One-of-a-Kind Creations for Every Person and Occasion

All the art in my store is inspired by the places and experiences that shape us. During the pandemic, I started to explore my neighbourhood, and other neighbourhoods around me. I saw community forming and people coming together to make a culture within a vacuum of circumstance. Humans are a product of their environment, and I saw a need for art that celebrates the places that define us and make us feel like we belong.

All of the work in my Etsy store, is hand-drawn by me. It is not computer generated, nor machine designed. My work is like all of us beautiful humans, a little bit flawed. You might notice streets that aren’t exactly straight, or letters are not the same size. This is part of the design, and part of the creativity that comes with imperfect creations.

PS, if you have gotten this far and are wondering, what is an arpie? My initials are R.P. and since all of my art is a piece of me, I found it only fitting.
