My art has found another new home!
I am very excited for a former business colleague of mine, Becky Banks, who I knew from back in a different lifetime when I wasn’t working full-time as an artist. On October 2, she officially opened Turning Over a New Leaf, a full service florist and gifts shop, in Gas City, Indiana.
Installing the sign is an exciting step for a new company
Through maintaining our relationship on social media, Becky has seen my career grow as an artist. Over the summer, she contacted me to inquire about selling my art in her new shop when it opened. I was flattered that she thought of me, and I am now thrilled to be a part of her new creative venture.
The moment you walk into A New Leaf, you can tell Becky and her family put many hours of hard work and love into renovating the historic building. The beautifully restored original hardwood pine floors are a perfect complement to rest of the interior design and inventory, which includes artisan gifts and fresh flowers and plants. Artwork is spaced out nicely on the walls and neatly on displays along with flowers and other gifts for purchase. It almost feels like an art gallery than a gift shop.

Currently, 17 of my original works are for sale in the gift shop, including ink drawings, watercolors and colored pencil designs, as well as prints of my work in card versions. In addition, this is the last place you can pick up remaining copies of the first edition of my coloring book Fabulous Flowers and Trees (less than 12 at last count).
I am very proud of Becky for taking the leap into running her own business. I hope you will join me in wishing her every success. If you are in or near Gas City, Ind., are, plan to stop by A New Leaf soon!
