About

Original art, fine art prints, & paper goods

I have always been in love with art. As a child, my fun summer activities included going to arts camp, taking classes in acrylic painting, and even a class in cartooning (I was terrible). After some formal training in oil painting in college, I dabbled in costume design before settling back down with fine art. My current work is primarily in acrylics and watercolor, but sometimes I also work in graphite, ink, fiber, and mixed media.

Being an artist is the best job I've ever had, and I'm thankful every day that I get to awaken to coffee, cats, and a paintbrush.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

PRINTS:
All of my prints are created with very high quality materials including pigment-based inks and archival papers. With proper care, these prints can last many decades without significant fading.

CARE:
Keep handling to a minimum. As with all art on paper, prints should not be displayed in direct sunlight or near high levels of heat or moisture; a controlled environment is best. Do not attempt to clean surface with water, damp cloth, or any type of solvent. For best protection from dust and dirt, have piece professionally framed with archival materials.

Do you offer digital prints/copies/files of your work?

No, unfortunately I do not.

In what sizes do you offer prints?

My fine art prints are printed on 8.5"x11" paper with a blank white edge around for framing.

I love this print, but can you change the (color/wording/design) on it for me?

All of my prints are made from my original paintings, so unfortunately they are not able to be altered.

Do you offer framing?

Unfortunately, I do not offer framing. My paintings are "gallery finished" meaning they have clean, finished sides and hangers and can be hung without a frame (though you are welcome to have it framed on your own - it's just a personal preference!) I recommend not buying a frame or mat until you have your piece in hand, as color and size is best determined in person. For best results, have your piece framed professionally with archival materials.

TIP: For a more cost-effective option for works on paper, you can have a custom archival mat professionally cut for your piece, with the outer dimensions of the mat fitting a standard pre-made frame. Then you have a high-quality mat which can fit in a less expensive frame.
