I began showing my work in 2014 at the Artisan Village Gallery in Grayling. I am grateful for the customers who bought my work and helped me to improve and refine the beauty of the trees. I am also thankful for all of the artists and friends who gave me ideas for other products such as the candles, branded ornaments, suet feeders and buttons.
In 2016, I started doing art shows with my daughter, Courtney Michalik Kent, owner of "The Compass Points Here". In 2017 she encouraged me to apply for my own booth at a few shows.
I have since participated in the following art shows: - Leland Artist's Market in July - Holly Pop at The Old Art Building, Leland - The Little Fleet Holiday Market, Traverse City - The Holiday MRKT Share, Traverse City - Les Chêneaux Festival of Arts in Cedarville - UnCaged in Northport
I currently show my work at The Artisan Village in Grayling and The Painted Bird Gallery in Sutton's Bay.
