was excited when my friend Betsy introduced me to Susan Kosharek, a talented artist from Rochester, Minnesota. Susan owns her own company called Muse Zings and also has an Etsy store. My mother, who is an amazing artist herself, has always said she is drawn to artwork that "doesn't take itself too seriously." I've definitely inherited that tendency from her. For example, I just purchased a silly, painted zebra head on which to hang our keys. It's right beside our front door and just makes me smile every time I see it. Susan's work has the same effect on me. If you scroll down, you'll see several wonderful examples of her pieces (furniture, mirrors, birdhouses, etc) and I think you'll see what I mean.
