New Gallery! Coming in October
8012 Santa Fe Drive,
Overland Park, Kansas 66204
In our world of global, mass production, we often feel trapped in "alikeness.” Here’s the antidote.
The gallery will have all handmade art created locally, and the majority of all proceeds go to the artisans who made it in the true hope of supporting them in their creativity and showcasing it to the community.
We will also have a classroom for people who want to share what they know–and for those who want to learn it. If there’s something you want to teach, there will be others who want to learn it. Our staff can help you with design and promotion.
Come in and have a cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy the atmosphere of art and complete acceptance. Art by Avis and Others.

As a certified art therapist of over thirty years, I have faced many problems with patients who needed help in understanding their lives. The purpose of this self-help autobiography is to help readers enjoy life in a more creative way. This can be done without wasting unnecessary energy. This energy saved can add happiness and years to one’s life.
This adult book consolidates a lot of information in simple terms. My goal is to help readers get a clearer understanding of how to confront complex issues in tehri lives. The book explains how I used these concepts to not only help me through my life, but to help many others.
