greetings from ZouZou’s Basement!
my business is named for my grandmother:
years ago when her house was being cleaned out,
a trip to her basement yielded many items that
anyone who had been through the Great Depression
would hold on to: aluminum pie plates, jars and cans,
and terracotta flower pots. i took some of the pots,
painted a few and gave them as gifts. then people asked to
pay me to paint them, and thus, ZouZou’s Basement was born.
i actually do all of my painting and paper pieces in my attic.
it is a large room piled with paint, ribbon, paper, and bits and pieces
of ephemera. i love making notecards, journals, and other paper products
while sitting in my “paper pond”. and I love the smell of oil paint in
the morning, especially while drinking lots of coffee, eating candy, and
listening to music. my work has been described as “hopeful” --
i hope it makes you smile!
