About

Making pieces that are sassy and sweet and show my love of Jesus.

I get asked all of the time: "How did you start making art?" and I'll be honest with y'all. I don't know how to answer that. Growing up, my mom was always making art around me. She made paintings, birthday cakes, Halloween costumes and the walls of the house were always changing colors. She also has tattoos, which are one of my favorite forms of art. So, I started doodling on papers and scribbling Sharpie on my hands and arms to be like my mom.

Fast forward to the summer of 2013. I was doing an internship in Florida and I was about to move back to Tuscaloosa, AL to work another internship. The difference between the two? Florida paid me. Tuscaloosa did not. So, in an attempt to help me pay for rent, I started painting pieces for my roommates and co-workers. That grew into a Facebook page, which eventually grew into this shop.

After a few months at the internship, I was brought on staff, but I felt like it wasn't a coincidence that the art had taken off. I loved making art and I loved telling people that all of the money was going to help me to share Jesus, since my internship was a campus ministry. Three years later, I'm still working at the campus ministry and I'm still doing art and I'm still sharing my love for Jesus, both at work and through art.

I love making custom pieces for people. Almost every single piece I have listed once started as a custom idea piece or was inspired by worship music. I love when people contact me and want to make something special for a friend, their mom or sister, or a co-worker. And I love getting to incorporate their favorite bible verses into one-of-a-kind pieces.

So, only one question remains: what will we make together for you?

My business formed out of a fun hobby to help raise funds for my support raising when I worked in college ministry. I'm currently in grad school at the University of Alabama. I love doodling in my planner, playing with layouts and making on-of-a-kind pieces for you and your special loves. Let's make something fun together!
