About

Put some art on it

I have always wanted to be an artist of some sort. I loved art before I was two years old. I went to an expensive art school (which in general, I have a tendency not to recommend), and then I graduated and did nothing professionally for about 10 years. I never stopped creating and loving art, but when you are in debt from your fancy school, and you have grown up bills, it is hard to make the living that you need to as an artist or to get into fancy schmancy art galleries.

Then, I got married to my best friend (this is the good part). One day, my husband said, "You need to make stuff people can use. Like coasters. I'd buy coasters". So I did. I made a set of coasters. They sucked. I made another set. They weren't so bad. I kept making them. I got better. I opened an Etsy shop. They started to sell. I got bored with making only coasters. It was at this point that I decided I would make art on anything that I could, and make it affordable and (mostly) utilitarian. I decided it would be personal and I would make things that I loved, or had inspired me in some way.

That was it. I was hooked. I started doing art full time, and even fraternizing with the local galleries in Fredericksburg (only the cool ones though). I love, love, love, nature and so it is an inherent part of everything I make. I can't help myself. I also love wine (hence the coasters and wine charms). And coffee. I will continue to make things that I love, and hope that people love them as much as I do! I consider myself blessed, not lucky, and thank Jesus for every good thing that comes my way.
