We are Laura Trento and Leanne Wargowsky! 

The realist and the dreamer and a pretty great team!

Sisters by birth, friends by heart, these two lovely ladies began their adventure of Creative Wings when the dreamer found a space, and convinced the realist that together – they could start something wonderful! 


This is our shoppe . . . Creative Wings Art Shoppe, at 1011 S. State Street in downtown Lockport, Illinois.  It is the location of this “Something Wonderful” – a space where people can gather in an inspiring environment to take classes, workshops, create art and spread their Creative Wings. We opened our doors on November 1st of 2016, and have spent our days taking the novice art admirer and walking them through the steps of creating their very own mixed media art work (or something equally as delightful!)


If you think you can’t – we are here to show you that YOU CAN!

Our affirming step by step classroom approach to making art will delight even the most inexperienced artists, and our monthly “Open Art” sessions will allow more seasoned creators a space and opportunity to reaffirm their love of their craft – all in our inspiring workroom.


And for those moments that you aren’t able to take a class (but need a little “pick-me-up” and inspiration), please stop by the retail section of our shoppe and take a look. The whimsical and uplifting gifts we have selected will surely FILL your creative pitcher!

The opening of our shoppe is truly a life long dream of ours. We look forward to sharing our enthusiasm and love of art with the community and are so very grateful for this opportunity to introducing our shoppe to all!

And remember . . . Never underestimate the power of YOUR Creative Wings!
