A Dream Since Childhood...

As long as I can remember, I loved creating art and then sharing it with others. In 3rd grade when our class dressed up as the "career" we wanted to do someday, I chose "artist" while others chose doctors, firefighters, police, teachers, etc. By 4th grade I was writing and illustrating my own miniature books. During college, a professor encouraged me to pursue art professionally.

After selling some art at small, local Vermont shops, a former supervisor told me about Etsy. She encouraged me to become an Etsy shop owner. I guess you could say the rest is history!

Since I have chronic Lyme disease, the volume of new art I can create is somewhat limited, but I'd like to think that just makes each piece even more special :)

Nature Heart Studio is a labor of love for me. My creations allow you to bring the beauty of nature into your home in unique and affordable ways.

"Creating Art from within the Heart"

* whimsical animal & nature designs on magnets, coasters & more
* greeting cards featuring my photographs and original paintings
* commissions / custom art by request

Since 2002 I have suffered from chronic tick illnesses (Lyme and associated). The challenges this has brought me has only served to increase my love for creating art. The joy of seeing an image come alive from a previously blank white space keeps me going knowing that art will have a positive impact on others.

Additional policies and FAQs
Larger / Multiple Quantity Orders: Please convo for purchasing a "bulk" order or to request a custom order. Bulk orders may receive a discounted quote price. Depending on size of your order, I may not have enough stock on hand to immediately ship a bulk order, so an additional 3 weeks is probable to give me enough time to make your items.

Commissions: Custom work costs depend on materials used, time and amount of detail in the piece(s).

Retail: If you are a brick & mortar store wishing to carry Nature Heart Studio's artwork, please convo with details of your shop and which items you are interested in carrying.

To view my art in person, visit ArtHound Gallery in Essex, Vermont and Guy’s Farm & Yard in Williston, Vermont. Both locations offer a great selection of my art cards.
