Hello!

I'm a 30-year-old artist from London, Ontario, Canada, and I'm so glad you've found my shop!

Art is my reason for being. It's turned into one of my greatest survival tools in navigating this intense world of ours.

I've had the privilege of growing up in an artistic family. When my life became sabotaged by paralyzing depression, my mom gently encouraged me to do keep doing art and making crafts.

As an Etsy seller, I am conscious to make and sell items that share a positive message with the world. Some of my items are meant to educate and inspire others around mental health, and others are aimed at just making people smile. Both outcomes are what I live for.

When I'm not on Etsy, I'm writing for my blog: "Daisies and Bruises: The Art of Living with Depression" at daisiesandbruises.com.

When I'm not writing or crafting, I'm playing with my Boston Terrier/Pug mix, Digby, or at least rescuing some craft supplies from his mouth as he zips around my apartment.

I would love to hear from you, so never hesitate to send me a conversation on Etsy or email me directly at daisiesnbruises [!at] gmail.com.

Be well!

Love Erin
