This page is devoted to recent projects I have done. Some are personal and some are custom for clients...

As you can see I enjoy being challenged in art!

CUSTOM PAINTED Dresser

This project is not fine art but being an artist, I find myself doing redo furniture. This piece already was unique in itself being highly designed. I repainted the dresser in Provincial Blue and antiqued it in my own custom glaze to give it depth and show texture. I also did the top and trim in copper with a glass like finish.

 This historic altar was dedicated to the St. John Lutheran Church of Bartlett, TX on November 18, 1917. It had been touched up through the years & after 94 years, my husband and I believed God had spoke to our hearts to fully restore the altar. The paint was worn & peeling; the gold leaf was chipping & crazed; some of the corbels had fallen off; the statue of Jesus and the Lord's Supper plaque had extensive chips, cracks and fading of the paint. The gold leaf was too expensive to replace so I repainted all of it with a 'Dutch Metal' paint. The project took approx. 2 months.  Here are a few pics of the complete altar restoration...

I was asked to restore the angels that use to sit on the altar. They were in need of extensive repair. One angel had a wing that needed reattaching and reshaping. Both needed chips filled in all over.
