Welcome to my wonderful world of animals, hand-painted coin jewelry, and heart warming stories about people and their connection to animals...
I am an artist and an animal lover. Hopelessly in love, pretty much on both scores.
Everyone knows that animals and a love of nature brings us happiness & a fuller life. Recent scientific studies have proven that even reading or seeing photos of cute animals and the relationships they have with people can reduce your stress and make you happier.

I started fostering Mac at 2 days old. He was one of those kittens that stood out, and we ended up adopting him. Of course, I think all of the kittens I have fostered are wonderful, but once in a while there is one that becomes a "failed foster." A good kind of failure!

Duffy is the perfect kitten. Pretty amazing considering he was found by himself and turned in to my local Humane Society at 3 days old. Read my story of raising him & see the photos of being his "mom" until he was old enough to be adopted.
