About

Inspirational Art Prints & Notecards from Original Drawings & Paintings

I've been drawing since I was a kid and have a bachelors degree in visual arts. I'm fascinated with the human figure and the myriad possibilities of features and personalities. The face is the most interesting aspect to me, and I focus on the emotional expressions of each subject.

My recent creations include colored pencil drawings of children in cute situations, and gouache paintings of expressive faces.

Over the years, I've accumulated a large collection of art from 20 years of drawing and painting. I've sold some originals in person and at art shows, but there's not much of an online market. Many people like fine art, but don't want to invest in a piece plus have it professionally framed. I realized that I could make fine art affordable and available to everyone by turning it into prints and give new life to my art portfolio.

For my unique process, I start by photographing all of my drawings and paintings with a high quality digital camera in natural lighting. Then I enhance the image on the computer so that the print quality will be vivid. The next step is to add embellishments and inspirational text. After the design is complete, I print the image on matte presentation paper from an HD quality printer that uses 6-color inks for precision printing. The results are stunning and many people want to touch the print because they see the lines of the drawing or the brush strokes and they expect to feel a texture.

I'm excited to be able to convert my drawings and paintings into art prints and notecards so that they can reach your hands, home and heart!

Frequently asked questions
Are the notecards blank inside?

Yes the notecards are blank inside.

Will you print text or images inside of the card?

No, it might damage the quality of the card to run it through the printer twice.

Will you customize the text on the outside of the card?

Sure, I'd be happy to personalize the text on the card. Please contact me for your request and I will create a mock up so that you'll see what it will look like. Please keep in mind that the text will need to properly fit the design area and I will need to format accordingly. Custom texts will be limited to certain fonts and colors to maintain the integrity of the design at the artist's discretion.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are a one-of-a-kind and will not be refundable or returnable. Please contact me with any questions you have. I'll provide a mockup of your personalized print for your approval and review, prior to printing.

Do the notecards include envelopes?

Yes, all notecards include a blank white envelope.

What type of paper is it printed on?

The art prints 8x10 and 11x14 are printed on a high quality presentation paper that has a smooth matte surface. The notecards are printed on a folded cardstock that also has a smooth matte surface. (There is no gloss on a matte print. It looks and feels like a heavier paper.) This matte paper absorbs the ink and colors and retains the tiny details in the drawings and paintings. Some people can't tell the difference from the original drawings because they can see the pencil marks.

What does "bleed" mean on the printing?

The art prints 8x10 and 11x14 art printed in a full "bleed" which means that the ink goes all the way to the edge of the paper. There are no borders. Having the image printed on the entire paper makes is easier to put in a frame because it can be moved slightly from side to side and there will still be color all the way to the edges.

What if I need to cancel my order?

I understand that life happens, so please contact me within 24 hours to cancel. I'll need to know quickly, because I will print and package up your order within a day or so . Please ask as many questions as you need before ordering so that your order is to your needs.

What age is the items for?

The products have children on them, but are intended for adults, for your 'inner child'. Please read the warning labels on each item. Some items have small parts or glass parts and present a choking hazard. Glass items are recommended for children over 12 years of age.

What about Shipping for multiple items?

I'll refund any shipping overages. Etsy adds up shipping costs instead of combining them for their calculated shipping. It's the only way I can make the items available outside of the US. I will package, weigh, and purchase a shipping label through Etsy based on size, weight, and location. If Etsy charged you more, then I will happily refund any extra amount paid over the actual shipping & handling costs. Thanks!
