About

Putting it on paper

Early in my freelance illustration career, I played around with making some cards from my paintings. I gave them to family and friends, and many people came back for more (and even offered to pay for them!). One thing led to another, I joined our local Farmers Market in 2000 and went to a few shows...and my card and print business was born. Since the beginning with just some note cards, my line now includes calendars, gift cards, custom wedding printing, tiles and journals. Development is always underway for new ideas, because new ideas are fun and I like making things.

All of the art is my own, and I design my cards and ephemera from scratch, not with templates or clip art.

In an age of electronic communication, using paper is more precious than ever. I believe in the lasting power of sending your message in your own handwriting, keeping a journal or sketchbook with a real pen, and in the archival value of a beautiful paper calendar.

Thanks for stopping by. I am proud of my work, and happy to be sending out a product that I think is high quality and reflects the beauty I intended when I made the original painting.
