Together is a beautiful place to be.heart️ This gift is an amazing way to capture a favorite place by having one of your photographs transformed into this vintage-style art piece!
I recently made this beautiful travel poster for a very special couple's 5 year anniversary. I would love to show you more, but that's the thing with the gift-giving business, some things are still a secret! wink

Personalized Art Prints & Custom Illustrated Gifts for Moments Near & Dear to your Heart

As a professional graphic artist, digital illustrator, branding designer, licensed surface designer, mother of a teenage drama queen, and the blacksmith's wife, I'm also the owner, creative director, and lead-designer for The Near & Dear Gift Collection.

Nearly 7 years ago, I had an idea that started with my own need to give a unique, yet thoughtful gift. As I created gifts for the people in my life, I quickly saw the possibility to document the moments of others through clear and compelling imagery and strong iconic design. I established The Near & Dear Gift Collection in 2011 and being one of the first personalized art print gift shops on Etsy, the trend set and business was booming!

Featured in US Weekly Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Huffington Post, MSN Living, Cleveland Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Grey Likes Weddings, Style Me Pretty, AND by Etsy several times, the Near & Dear Gift Collection has been the bread & butter of my little family with 25,000+ sales ranking as #31 on the top Etsy sellers list of handmade art out of 600 registered shops.

I have been fortunate enough to put my art and designs in your home and in your hands. It makes me so happy to help you create memories and share them with the people you love. Delivering a quality product and providing sincere customer service is extremely important to me. All of my packaging materials are eco-friendly and made in the USA from renewable resources. All of my POD products are from Etsy approved ethical sources.

Art Prints: Due to the nature of custom/personalized and made-to-order artwork, I cannot issue a refund once you've seen your first proof - for any reason. I will happily exchange for another type of design or work with you to find an acceptable solution. But once the initial design work has been done, there are no refunds.

T-shirts : I do not accept returns or exchanges for size issues or buyer's remorse. If you need it replaced, there is a $13 reprint fee + shipping cost. My t-shirts are printed to order by a 3rd party vendor, and this is their policy. Refer to my size chart, colors, and processing times BEFORE you order to avoid unhappy feelings. There are no refunds on t-shirts unless you cancel your order within 12hrs.
