When I realized how much I enjoyed running my own business, I expanded into silkscreening my designs on baby clothes and tees, doing custom logos, selling in local stores, and making whatever else I could think of. From 2011-2016, I had my own studio and store in Kingston, NY, and currently sell my work at local markets, stores and online, continuing to doodle whenever I can!
