  1. HI Patti, I just bought an awesome hand painted bookshelf that is signed on the back and dated 1995. Could this be one of your pieces or has someone just stuck your name on this piece. Either way, I love it.

    1. Hi, That's so cool! It could be! An early piece. Where are you and what does it look like? I'm so curious.
