Hi there everyone! Tomorrow is Mother’s Day! So Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mother’s out there. Also I would like to celebrate our dear Mother Earth and the Mother Goddess that is within us all. Both are someone to go to and cherish. I am so very Grateful each day for the life my Mom gave me and the spiritual inspiration I feel from Mother Earth and the Mother Goddess.
This week we are celebrating Sandy Cervera from our new shop of the week
As you can see Sandy is a very talented artist. She makes so many amazing handmade gifts from special leather bags, special necklaces, dream catchers, home decor and many Native inspired gifts.
Little Canary, a given name by my Grandfather, who said my baby cries sounded like a little bird, was the perfect choice for a company name. The wording “andCo” is respective of my family who encouraged me to follow my dream.
Art has always played a big part in my life. Over the years I have worked in many modes of artistic expression, oil painting, folk art, glass painting, wood burning, ceramics, and mosaics, just to name a few. It wasn’t until the early 80’s and a chance meeting with an elder, petite, Chippewa-Ottawa Indian woman, Mary DeGuvara, that would change the direction of my artistic expression once again. Her Indian name was Ma-Nee-Ke-Mu-Ge-Shik. Mary’s loom work captivated me, she was an accomplished bead worker and her best known creation was a 12- by-5-foot tapestry of the Last Supper. Her passion for beadwork became my motivation and her encouragement propelled me forward. I thank the Creator daily for His awesome gift to me and for the many people I’ve come to know as a result.
