It pays to take risks!

I studied art education in college. I explored all kinds of mediums for 3-D metal sculptures, to oil painting, to watercolors and ceramics. I loved creating visually beautiful things and I loved children, so art education was a good combination of both of those passions.

It wasn't until later, when I became a stay-at-home-mom, that I took a little leap and opened an Etsy Shop and decided to put myself out there and sell my own work.

My sales were slow at first, but I kept at it. I learned that practice and consistency are invaluable, and it pays to take some risks. Over the years, I have built my shop, specializing in bright, delicate, and soft watercolor paintings.

Lately, I have gotten into painting custom portraits for my customers and it brings me such joy and fulfillment to know that I can create things that are so meaningful to people's lives.

In 2016, I had the opportunity to license some of my work to a manufacturer that sells to Hobby Lobby! It was an amazing thing to see my own artwork on a shelf at that store! And it is amazing that this opportunity came about because of my decision to open my Etsy Shop over five years ago!
