About

Getting Back to Basics

I trained to be a Graphic Designer. I learned to work with computers and font sizes and CMYK color palettes; where anything could be undone with a few keyboard clicks and practically anything could be manipulated. I loved it...and I still do.

But, then I found myself longing to unplug. I wanted to step away from the computer and get my hands dirty again.

And so I started drawing...in the evenings, on the couch next to my hubby, on real paper with ink pens. Lines that couldn't just be erased if they wobbled when I was distracted or didn't go quite how I'd planned.

And then I started screen printing...on my kitchen table, with my KitchenAid mixer and backyard rocks weighing down my screens and endless shirts drying in the sun out on the back porch.

And now I'm experimenting with carving my own rubber stamps and hand printing with those. I'm thrilled to find that as I turn more and more to the HAND crafted, my joy in the making just continues to grow!

    I love making things with my hands - getting messy and dirty and having art projects spread out across the kitchen table. I love having to embrace the mistakes that happen when working with pen & ink and screens that sometimes shift during printing.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 1, 2014
All designs are my original illustrations and I do all of my printing by hand!

I source quality items from secondhand shops and new contemporary clothing from well respected brands like Alternative Apparel. All items are pre washed with biodegradable detergent and preshrunk.

Please keep in mind that, as with all clothing that is recycled, there may be small signs of wear.

I'd be glad to consider offers to trade with other Etsy sellers.
