Teena said she became an entrepreneur when she divorced and needed to figure out a way to make a living, yet still be there at 3 p.m. when the kids came home from school. Her artwork was marketable and unique, so she stared creating something every day.
"It is and was my outlet. In 1990 I took my paper-mache to a tradeshow in Pennsylvania. Believe it or not, no one else was using glitter then. It took off right away. I sold to Tiffany's, Gumps, ABC Carpet and Home in NYC, among others."
Teena creates glittery paper-mache figures made from old and reproduction molds for all occasions. Christmas and Easter are her most popular holidays.
