About

Doing What I Love

One of the first pieces of art I put into my shop is titled "Begin" and it has a quote which reads " Believe in the power of your dreams. Dare to begin your journey." This pretty much sums up what prompted me to open my shop.
I've always been an artist, I just didn't pursue it full time until a few years ago. I had one of those lightbulb moments where I knew life was short and if I didn't start pursuing my dream now, when was I going to?
The inspiration for the art in my shop came from my husband who was writing a book of poetry for our daughters when they were very young. He wanted me to illustrate the book, and that was the catalyst that started an entire genre of whimsical,mixed media children's art for me.
I've created all kinds of art. I love doing abstracts and landscapes,but when I discovered Mixed Media Art everything fell into place, and I could create whimsical girly art for my own daughters and girls worldwide. I create with colored pencils and paints, and my backgrounds are layers of papers,glazes and paints.My work is created completely by hand, nothing digital or photoshopped. I have so much fun using so many mediums.
I'm watching my shop grow steadily as time passes, and it is such a satisfying feeling.
I do believe you can accomplish your dreams, it just takes time, patience, and never giving up.

Frequently asked questions

Can I request to change hair or eye color?

Generally, yes you can. Changing eye color is fairly simple and I do not charge an extra fee for that. Changing hair color is more time consuming ( I do these changes by hand ) and therefore costs an extra 10$. Message me if you have a specific hair color in mind and I can set up a custom listing for you.

Can I change the wording or text on the art or have it removed?

Usually, yes you can. It all depends on what text you want and if it will fit the space. Changing and/or removing text is done digitally and takes a bit of time. There is a 10$ fee for any text change/removal. Message me with questions/requests and I can create a custom listing for you.

Can I change hair texture from straight to curly or vice versa?

Sorry, but in most cases the answer is no. Once the hair is created, it's basic shape needs to stay the same. I can change the color of the hair easier then I can change the shape/texture of the hair.

Can I add names to the art?

Yes, you can have name (s) added to the art to make it more personal, as long as they fit the area. Names need to be 8 characters or less generally speaking. I charge a 10$ fee to add names. Message me with requests for names and I can create a custom listing for you.

Can I change the background/ overall color of the art?

No. Changing the color of the background is essentially creating a whole new piece of art. Remember, my work is done by hand except for some of the text/writing in some cases. If you want big changes, like a new background or different color scheme then you are requesting a brand new custom piece of art, not a print or reproduction.

Can I request a custom piece of art?

Message me with your ideas,requests and I can work with you to create something you will treasure and enjoy. Keep in mind that I do not accept custom orders at busy times of the year, typically Summer and Holiday season.
A custom order will run around $ 275.00, but it will be an original, signed piece of art and not a print or reproduction.
