Dancing Bear Door

A door had been moved during renovation of a garage and a piece of plywood was put in it's place. Nancy turned that blank space into a fake door - complete with a real door knob and window frame.

The image in the window was adapted from William Beard's painting Dancing Bears.

The door is on the garage at the Front Porch Coffee & Tea Co., Ely Minnesota

You Are A Star

This 29' x 8' mural is in the entry way of John Glenn ALP in Maplewood, Minnesota. It was created to help build community within the building and bring more of an elementary school feeling to the sight, while celebrating the differences of John Glenn students. It was designed to help remind the student they are stars who can do incredible things. Hand prints were added so incoming students could match their hand to one on the mural and feel more of a connection to the school. 

Family Tree Wall

This tree depicts a family with three primary branches. Each branch holds photos of one of three related families. The branch on the right has members of the husband's family. The center branch the wife's family. The left branch is the husband, wife, their children and grandchildren.


A Family Tree can be commissioned. Fees are based on the size of the tree and the number of members in the family.

This mural extends around the building and was designed to give life back to and old building while leaving an uncluttered

Partial funding for this mural was from the Donald G. Gardner Humanities Trust Grant.
