Artifactory opens January 31st!

I have had a dream my entire life to share my art and ideas with the world.  Thanks to my parents, family and friends, I am delighted to say that it has actually come to be!  This Saturday, January 31st, we officially open the doors to the public.

Artifactory is a magical place to create art embracing the past. Filled with lots of vintage goodies and unique finds, you will be inspired.  The Artifactory is the perfect home for my creations, as I always incorporate vintage materials into my work.   CurlyQMosaics is what I am known for.  Windows, calendars, and mixed media pieces are what I create.  Every single piece has a history and story all of its own.

In addition to the wonderful wares, I will be offering art classes! Inviting customers into my creative world, I will walk you through many wonderful creations that you can make and cherish forever. Incorporating tons of one-of-a-kind vintage ephemera, these will definitely be unique and coveted by many.

Here are a few sneak peeks of the store in all its glory...
