Announcement    Welcome to Happie Hippie Chick Designs Art where you'll find all of my funny art as well as stock photography that is available for personal or commercial use. I also offer some SVG files for crafters that come with my easy to understand commercial license.

I've had a love of photography since childhood when I received my first camera, a Polaroid, for Christmas. Film made photography an expensive hobby, but when digital cameras became available, I was able to rekindle my love for the art. I now shoot with a Nikon d5100 and have a passion for macro photography.

I have recently added an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to my toolbox and cannot believe how fun drawing is again! I look forward to sharing all of my new creations here and hope you will enjoy them as well!

Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with! Thanks for stopping by!! :)

About

A Hippie Chick with a Camera and a Few Good Dogs

My love of photography began at a young age with box of old photos that I loved to look through. It amazed me how time could be made to stand still with the click of a button on a camera. When I got a little older, I received my first camera as a Christmas gift. It was a Polaroid and I adored it!! Film was expensive and eventually, my poor Polaroid was tucked away in a closet. As a young adult with small children, I purchased a 35mm film camera that I loved to shoot, but again, film was expensive and developing it even more so. This limited my ability to just play with the camera and see what I could do. Then along came digital.....

My first digital camera took worse pictures than my iPhone does now, but I was in love with that camera!! I could finally take all the photos I wanted and that's exactly what I did! Technology has come a long, long way since the late 1990's and I've upgraded that camera a few times already. Today I shoot with a Nikon d5100, by far the best camera I've ever owned....sorry little old Polaroid!

I began selling my work as stock photos in 2007. Since then, I've used my work in my jewelry creations and sold prints as art. Here in this shop, I will be offering my work as digital downloads for you to purchase and print as you like.

I have a passion for macro photography...I love getting up close and personal with my subjects! I also have a love for beautiful colors on a black background. I love the contrast and character this gives my work. I am beginning to explore more black and white photography as well and hope to bring more of this to my shop as time goes on.

So you've read this far down and are wondering, what about the "few good dogs"??? Well, I'll tell you....

My constant companions and shop helpers are Ninja, Molly and Bo. Ninja is a rescued Shih-tzu who is now running free over the rainbow bridge, but he will forever be one of my few good dogs. Molly came to me as a puppy at 8 weeks old. Her mom escaped her home while in heat and came home pregnant with some lab mix pups! Bo came to me last year as an abandoned dog. They are my life and I can't imagine a day without them! I have yet to train any of them to be still long enough for any real photography work, but if you scroll up on this page, you'll find photos of them helping me with jewelry design in my studio!! (Update: Bo will hold still some!! Expect to see some wonderful black lab art in my photos!! Can you tell I'm excited??)

I've recently added an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to my toolbox. In years past, I dabbled in traditional pencil sketching. I'm looking forward to seeing all I can do with this new toy!

So there you have it....a hippie chick with a camera and a few good dogs. Welcome to my shop and my life! I hope you'll come along for the adventure that it is!! :)

    Owner

    I love photography and mixed media art. I love finding ways to combine the two by creating unique mixed media backgrounds to photograph and sell.

  • Molly

    Professional Ball Fetcher

    Molly is a constant in my studio and I don't think I would enjoy my work nearly as much without her there to help me! And by "help me", I mean I throw her ball while I try to work!

  • Bo

    My Shadow, Bodyguard

    Bo is my 100 pound shadow! Where I go, he goes. He is also my bodyguard and I sometimes step on him in the studio. Oops. Sorry Bo!

  • Ninja

    Full Time Lapdog

    Ninja is my sometimes grumpy, always lovable full time lapdog. He has a little bed under my table and his job is to sleep while I work. He's very good at his job! *Ninja is now running free over the rainbow bridge, but he will forever be in my heart.
