I bought Bessie for my mom for her birthday and couldn't have been happier. Now Bessie is a beautiful addition to my mom's kitchen. Heather couldn't have been more helpful, including adding a birthday note to her gift. Love this store and kudos to Heather! Plan on shopping here again.

A Sparrow's Journey through this crazy, beautiful life.

I am a mixed media artist who loves to paint and create with my hands. I tend to have a variety of paintings, sculptures, jewelry and other little art gifts. I am fascinated with texture, I love seeing the evidence of the artist in paint strokes, mark making, and fingerprints in artwork. I love to explore and discover, to try out new things, to figure out how things work and why they work that way... A ‘why’ child to the very core. In a sense, all of my art is a self portrait because I am constantly exploring internally to discover the “why” of me. I have a deep yearning to share my journey and to connect with others in order to encourage, strengthen and show them that they are not alone.

    I live in rural, central Illinois with my husband and 3 pups. I love making things. Lots of things. Sometimes this world can feel pretty lonely. I hope my work encourages and inspires you... and makes you feel less alone.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the world. Yes, I do make all these things, just me, myself and I. I LOVE creating and I LOVE it when my creations find a home.

Returns and exchanges
While I do not take returns, I want you to be happy. If there's ever a problem, send me an email. I'll be happy to make things right.
Unless otherwise stated, I ship by USPS mail. All orders are shipped within five business days (Saturday & Sunday's don't count). If you need something quicker, let me know and I will try my best.

If you are International, please note that original paintings are ONLY shipped USPS Priority Mail with a tracking number. Please also be aware of any additional customs or duties that you might be charged that are an unfortunate part of purchasing Internationally. I cannot be responsible for those charges, and have no information about duties, taxes, customs, etc. - I cannot be responsible for lost international packages, as USPS first class international usually only provides tracking until the parcel leaves the U.S. Please understand that 1st Class International packages can take up to 12 weeks to arrive. I have no control over this. Shipping is managed through Etsy and PayPal, and I cannot mark International orders as "Gift", or change/alter the documentation in any way.
