My studio is outside of Washington DC in Northern Virginia.

My pricing is based on how much it costs to make my items and the time I devote to my work. My items are labor intensive and it shows in the quality of my work. The prints are high quality and processed with Claria archival ink. To be able to keep producing high quality products, I must make a reasonable amount of money for my time. Thanks for shopping my site. I hope my love for what I do shows.

I am new to Etsy so I do not have a rating here, but I am a seller on another auction site with an A+ rating.
