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 designs with pens, pencils, and ink. For me, the art of handwritten script has always been a rapt love affair. As a little girl, I remember being fascinated by the swirls and swoops of cursive, and I was so impatient to learn "grown up" writing. I studied and practiced formal calligraphy over the years, striving for lettering perfection in a specific "hand" or alphabet. But these days I mostly invent my own "hand" and let the pen wander, trusting that what unfolds will have movement & joy and delight the eye.

I am an ardent and longstanding fan of great quotes ... words of truth, hope, wisdom or wit. I've been collecting quotes forever, and I love illustrating them and transforming them into cards and art pieces.

Greeting cards are a life-long indulgence and pleasure, along with all things deliciously paper. I have always designed cards for friends and family and written letters to tuck inside. I grew up tossed about the country in the nomadic lifestyle of a Navy family, which meant always saying good bye to friends. I began writing letters to stay in touch as soon as I knew how to print and I was one of the most dedicated and loyal pen pals on the planet. I also drew fun cartoons on my letters and envelopes to be entertaining. All of this, I now realize, set the stage for the cards I make today.

I have always dreamed of being able to connect to the whole world with my cards. And now I am doing just that. It is a fine life and it makes me beyond happy.

But you know what makes me happiest?
Imagining people sending and receiving my cards, feeling loved, connected, special, and smiling. I am so honored!

Welcome, everyone!

    I work from my home studio, with views of fishing boats and the occasional whale out on beautiful Monterey Bay. I'm partial to freshly whipped cream on my dark roast coffee. Plus a dusting of cinnamon, just to be fancy.
