On Etsy since 2009

I just want to draw.

I started my shop when 2 good friends of mine Lauren Beacham of and Malarie Burgass of Itsastitch told me I had to... always listen to your friends.

I always have been drawing but after I opened my Etsy shop(s) my life took that other hidden path in the road. I started drawing and creating constantly until it consumed me.
Having degenerative disk disease, staying in one spot for a long time can sometimes be problematic so I created different ways of sitting, standing and even laying to get the artwork out. Though I may look funny in the creative process over time nothing can stop me from finishing a piece I love.

It took me a good 3 or so years to get my own thing rolling but with patience, encouragements from all the right places and drive I am now doing what I love to do.

Hello friends!

Artwork and paper goods for the young, hip and sassy folk.

I create my art in my gorgeous studio, also known as my bedroom. It is a smoke-free environment!

I am trying to find my personal voice in the art world, i am letting the world join me on my discovering.

I am open to custom orders (or tattoo designs!), feel free to write me a little message with your idea.

I specialize in handmade and one of a kind art pieces. This means if you fall in love with something, I suggest buying it sooner rather than later, it may get snatched out from under your feet!
