Hi there! I'm Dori: a zany, random, fun-loving mother of two great kids, walker of one sweet gangly dog and another mack truck of a dog. I'm partners in crime with a quirky, complicated man. I've been a self employed artist for several years, running my own retail store, with a make -n- take art studio in the back. I also license some of my designs, and take care of wholesale customers across the country. My colorful, whimsical style comes to life in several mediums, including paint, papers, wood, textiles and more. I hope you enjoy visiting my blog, where I share my thoughts, ideas, daily life and works in progress.
