About

Artist-turned-cardmaker

I am a mixed media artist who started making cards. I love making cards in the traditional way along with mixing in some mixed media techniques. Each card is made individually, by hand.

Card making is very similar 2 mixed media in that they can both be very messy. I love the wabi-sabi look in everything I do.Handmade cards are wabi-sabi in their very essence. Hard to find one that is perfect but they are all charming! Just think of all the care that went into a card made without a machine.

Sometimes the glue strip just won't go down straight. The cutter rarely seems to cut straight. No matter how straight the line the card edges hardly ever match when folded. But the design is always right because that's what we are able to control. If you want perfectly straight lines, head to Hallmark. But if you want some character and a real feel, you're in the right place.

I am happy to gift wrap an original artwork before shipping at no extra charge to you for the process of gift wrapping. If, however, the Item requires a larger box due to the gift wrap, which results in higher shipping costs, you will have to pay the extra.

Something on my card is not straight

Handmade cards are by nature imperfect. Furthermore, I have a muscle disease which comes with a tremor. I do the best I can to cut straight and line things up, but if you are truly unhappy, please send me a message.

An element fell off of my card

I use approximately 10 types of adhesive, each appropriate for every part of my cards. However I cannot control temperature, so if the weather has caused something to fall off, please contact me so that I can tell you the appropriate adhesive to reattach the item to the card.
