After 26 years in a corporate environment, I made a commitment to pursue my passion for art. As a result, I developed a unique process that combines my artistic interests with my love for the New England landscape and created Embossed and Reverse Painted Lampshades. Recognizing that lampshades are an oftentimes forgotten design element, I spent many hours perfecting the techniques I use to transform my lampshades into functional art that make a statement. By hand-painting the design on the reverse side of the lampshade, it is not uncommon for the viewer to experience a moment of wonderment when the natural image is illuminated.

Nestled in between the White Mountains and the Lakes Region, you will find the historic village of Sandwich and the founding member gallery of the League of NH Craftsmen. Known to locals as the Sandwich Home Industries, our shop was organized and run by mostly craftswomen since 1926 as a way to promote local crafts and provide economic stability in rural NH. We have been offering fine hand-made products and education in the crafts ever since. When you are in the area, visit our charming historic gallery on Main Street, across from the town green. We are open seasonally, from mid-May to mid-October. Call 603-284-6831 email@example.com centersandwich.nhcrafts.org
