Camping season! Get your marshmallows and mosquito bites ready!
Inspired by all our time on the water recently. Someone said it looks like a whale swimming past the portholes of a boat under water. Isn't that a wonderful way to see it?
My first little lighthouse inspired by our inaugural sail. In spite of the bleariness of seasickness, you betcha I still got a good look at those wonderful structures.

Daydreams in a Nutshell

These things are important!
These daydreams.
So many voices tell us to straighten up, work hard, cut the fat and focus. Maybe it's true, but I stand for the little voice that tells you to take a nap, stare at the clouds and think about your favorite things.
I get to make mini escapes. The place you want to go instead of where you are. The capsule of fresh air that can be worn around your neck and taken wherever you go, or even given to someone who needs it more than you. Nostalgic landscapes, spirit animals, inside jokes: this is the good stuff that reminds you why you are you, and nobody else.

See my process and how it all works in this sweet little video: http://vimeo.com/109888849
(copy + paste in a new window and it'll pop right up)

For fifteen years I've been mucking about with paint, usually on great big walls and windows. Miniatures crept in so sneakily, an experimentation at most. My eyes were terrible; hands were shaky. Over time it came more naturally, and my eyes even got better; no kidding! Now it looks like Santa's workshop around here, with me curled over my little elf table, holding my breath for the perfect brushstroke. Everything is tiny and beautiful, and everyday I am amazed that I get to create so many miniature masterpieces to sustain myself and others.

Images above are stills from the mini movie created and directed by Sam Friedman. Portrait against blue background by Marilyn Glinka.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I make a very limited amount of custom orders as I am able. Custom pieces require more time for discussion of the design via convo, painting, and conclusion, and are therefore more expensive than ready-made items listed in my shop. Custom orders are often wait-listed, and take approximately 2 weeks to create once begun.
