Telling stories through watercolor and illustration

Welcome to my shop!

I sell prints and originals of my watercolor paintings and illustrations, in addition to other graphic design projects if I am inspired by something new. Ultimately, my goal is to tell stories through my art. This is why I offer scenic watercolor paintings and prints inspired by my worldwide adventures, as well as imaginative anthropormorphic pieces like my Killer Pomegranates paintings and animal illustrations.

I paint with Winsor and Newton lightfast watercolors on 140 lb or 300 lb Arches acid-free cold press watercolor paper. I'm a fan of various techniques and often use salt, frisket or a spatter brush. When I illustrate, I often do so digitally; I'll sketch outlines by hand and add color and details digitally.

I print most of my reproductions and cards from my own printer. Greeting cards are hand-cut and hand-folded. For large canvas wrap prints, I may work with an external printer, but all work is shipped by me directly to you.

Welcome to my shop! I'm a painter, illustrator and active traveler, and I love telling stories through my artwork. My pieces range from landscapes that capture a unique moment in time, to illustrations of strange creatures and situations, to greeting cards for special occasions.

Interested in a custom order?
I will happily work with you on the following custom order types:
- Alternate print sizes for any prints I currently offer (including canvas wrap prints)
- A greeting card based on any of my paintings, if not currently offered.
- Occasionally I also take custom orders for animal paintings (like my nautical hearts series) or landscape paintings. I will retain rights to all custom artwork unless agreed upon otherwise.

Returns and exchanges

Please reach out to me within 7 days of delivery if you have any concerns about an order you've received. You may return items for the full purchase price within 7 days of shipping date. However, I cannot refund postage, so please note that you'll be responsible for any postage charges incurred for returned goods. In the event you've received a damaged item, please contact me right away.


Due to the often unique or custom nature of my artwork, as well as variability in inventory, I do not offer exchanges.


Due to the different ways that monitors display colors, the colors in the physical artwork you receive may be slightly different than what you see on your screen. Please consider this when receiving your artwork.

I currently accept both PayPal and credit cards.


Customers outside of the US are responsible for all customs/VAT/duties that may be collected when you receive your items. I am not allowed to charge you these fees or taxes on Etsy, and it is illegal for me to mark items I ship as gifts to avoid these fees. UK customers, you can read this resource for more information about your tax obligations:

Unfortunately I cannot provide estimates on these fees as they vary widely based on country, currency exchange rates, and more.

Do you live outside of the USA? I happily accept international orders for most of my items (with the exception of wood ornaments, as some countries restrict wooden imports). Please message me before placing your order if you have any questions.


I work hard to protect your artwork in transit! Prints, greeting cards and original paintings will ship in a rigid envelope, box or, occasionally, a poster tube. For international customers, this may mean a slightly higher shipping cost, but rigid mailers offer much more protection.


I will ship to your Etsy mailing address, so please make sure this is correct at the time of placing an order. I will not ship to your PayPal address if it is different.


Greeting cards, small/medium art prints & small/medium originals ship with USPS First Class Mail, which delivers in 2-5 business days for the continental US and 1-4 weeks for Alaska, Hawaii and countries outside of the US.

Large art prints, large originals and ready-to-hang canvas prints ship using USPS Parcel Post/USPS First Class International, which typically delivers in 2-9 business days for the continental US or 1-4 weeks for Alaska, Hawaii, and outside countries.


If you would like an expedited option to ensure delivery by a certain date, please send me a message *before* placing an order. I can offer Priority Mail Express which, while more expensive, is guaranteed. Please note that I do not recommend regular Priority Mail as an expedited option as it can still take the post office up to 9 days to deliver.


Due to the customs processing times of different countries, delivery dates can vary widely for destinations outside of the continental US. USPS provides limited tracking information in these circumstances, so contact me before placing your order if you'd like to upgrade to another option.


Art prints & originals have shipping insurance included as part of the shipping cost. Greeting cards and ornaments will not be insured.
