The months are changing and so are the artists!
Joining the "Meet the Artist" in the April Showcase are some REALLY amazing women, changing the world through art - Emma, Sarah, Jeanie and Cat.
WOW. April is coming to an end, but brining about so many NEW beginnings! The flowers are blooming, the fishies are swimming, the trees are gettning green, and what was once in a state of solitude is coming alive! In the midst of all this action, our featherd friends are ready to nest, gathering up this and that and prepping their nests for a birth of an entire new genreration of life...what better way to ring in the celebration of this than to talk to someone who creates fancy beautiful luxury homes to our little tweets, than Miss Cathy McAllister, or Cat as we will call her...creator of much, lover of art, and you decide the rest!!!

Yes, all the time. When my kids were much younger we made a deal, every time I finish a batch of dolls they get first pick. Each kid gets to choose one doll that needs to remain part of our household. Some batches don’t produce any that the kids (or I) are completely drawn to and sometimes there are several that we opt to keep. When there are several dolls that we don’t want to part with I will set it aside as a gift for whoever it was that did not want it sold.
I have no idea. When I look back 10 years it’s hard to tell if my place on life’s path was predictable. Part of me dreams of being an internationally recognized art doll maker, but the part of me that is shy and afraid of public recognition would rather just keep things low key and putter along at a more manageable pace. In 10 years both of my kids will have finished high school, I will no longer be a Band Parent and can potentially focus all of my energy on … what? That’s the big question. I don’t flip to the back of books to see what happens in the end, so I will keep living life one page at a time and trust that the story stays interesting and hope to be fulfilled and grateful for whatever life presents me with.
i am mezmerized, and i LOVE it.

I get my inspiration from everything. Could be from a conversation, new clothing from the store, a vintage item in an antique shop, and talented people on Etsy.
When you are not creating beautiful works of art, what do you like to do in your off-time?
Besides school I like to play golf, write stories, practice photography, hiking, and exploring.. I try to enjoy my life as much as possible before I have a kid and go back to work.
I love making treasures, but I'm rarely around when there are spots available. Rather than waiting for creativity to happen on a schedule, I can post my own treasures whenever creativity strikes me. I also use it as a place to practice my writing.
Where do you get your inspirations from?
What is your favorite colours and farics to work with?
i am in love with dark colors such as black grey, dark green, i love white colors as well.
yes, i am big fan of the smashing pumpkins, thats where i get my shop name. I love the cranberries, & Joe haisashi music.
