About Me​​​ ​

 I believe that no one comes into this world without a gift.  Like many, I was blessed with the gift of creativity; head spinning, all consuming creativity.  I was given a love for color and pattern and a passion for using color and pattern in many ways.
As a young woman, my dream was to 1) paint and 2) work in fashion design but when introduced to the art of interior design, my direction changed.  For twenty-five years, I worked as a free-lance interior designer. Owning a design business was a creative way to earn an income and I was blessed to meet many wonderful people along the way.
After twenty-five years in the field, I felt it was time for a change.  So, with my focus now on other creative areas, I closed shop and took out my well rested art supplies, fabrics and sewing machine.
I then discovered beads; beautiful, colorful unique beads.  The combination of this newly found medium and my spirituality lead me to creating one-of-a-kind and limited edition themed rosaries.  My husband and I work together in this mission, showcasing and selling our rosaries via our website: www.Gardenias4Lina.com. 
In addition to crafting rosaries and creating art, I create one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry, one-of-a-kind handbags and totes, wearable art and I design fabric.
All of these items will, eventually, be offered on this website but please remember that we are a new endeavor and it will take a little time to “fill our shelves.”
 Like most artists, there's are messages in my work and these messages usually relate to my faith and the hope that we may, one day, come to understand our connection to each other and to the earth wherein we live.
Thank you for your interest in my work.
May each day bring you abundant blessings.

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanely sensitive. To them… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off… They must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency they are not really alive unless they are creating.”
