On Etsy since 2011

Art is adaptive, fluid and ever changing. Capture it if you can...

My shop is a bit of an eclectic mix but like many other creative souls, I like making different things.
My starting point was years ago drawing as a child. Later and more formally, with black and white film photography, commercial art and graphic design, also pen and ink architectural renderings.
My portfolio includes a mix of what is considered more traditional photography along with images enhanced with layers, textures, filters and other effects blended with the original image taken with my camera.
Another creative outlet for me is making jewelry and clay figurines when I can find the time.
I welcome any questions or comments you may have about my work.

Estimated Shipping Times:

All photography prints, canvases, fabric items (pillows, totes) are considered custom orders at the time you place an order and shipped directly to you from the professional print labs I've partnered with.

Prints and Canvas order turn around is 3-5 business days.
All fabric items (pillows, totes, etc) take 3-5 business days to be printed, sewn, etc before they ship out.

Other items, photo pendant jewelry, I make in my home studio. Most are ready to ship within one or two days but each listing will specify. Please contact if you have questions on the shipping time frame before you order.

.....................................Overseas and International Buyers.......................................

Please use the custom order option and include your address, then I can make a listing for you and charge correct shipping instead of taking wild guesses....that's about as much fun as trying to pick up a glass marble with a pair of chopsticks.

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.

If you live outside the United States, please allow up to 6 weeks for your item to arrive (but hopefully much less!). The tracking number I send will follow your package until it leaves the U.S., but then it's in the hands of your country's postal system. If you haven't received your order in 6 weeks, please check that your local postal office isn't holding your package hostage for customs and/or duty fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
Image sizes include a small border to allow room for mat and framing without image loss and there is a digital signature. I've kept the signature as discreet as possible. Any watermarks you see will not be on your print, just my digital signature...not the big 'ole watermark slapped on the image. That is strictly to help prevent images from being 'lifted' without permission.

Not all of my artwork will fit a standard sized frame. I'm sorry, I know it's convenient when it will but sometimes the composition aesthetics don't fit standard frames.

Many images can be offered in sizes not listed or cropped to a different size... if it will work and still look good, I'll be happy to recrop!

Please note that different monitors show colors differently. My monitor is calibrated with the printers but yours might not be. The colors you see on your screen may vary slightly in hue or tone, also may be brighter or darker depending on your settings.
