My art is a never ending journey, I am always creating new pieces and discovering new methods and ideas.

I have been fortunate enough to not only have grown up in the art world but have a career that has allowed me to paint, design, and illustrate.
However, as a successful licensed artist I spent many years behind the scenes, working with manufacturers and publishers which was great but I wanted to work closer with the end user, the consumer.
So I started my etsy shop, A Clever Spark, in 2009 and offered a limited line of items that I hand made. I was able to connect with my customers, tryout new ideas, techniques and materials and although I stumbled a little learning the ins and outs of the computer, I found I really enjoyed it!
Although I still work in the licensing and publishing fields, A Clever Spark allows me to keep the personal connection to my customers and to the hands on small manufacturing that I find so important in this time of mass production.
