I started painting after I found an old window in the basement of our apartment after my son was born

I discovered a love for painting on glass and began collecting salvaged windows and mirrors to make upcycled art

I started my business and named it Makikisart

(mama and Aunt Kiki mooshed)

and jumped right into the local art scene

I painted a set of glasses for my boss at the time

Their popularity changed my focus to stemware

I still paint a variety of canvases 

From glass to wood; walls to faces

I also teach a variety of paint classes around NE Ohio
