I thought about making an Etsy shop for a few months during 2013, but I didn't think it would work out. The other night I found myself looking for a pair of pizza earrings, and I finally decided to go through with it. So here we are now!

This shop has evolved into a variety of craft projects. I started out painting on notecards and ended up experimenting with felt patches and shrinky dink earrings. A lot of trial and error... I started exploring printmaking and using air drying clay. I'm always thinking of new ideas and trying to figure out my "style" and medium. I've grown A LOT as an artist over the past few years and this etsy has been a testament to that. I am happiest when I am constantly making things.

In February 2017 I founded Asterisk Press, and began self-publishing zines and comics. I'm amazed at how far I've come with that, and so thankful for the zine community.

Thanks for looking!

Returns and exchange details
If anything gets damaged or lost in the mail, send me a message and I will try to send another!
I ship most bulky things (clay figurines) in a personalized handmade paper box with filling, inside of a bubble mailer.
The bubble mailer packages will have a shipping label with tracking numbers, international orders are responsible for paying the price of customs.
Most paper goods (zines and prints) will be in a manila envelope or bubble mailer with a shipping label that includes tracking.
Everything is sent with USPS First Class. I can send internationally but shipping might be expensive. Etsy tends to overestimate shipping costs so I'll do my best to refund you if shipping is cheaper.
