I am proud to say that my husband, Curt, has been on this artistic journey with me since the very beginning. Throughout the years, my art has taken us on travels to far-off places where we made life-long friends, overcame business challenges together, and were inspired by the cultures and events we experienced along the way. My life would be colorless without my art.
While we were growing the business, we were also raising a family of four on our farm in Illinois. Throughout the years all of my children have participated in the business. My daughter, Erin, is currently the CEO, and my niece, Abby, is the Director of Merchandising and Product Development. Working with my family has made everything more fun! We have six beautiful grandchildren and divide our time between running our farm, my company, and continuing to ‘build a tradition...’ with our family.
Today, as I share my imagination and memories with you, I hope to inspire you to build new traditions with your family.
