Welcome to my world of art and reflection...

Hi, and thanks for dropping by!
Let me start by saying I absolutely love Etsy!
From the first time I logged on, I knew this was something I had to do!
I watched from the sidelines for a time, then took the plunge and bravely opened my shop in late 2010. and I couldn't be happier!
I am a huge admirer of all the wonderful and talented people who choose to be a part of this amazing community - artists who pour their heart and soul into their craft to create little bits of magic for others to appreciate and enjoy. It is an honor to stand among you.

Like many people on this website, my work is my passion.
I am an artist and writer.
I've been creating and designing for as long as I can remember. For the past eight years, I've been under license with a large greeting card company, and I continue to sell and grow my shop on Etsy. My cards and prints are sold around the world, and my work will soon will be featured in The Knot.

Beyond that, I love anything and everything to do with art and design. I think Etsy is special because it gives me the opportunity to explore new avenues and new mediums, test out new ideas, challenge myself to the limit, and basically just do the kind of stuff I love to do.

On a personal note, I am a Southern California girl, born and raised.
Life and love make me happy.
Anything quirky or whimsical makes me smile.
I believe in dreams come true.
I love the beach, the smell of the ocean, a perfect sunset.
I admire honesty, integrity, and kindness.
Family and friends are the most important things in my world.
I love children,
anything chocolate,
a beautiful song,
the sound of laughter,
animals of all kinds,
and people with big hearts who continue to inspire me each and every day.

Oh, did I mention I love chocolate? Ah, yeah.

Please enjoy. And again, thanks for stopping in and letting me share my art with you.
Have a wonderful day!
