Let the Beauty We Love Be What We Do . . .
Wisdom is knowing I am nothing,
Love is knowing I am everything,
And between the two
My Life moves.

Years ago, a palm reader told me that I would one day make a lot of money with my hands. A surprising prediction given my very left-brained world. And while the jury is still out on the "make a lot of money" part, I found a wealth of opportunity with artistic expression.
Working under the trade name A Thousand Hearts, I have created a specialty business from my love of the artisan's craft. Picture it: Many moons ago, long before the Industrial Revolution and the advent of computers, artisans were the dominant producers of goods and services in the world. Commissioned by kings, queens and other royal patrons, these craftsmen and women brought an individualized quality and attention to detail to every product made, many prized for their uniqueness and unsurpassed beauty.
This is my mission: To do what I love--connecting my passion for beautiful, hand-made things with consumers who value creativity, uniqueness and quality--and bring other-worldly craftsmanship to a very modern world.
I offer a variety of products and services from around the world, including hand-woven textiles and fabrics, unique greeting cards, journals, special event invitations, one-of-a-kind gift books, original works of art, and exceptional photography and artistry. Some of my specialty services are shown below.
A Thousand Hearts Journals
By commissioned appointment, I meet with you or your loved one in an informal interview session--in person or by phone (subject to geographical availability). Then using information gathered and a unique brand of creative artistry, I weave together the threads of life into a magical heirloom that you and your loved ones will cherish for generations to come.
Commission this one-of-a-kind work of art for:
Children Celebrate Your Superhero
Aunts & Uncles
Your Favorite Person
Because you love them with a thousand hearts . . .
