I was born in San Francisco, California in 1953. Spent my childhood in a Los Angeles suburb. I became a RN in 1976 and worked as a nurse until 2004. I have always been attracted to folk art and off beat places. I love things that are colorful and unusual in a one of a kind way. I have done a fair amount of traveling and I have never seen a place like the Velveteria, anywhere! So, that’s why we created it. Carl and I worked and collected all these paintings and dreamed this museum up to delight and put a smile on your face.
We’re livin’ the dream, come visit.
