My name is Michelle Allen. I am a wife, mother of two sons, and grandmother of two grandsons.
My love for art began when I was at a very young age. My mother had taken me to a pottery class. In the class we were given a chose from different pieces of pottery to paint. I picked out a Raggedy Ann and Andy piece. That piece was later turned into a lamp.
So technically my first piece of art was a Raggedy Ann pottery piece.
Isn't it funny how life often comes to a full circle?
When my sons were young I began to turn my passion of art from a hobby into a career. (See "The History of Raggedy Pants" section for more!)
I absolutely love making art and am so grateful that God has blessed me with the ability to do so every day.
I would also like to express my gratitude for my dear collectors. They always bring a smile to my day. Their love for my artwork is what keeps me going.
Sincerely, Thank you.
