I have worked and lived in the Forest Lake area for the past 30 years. I grew up in the Mpls. Uptown area with its wonderful architecture, shops and lakes. Each year on the first weekend of August Uptown's streets were full of colorful people and the treasures they had created. Art and the outdoors have always been a part of my life, inspiring me to create. Art is flowing, colorful and comes from a part of your soul you want to share.
