite part of the whole fairy house experience is when someone looks at them closely and exclaims over each new little surprise they find. When they peer inside a tiny window and notice the miniature mug or hand-dipped candle that I made, or open the wine cork mailbox to see two tiny letters, I am fulfilled. All you have to do is....Believe!

I have made thirty-five fairy houses(all signed and numbered) and at this point, have only three available. I also make what I call Fairy Villages. I sculpt tiny houses from polymer clay, then create a "village" in a vintage teacup, on a piece of driftwood, or on a flat stone. Most of my work is sold in an art gallery in our town. After a newspaper article, television interview and some speaking engagements, I have built up a bit of a following. Customers have tracked me down through Pinterest, Facebook, and my website, all to purchase custom orders. It is difficult to keep my items in stock and am always overwhelmed at Christmas! That would be...a good thing! Thank you for your interest in my work.
