Fuck Fear ...and Fly

Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by to learn a little more about me.

I'm originally a northern girl...born and raised in New England, but I am Idaho girl at heart.

I am the mom of the sweetest little Shichon EVER. She's my copilot in life.

I am a "survivor"...of many things.
I am an activist and advocate.
I have strong views regarding the world and the issues near and dear to my heart.

But at the heart of me, I am an artist, a healthy skeptic and a purveyor of hope ...and the good life. I believe we are wired to connect.

Here on Etsy, The Brave Sparrow is simply another extension of my efforts to inspire the lives of others with reminders of our strengths, similarities, uniqueness and our powerful ability to keep going.

My store here serves as just another outlet for my basic need to connect, create and cultivate love and belonging.

Follow me on Instagram too! @thebravesparrow

    Just a creative, Idaho girl, livin' day by day, hoping - against the odds - that everything will work out just fine. All the while, saying "fuck fear" ...and learning to fly.

Welcome to The Brave Sparrow!

My work is inspired by women who find the courage to overcome life's challenges.

A little symbolism in the Sparrow:

All too often we take the sparrow for granted – small though she may be, she is certainly powerful.

It is her slightness in size that gives her advantages.

She reminds us we do not have to have the big stuff to be important, and we do not have to have the loudest voice in order be heard.

She is a master of flight, and camouflage, and as such the sparrow teaches us to use our creativity to get around in life – think outside the box, and be creative in solving our problems.

As an air animal totem, the sparrow speaks of higher thoughts and ideals.

She beckons us to keep our burdens as light as we can in order to avoid a heavy heart.
