Noreen Brownlee D’Onofrio

Nearly everything you see in our store is one of a kind. Noreen is very creative and resourceful in making unique gifts & novelties.

Noreen has been painting, drawing and creating her entire life. She has been a fan of beading and jewelry making for the last 20 years, she and enjoys teaching, and sharing her talents with others as she learns new things daily herself. Noreen has a passion for lifting spirits and inspiring people. She studied Psychology and Addiction Therapy for years, and although not licensed in the field, she loves reaching out to people inspiring and empowering them through art. Especially those who need encouragement, support, friends and to feel a part of something good. Being with like-minded people who care is great therapy in itself.

Many of her gifts and novelties pertain to recovery, spirituality, love, healing and feeding the soul.

Noreen always envisioned a place for artists to come together to create, sharing their talents, being supportive of one another and making new friends and family.

It is also important to Noreen to have her students use imagination to create their own special unique piece of art, making a one of a kind creation that could be a lasting artifact which could be passed down.
