the tea isn't poisoned...probably

I have a hard time limiting myself to any one technique, material, or theme. I love to try new projects and could probably happily occupy an elementary school art class for a month straight. I gravitate towards ridiculous extremes - Halloween, gothic and macabre to glittery pastel kawaii. I like combining unusual found objects into wearable art and even occasionally draw. Creativity and artistic talent runs through my family like a thread in a quilt - my grandmother could crochet afghans in a darkened movie theatre without taking her eyes from the screen; my father is a skilled watercolor painter and also machines his own lenses for telescopes. My aunts and cousins are painters, quilters, and creative makers. I hope my creations amuse, delight, or make the viewer wonder about my state of mind. Art is life.

Returns may be made within 10 business days from the receipt of your purchase. You will be refunded your original purchase and shipping cost AFTER I receive the returned item (though you are responsible for return shipping) and item must be returned in the same condition it was first received in. If a purchase arrives damaged, it is the buyer's responsibility to contact the USPS, as insurance is factored into the cost of shipping.

We do not accept 'buyer's remorse' returns or if an item has been altered by the buyer in any way.
