Online Store

We have finally done it. We have created an ONLINE STORE where you can actually purchase our items. Please be sure to check out what we have done so far and watch for the addition of our daughter Briana's jewelry and crafts.


Thanks so much everyone for your encouragement of my art....I am trying to make a go at being a self-supporting ARTIST. I am putting together a portfolio for sale, if you're interested. I have also just launched a Kickstarter project I hope you will support and spread the word about. Please go my Kickstarter project site to see the entire project, not just the video:


If you try to pursue creativity, chances are you will experience a conflict between the work you love and the practicalities of life. You must look ELSEWHERE... 

 I’m Dan Tomberlin. I’m an artist and would like you to consider funding my project I am calling The Studio Elsewhere Project. 

I’m seeking your support for the continued exploration and evolution of my drawings and artwork and to help me become a self-supporting artist. And a space to do it…

Alaska Adventure.

No time for sewing this summer. We are managing an art gallery in Denali, AK until the middle of September. I am going to try to work on an embroidered bedspread I started years ago though. Hope I can find the time.
