Hello and Many Thanks for visiting my website. My name is T, and I am an artist living and working out of my little old cottage studio located in Petoskey, Michigan - a quaint little town located on Lake Michigan in the northern region of the lower peninsula. This is a most blessed and wonderful place to live and work because it is filled with so much natural beauty.  I find myself constantly inspired by local flora, fauna, and fungi (and fairies, of course!) as well as by a very special local treasure known as the Petoskey stone, which is a kind of fossilized coral that lived here millions of years ago.  I am especially grateful to be able to share these things that inspire me so deeply through the work that I do, and in this way connect with others.

Another passion of mine is Cottage Gardening.  When not creating art or tromping through the woodlands, I can most often be found digging, weeding, planting, and seed collecting about the cottage gardens.  I also enjoy spending time with family & friends, reading, printmaking, bookbinding, crafting & cottage projects, music, and baking.

I do hope that you enjoy viewing my artwork and I thank you kindly for stopping by.  I can also be found on social media:
