Artists
Rissa Whalen: Owner, Website Designer, Customer Service, Shipping and Receiving, Artist
I love to create art in many different mediums spanning from crochet, jewelry, leather and now painting. I have recently taken up traditional painting in both oil and acrylic and will offer new work in this area. I also love to garden and am an aspiring herbalist, creating products from my garden.  My other passion includes a life long affinity for the metaphysical and that will reflect in my items. 
I am also the owner, website designer, customer service and shipping and receiving so if you have any questions I am the lady to go to.  You can reach me at rjwhalen@att.net or by our facebook page www.facebook.com/roseandshadow
