About Jane

Hello! I am Jane

The mother of 2 adult sons…and Granny to 3 beautiful grandsons…funny as I am the youngest of 4 girls. I live in Roanoke, Virginia… at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains… a place filled with beauty and inspiration.

I have always possessed a love for creating… knitting, macrame (remember that), stained glass, quilting (scrappy quilts), papercrafts, and now sketching and painting.  There is something about watching an idea in my head take form outside my head…although they are rarely the same.

As I begin a new chapter in my life…retirement, this love to create will occupy more of my waking hours.  I look forward to spending mornings sipping coffee with Jesus…the Man in my life….followed by time in my makeshift studio…  So, you will see my creations here.  And you will see me with paint covered hands.

I thank all of you who have totally inspired me and so graciously shared your gifts.  My hearts desire is to span the miles between us, to share what I have, and to be a part of this beautiful community.
