Literary Art with a Vintage Vibe

A lifelong writer and artist, I create original artwork and gifts celebrating books, letters, reading, and writing. I love drawing, printmaking, making altered book and altered page collages with vintage elements, and assembling jewelry with authentic typewriter keys and vintage texts. I also love being an Etsy shop owner, and opening my studio for "First Fridays" in downtown Beaufort, SC. (*artsyletters* sends small donations to literacy charities.)

from customers:

"This was a gift to a friend, and she was floored by the wrapping and by the contents! Thank you so much for making it and making it beautiful!"

"Received my artsyletters order today. I am thrilled!! everything is lovely and the packaging was superb! "

"I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much I enjoy using the cards I bought from your Etsy store! They are so lovely and well-made -- just the perfect thing for a note."
