I enjoy using my time to create, paint and re-vamp old furniture. I’ve got so many ideas in my head that sometimes I wish there were more hours in the day to accomplish them all! I also tend to obsess with ideas and see how far they go; right now it’s paint everything white and baking. As long as it’s creating something I’ll be forever proud to nurture this compulsive behaviour. Please feel free to visit me on: Personal website: http://charlenelynch.blogspot.com/ Canadian Art Print/Winn Devon: Maria (artist name) Career: RenWil (Lasalle, Quebec) Check out my portfolio and enjoy!
