The Name

Charles and Janet Kinnane   

Louis and Maureen Pieri

‘Charlie’ and ‘Lou’

Many knew them as Pop Kinnane and Papa Pieri.

They were the Patriarchs on both sides of my family; my outstanding Grandfathers.

These men lived the meaning of life through their sense of humor and childlike spirits. They truly taught by example with their unconditional love. By each creating their legacy with my beautiful intelligent Grandmothers.


My extraordinary Grandfathers passed within a year of each other as I was transitioning into this art career.

I named my business after them; the foundation of my support system. My Family saw my potential far earlier than I ever did.

This name drives me to succeed, and to use my gift to help others. This name guides me and grounds me.
