My Table Gallery started in 2012 as cute, little 400 sq. ft. shop in front of the pottery studio of Jessie Schroeder Voss. Fellow artist and longtime friend, Lynita Wolf helped out when needed and a partnership was born. We discovered the fabulous Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in the fall of 2011 and after ordering paint several times from Illinois, decided to be the first Wisconsin Stockists of Chalk Paint®! Things moved quickly after that. Lynita was able to quit her corporate job and we found a much larger, beautiful old house in Hales Corners that is the current home of My Table Gallery. We spent a few months working on the house to make it the warm, quaint space it is today and opened in October of 2012.
Jessie has since decided to devote her time and energy to her family and thriving pottery business and has turned over the store to Lynita. Her beautiful pottery is still available at the store and Lynita and Jessie love to spend time together on decorating projects and searching for treasures in old barns and piles of junk whenever they can!
After working as a Project Manager in corporate America for over 20 years, I am thrilled to be able to finally follow my dream of having a place that supports local artists and an outlet for my creativity. I have been making jewelry for over 15 years and art for my entire life. Traveling the world has been an inspiration. I have been inspired by the sights and sounds of other cultures and I believe that inspiration is reflected in the organic, ethnic nature of my work.
In my travels, I am constantly searching through shops and flea markets for the next treasure to be worked into my own imaginative interpretation of the journey whether it be jewelry, mosaics or repurposed items.
