A God Given Talent - Story Behind The Art
While living in Milwaukee, WI, I asked God to give me something financially to do at home so I could be there when our son arrived home from school. While lying in bed on a Friday night on September 6, 1996, God put two words into my heart - "Make Dolls" - so I thanked him and praise God the next day I made my first two dolls. Later on I began painting and have been thankful ever since.
