Island oasis right here in MN-Nicollet Island that is!

A dozen years ago, my artwork was highlighted in the Travel Channel’s show “Passport to Design” featuring a facelift of this historic home on Nicollet Island.  The home is now up for sale, and the owner says the hardest thing to leave is the custom artwork throughout.  So , I decided to  reminisce and share the wonderful elements created for this world traveler:

  1. Nice post on the Oasis on Nicollet Island! Having the explanations of the symbols you utilized in these spaces makes it even more meaningful! Thanks for enhancing an already historically significant place to hang one’s hat or headdress!
