About

You get an ornament, and YOU get an ornament, EVERYONE gets an ornament!

I never meant to start an ornament business, it was the furthest thing from my mind in 2012. Back then I was attending Schuler School of Fine Arts, an atelier (think old master) style school in Baltimore, MD. It was there I made the first ornament. It was just for fun, I had no idea it would become what it is today.

The first ball I made was the snowman scene of the parent-snowmen making the child-snowman, or as I dubbed it, "the baby making ball". The design was one I came up with in high school.

My mom shared the ornament on Facebook and before long friends and family were requesting ornaments of their own. I imagined more designs, tackled complex (and fun) custom orders, and soon it became an annual thing.

This year, 2016, I am officially pursuing it as an official business to compliment my Fine Arts career. In the past they have appeared around York at market stands, tree lots, and museum galleries, and with the opening of OMG Studios I will also have a physical location to sell my ornaments.

I'm excited to see what the future holds.
