Browne's Irish Market and Deli


What an amazing place! I feel as though I have stepped back in time. And who knew this treasure was right under my nose? Browne's was established in 1887 and is the oldest Irish business in all of North America. They serve delicious Irish food (the potato soup is a must eat) and have an awesome market where you can browse through all kinds of Irish imports and handmade goods.

I was so impressed by the friendliness of the owners (still a family owned business) and staff (Hi Wendy!) that I created this piece using their brown paper gift sack... the same sack I had filled with items I had to have from their market. So if you are visiting the Kansas City area, or if you are a native, you must visit here... you will be welcomed!

Birth Art Work


Last month I was a vendor at the CAPPA conference in Kansas City. What a wild, wonderful bunch of women. These birth professionals take their work seriously. So I created some unique art to grace the walls of their homes and offices. A total of 8 new pieces, I will post one here and you can view the rest in my etsy shop. Originals and prints are available.
