What is ShopART?

ShopART Midwest is an artist-centric, non-commission gallery that connects Midwest artists to the buyers who appreciate living with the arts and handcrafted items. This is a service by Twin Rivers Council for the Arts supporting our local culture makers and making it easier for anyone to bring special, handmade arts into their lives.

I started my home art in leather work about 15 years ago, after being declared legally blind. I had attended blind school at HEINES V.A. Blind Rehabilitation Center. I had been exposed to leather art many years earlier in school.


I have won 2 blue ribbons, 2 red ribbons and 2 white ribbons for my entries in the VA Creative Arts completion over several years.
