About

I’ve been an artist all my life.

First I was a graphic designer, then I became a picture book illustrator and more recently I began designing jewelry. My favorite mediums are watercolor, polymer clay, silver and copper.

I carefully design and hand-craft all my jewelry from polymer clay and metals. Polymer clay is an incredibly versatile medium that can be mixed to match any color, molded, painted, carved, embellished and more. It’s lightweight and durable, which makes it perfect for earrings and other jewelry.

My watercolor are professionally scanned, so they're almost identical to the originals. I have my art and photographs professionally printed on acid-free paper.

For my frames, I order unfinished wooden frames which I paint with chalk-style paint, distress them to achieve a well-loved look and then stencil them with my own designs. When dry, I rub them with natural beeswax and carnuba wax to protect the matte finish.

After receiving several frames with glass that was broken during shipping, I decided sheets of acrylic were a very good idea instead of glass. They’re safer in kids’ rooms, plus the non-glare finish makes the art easier to see.

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS

Please contact me with the custom order you have in mind. I’ll let you know if I can do it, how much it would cost and how long it would take. I’ll ask you for at least one approval of a proof before I finish the product so you know exactly what you’re getting before it’s shipped.

Following are some examples of custom orders from low cost to higher cost.

1.) A print only. No frame.

2.) A matted print. These can come with either stenciled or plain mats. You may need to buy custom framing.

3.) A different colored frame. If you want pink, for example, that’s easy. If you want a very specific color, I’ll ask you to snail mail me a color swatch. Chalk paint comes in limited colors, so if it’s within that spectrum, I should be able to match it.

4.) A different sized print* and/or frame.** I offer these standard-sized frames: 5X5, 5X7, 7X7 and 8X10. I could order these additional standard sizes: 4X6, 8X8, 9X12, 10X13, 11X14, 11X17, 12X12 or larger.

5.) A custom-sized print* and/or frame.**

6.) A custom illustration or stencil design. If you’re serious about an idea, whether its vague or specific, please ask.

* Prints can be enlarged up to 175% of the size of the original art. Much larger and they start to lose quality.
** Different sized frames require me to alter the stencil art and cut a new stencil.
