I once heard it said - “Sometimes you just have to jump and build your parachute on the way down.”

As an outlet for my creative energy I opened this Etsy shop in 2009 and jumped. I started with mixed media, some collage, a few bracelets, a print or two and some decoupage pumpkins that became very popular. As a graphic artist, I realized I was most comfortable with paper arts and designing on my computer so the shop has become digital and analog collage, art prints, and greeting cards. I have sold my art across the USA and around the world, licensed my work to a large greeting card company and met some wonderful artists and customers along the way.

There is always something new here, so join me as I jump. Completely untrained and foolishly unrestrained by theory, technique or logic, I'm free falling without a net. Who knows where this damn parachute will land.
