Crafting Great Experiences

We aim to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

We source our ingredients from local businesses providing high quality coffee, tea, and milk.

Art on Display: Abby Korotney

When I was growing up, my mother gave me art and piano lessons. Although I studied art is high school (figure drawing and sculpture), I I decided I needed a more practical degree in college. I got my MBA in 1989, but I always said I was a "right-brained" person in a "left-brained" world.

I retired from my career in market Research earlier than I had planned so that I could care for my husband after a serious back injury. Once he recovered and my kids were old enough, I had more time to pursue creative outlets.

So I began my formal instruction in painting, and combined with a lifelong love of knitting, I evolved into the artist I am today.

I am primarily an abstract palette knife painter. I love floral scenes as well as less representative art. Many of my floral paintings come from photos I have taken on my trips to the west side of Michigan.

I love color which can be seen in both my paintings and textiles. I have a never-ending desire to learn, expand, and push the limits of my creativity. Also, I have dabbled in jewelry making and working with alcohol inks which have rounded out my creative endeavors.

I hope you enjoy my show! Abby
