Hi Everyone! I never thought I'd be the career-switching type, but our life circumstances have led me to start my own business, selling artwork made from junk! I sell original art that I create, mainly from old windows & doors. I exhibit at regional fine art & craft fairs, and also have a website for my business. I also take orders for personalized & commissioned artwork. I love the junkmarket style website & can't wait to share some projects with everyone!
