Living the artful life involves surrounding yourself with things of beauty. Collections can be simple inexpensive things that catch your eye because of color , texture, pattern or end use. They often start with finding one wonderful item that inspires you to find more.
I began my collection of Tuareg bags in the early 70’s when friends gave me one and I had no idea what it was but I loved the geometric pattern and color of the leather and it could be hung on the wall like a piece of art.
Gretchen began collecting Mexican folk art then she decided to renovate her kitchen including a new color scheme. And her love of Asian decor began a collection of Chinese porcelain vases to go with the Chinese cabinet. Here is just a sampling of some of our collections.
