About

I've been an artist since I was 7 and was able to do the job I always wanted - being a graphic designer for TV and a courtroom illustrator. I have had several jobs in the graphic design field while pursuing my own design business.
I have designed everything from furniture to neon wall art to designing my own frame line. And then I saw a laser engraver and knew my new area I wanted to take my creativity.

I opened up my engraving business in Tucson and did the typical engraving shop items. After I moved to Phoenix after a drastic life change, I met a very smart young man who was "into" light. I, had in the past, used light (neon and others) in creating but his is LED light. So putting our talents together, we came up with the line of lighted cake toppers that you see in my shop.

I, had in the past, used light (neon and others) in creating but his is LED light. So putting our talents together, we came up with the line of lighted cake toppers that you see in my shop. I have designs for just about every occasion but wedding ones seem to be a hit - and if the brides don't see it they ask me to create for them which I immensely enjoy. I love the thought that I am creating something so special that they want to have it in their wedding.

The process of creating these custom pieces of art for you involves placing a piece of acrylic into a laser engraver, selecting the design and setting it among designs in a drawing program. It is cut and then engraved in the engraver. When done, it's removed, polished and examined for scratches, burs, etc, Once perfect. it's bagged in an organza fabric bag.

I love what I do and welcome to help anyone create that something "special" for what ever occasion/event. This has become my livelihood and appreciate all of you who have supported my shop. I look forward to working with everyone in the Etsy community and THANK YOU for supporting my dream, my passion and most of all my spirit!
