The story of Defiant Child

My Shop is a window-lined room in our house that catches the morning sunlight. That's when I like to drink a cup of coffee at my desk and plan my projects, which are as varied as the books on my shelf. I've tried to find my niche and settle down into the creation of one type of thing, but my Sagittarian nature keeps me wandering.

The objects in my shop are made of paint, paper, glue, canvas, ink, etc., but my creativity extends out into my daily life. I like to create meals, living spaces, and recently, I began to create a family with my husband. I like to create my days, filling them with whatever the universe gives: sunlight, naps, bookstores, sandwiches and coffee, walks through the neighborhood...

I arrived at Etsy several years ago as a shopper. Several years passed, and it wasn't until 2012 that I was able to devote more time to my own shop. I hope to include more and more of my creations in the years to come. I want to make beautiful things. And with Mother Earth giving us signs that we must slow down on our consumption of her resources, I want to make those things responsibly. I try to reuse, recycle, reinvent as much as I can.
