About

Pens + Paper = Happy

Pens + Paper = Happy. Simple formula. So true for me.
Happy me ---> happy art ---> happy customers!

I hand-draw, hand-color, and hand-letter all of my card designs with colored pencils, markers, and ink, sometimes a little collage, and always a steaming cup of French roast...

I have always made cards and been a letter writer, born of necessity. I grew up in a military family which meant lots of moving and new homes and new schools and constantly saying good bye to childhood friends. Rising to the challenge of staying connected, I became an ardent pen pal! I wrote long, funny letters. I drew cartoons on my letters. I decorated the envelopes. I made birthday cards and get well cards and miss you cards. Eventually I entertained the dream of connecting to the whole world this way. And now, voila, thanks to Etsy and the internet, this dream is reality.

My cards have also been sold at Trader Joe's and I currently license my card designs to Blue Mountain Arts, Boulder, CO and Card Isle, Blackburg VA. It makes me beyond happy! But the part that makes me happiest? Imagining people sending and receiving my cards and staying connected in the old-school, handmade, handwritten way, and in my opinion, without a doubt, the very best, day-brightening way...

Welcome, everyone!

    I work from my home studio, with a view of fishing boats and the occasional whale out on beautiful Monterey Bay. Sometimes I like a dollop of freshly whipped cream on my dark roast coffee...(alot of the time, actually!)
