    A Likesly Story

    I heard someone once say that they believed that beauty was a basic human right, and something inside of me crumbled, in a good way.

    Growing up, my family and I didn't have a lot of money, and we had pretty untraditional ways of making it. My grandmother sold homemade tamales and tortillas to her neighbors, and my grandfather raised and sold pigs and chickens on the half-acre we lived on. Life was rough; we were scrappy and resourceful, but my grandmother always found a way to bring beauty to our lives. Beauty brings hope to the people; it reminds us even in the midst of hard times that there is goodness in the world, and it is for all of us to partake.

    My grandmother spent hours in her garden tending to her roses and sunflowers, she crocheted beautiful gowns for my dolls, and she even spent some time doing patchwork on her roof. She cared for everything that crossed her path and in someway, made it better. She was a total badass, and she is my inspiration.

    I tried to launch A Likesly Story back in 2015, in the midst of finishing up my Master's Thesis on Theology, Imagination, and the Arts, and finding my way through my first year of marriage. Obviously, it fell to the wayside as an unplanted seed.

    Now I'm back and my greatest desire is to offer beauty to the world in a way that is accessible and affordable. I'm primarily a visual artist, but have been growing my skills in the domestic arts. I want to offer goods that are both practical and beautiful, in addition to prints of my art, as a tribute to my grandmother.

    I only hope I can grace the world with as much goodness as she does
