My Body is a canvas

Ive been inspired to make things ever since my hands touched their first pair of scissors. I followed my heart and pursued a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Painting and Drawing at James Madison University. There I met the love of my life, a musician, who has been inspiring my art ever since. He brought out my hippie side and soon after, Echoing Waters was born.

Throughout my life as artist, I have come to live by two philosophies:

Anyone who sees the world in a different way is an artist. Once you have your dreams and visions, the rest comes naturally.

Your body is a canvas. And you are the artist. Whether it be clothing, accessories, tattoos, piercings, etc, you should always express yourself through what you wear.

My intent in establishing Echoing Waters was to bring out the hippie in all of us. My shop embodies that earthy free spirit and my art creations are a vessel for people to express that free spirit that roams inside.

I am a painter, photographer, textile artist, sculptor, and jewelry maker, and I found I can combine all my passions into my Echoing Waters creations. I continuously draw inspiration from nature and what is all around us. Each day my head is flooded with new ideas and I look forward to creating new items for my shop. At the end of the day ,my greatest aim is to inspire all my customers to indulge in their hippie side!

    The philosophy I've always lived by is your body is a canvas. You should express yourself through clothing, piercings, tattoos, and accessories the way you would paint a painting. My creations are ways to help bring your inner spirit to life.

  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Check
I accept paypal, credit card, money order, and check. If you purchase via check or money order, your order will be made, processed, and shipped out after I have received the money in my checking account. I only process orders after I have received the money into my account.

I ship via first class for lower shipping costs for buyers so packages typically arrive at their destination within 2-3 days (but keep in mind this is just an estimate and not guaranteed). I can ship using a faster service at an additional fee such as priority mail (2-3 days not guaranteed), 2 day mail (guaranteed), or overnight (guaranteed) if the buyer contacts me before purchasing an item and I will adjust the costs or add on an extra listing for them to purchase.


I ship via first class mail for lower shipping costs for buyers so International buyers must keep in mind that they may have a longer wait in receiving their orders. I also charge a flat rate fee for everywhere else for shipping. I live in the United States and therefore I am not accountable for customs as that is the buyers job to research what customs they may have to pay in accepting an order. If a buyer purchases an item, they are agreeing to pay for customs to accept their package. I do not give refunds If a customer chooses not to pay customs on their purchase and is shipped back to me.
