Welcome to my site! My name is Karen and I have an affinity for all things natural.
Colorful stones, beach glass, driftwood, fossils, and shells. These things have been a part of my life since childhood. From the woods to the water, I grew up exploring the outdoors, collecting items that caught my eye and learning to appreciate the beauty of the natural world.
I embellish my artwork with stones, driftwood, genuine beach glass and/or fossils from the Great Lakes – mainly from Lake Michigan. Each stone is hand-picked for its color and its shape, and many of my pieces include one or more petoskey stones. The beach glass makes wonderful jewelry!
The frames that I make for pictures and mirrors are unique in that they incorporate all of the above mentioned items together. Because I create each piece by hand, no two are exactly alike. The same is true for my "Beach Scene Ornaments," which also include beach sand and "water."
Michigan is an amazingly beautiful state. Whether collecting pictures on my camera or stones in my bucket, nature provides me with some of my favorite moments in life. My goal is to invoke happy memories from times spent enjoying the great outdoors.
