How it all started...
In July of 2006, I became a mom. In search of a new normal, I decided to try painting on an old glass window I found, and I loved it.
I began collecting salvaged windows and mirrors to make up-cycled art.
What started as a hobby grew into a business - a successful one. I painted a set of glasses for my boss at the time and their popularity changed my focus to stemware.
I named it Makikisart (mama and Aunt Kiki together) and jumped right into the local art scene.
Eventually, I added The Bipolar Butterfly Project to the business and the rest is history. I still adore Makikisart like my own child and find it a true escape where I can share my experiments and expression through all sort of mediums and classes around NE Ohio.
