About

BE PREPARED - Adventure is closer than you think!

I have always been a creator and a story teller. After completing my MFA at the University of Maine, Orono in August 2014, I decided to take the spark of an idea from my thesis and develop a full line of products based around my love of traditional fairy tales and folklore. The result is Adventure Awaits!, a shop full of magical objects, greeting cards, prints, ornaments, jewelry and other miscellaneous awesome.

My work is strongly influenced by the aesthetic of Victorian England. I love the illustrations and advertisements of that period and incorporate them into my work wherever possible. I also love that magic takes many forms, from potent love spells to fairytale fantasy to entertainers like Thurston the Great. It also seems to be a universally acknowledged force around the world. My inspiration is primarily European magical traditions, but I’ve incorporated themes and symbols from the Middle East and Asia as well.

All of my work is imagined, designed and produced right here in my studio in Bangor, Maine. I use the laser cutter at The University of Maine in Orono and do all of the cutting myself. Someday when I’m rich and famous (thanks for that, by the way) I will own my own laser cutter. But for now, I’m delighted to use one in an environment where I’m surrounded by other incredibly creative and talented people who are also pushing the boundaries for what we can do with these remarkable machines.

I sell my work here on my Etsy site, but I also sell at a wide variety of conventions and craft shows in the New England area. In the past year, I’ve been to Comic Cons, Anime Shows, Steampunk conventions, and a variety of traditional craft and art shows. You can check out my full event schedule at www.adventureawaitsme.com. And follow me on Instagram at adventureawaitsme for lots of behind-the-scenes, in progress, and inspiration photos.
