In my prior life, I owned/ operated 1000
acre Sweetgrass Ranch in Newport, Washington. There I raised Morgan
horses, Polled Hereford Cattle, Weed free alfalfa-grass hay, yellow
labs and a couple of kids.
I am a self taught Tin Artist.
My artistic journey began in 2006 when,
taking inspiration from Great Uncle Jacks Tin Can Art, I began
to create my own.
