Welcome!  My name is Pam Gill and I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit.  I've been making Early American folk art and primitives for several years now, too many to count.  I am self taught and am always learning something new and different to try in my creations.  I feel so blessed and honored to be a part of this talented group of artisans!
