My love of country has always influenced and inspired my artwork. I remember in 1976 at 10 years of age my 4th grade class celebrated our country’s 200th birthday with an Americana parade. We were decked out in red, white and blue, carrying flags and singing songs as we marched all through the neighborhood where the school was located. As an adult, I have come to understand at a deeper level why we celebrate our country. Bright Stars has an early American folk art feel with aged and faded colors as a reminder of our heritage and all we’ve endured.– Teresa Kogut

I have much gratitude to all of the customers, licensees and shop owners who have supported my work throughout the years. Thank you for making my dream co
