  • Favorite DecoArt product: DecoArt® Glass Paint™ - I LOVE painting on all kinds of surfaces but glass painting is my favorite. Lately, I've really gotten into reverse glass painting. I love taking plain ordinary glass pieces and completely transforming them with paint!
  • How long have you been with DecoArt®? - Since 2014
  • Why do you love to paint? - I love painting for many reasons. When I'm really into a project I sometimes get lost and don't even realize how long I've been working on something, What I love most about painting is the end result, If I created something that makes people smile, then I consider that a job well done.
  • Favorite paint project ever? - I have a few favorite projects because I created them using random "found objects"
