Updates

I'm adding a new variation to my coffee sleeves: coming soon all sleeves will have the option for buttons! I'm experimenting with Yoda and Pokémon first, but there are more to come!

With my last octopus wrap sleeve out the door, I sadly have to write that the original color for the octopus has been discontinued! So, I've updated the colorway with this bold selection instead. Updates are coming soon for my other octopus too!

My newest coffee sleeves are up! I added two more Star Wars sleeves: R2-D2 and BB-8.
I'm looking forward to what I'll work on next!

About

My work is about bringing beauty to the ordinary.

I work with art as a way to spread my love of the natural world. I feel a strong connection to the Earth, and I want to spread the beauty that I see to others. My work all my personal take on the world around me. It is an infusion of beauty in the ordinary, every day things that we take for granted.

I love to mix media in my artwork to really change how the different mediums interact as I'm creating a piece. Acrylics, inks, and watercolors are what I'm using currently, and these all behave differently on canvas. The combination feels organic and playful for me. My artwork is really an extension of who I am: everything from my coffee sleeves to my series of paintings. I put my heart into each piece, and each painting is a very personal experience.

I've learned a lot about what I'm creating through different channels: my mom is a master crocheter, and she taught me so much growing up about art and finding a creative spark. I've been designing my own knits since I was young, because I love playing with different techniques. That has definitely spread to my canvases as I'm constantly willing to work with my painting mediums.

One of the unique things about this shop is that I never work from a pattern. While I may use some of my previous designs as inspiration, I'm always tweaking my creations to make an item that is truly one of a kind.

All of my coffee sleeves are made to order, and I am delighted to add any custom touches for your specific needs.
