Let's bring back fun fueled by Imagination!

In our tech-saturated world, if you were to put a couple of boxes, pots and pans in front of kids they'd create buses, firetrucks, drum sets and numerous other things just from their imaginations! That is a huge part of what drives the passion here in my shop. I want to foster creativity and fun fueled by imagination! After all, imaginations are terrible things to waste!

Closely related to the power of imagination is the power of images. There is something to be said about turning on the television or browsing online and seeing positive images that look like you. Each time I begin a new illustration, I do so with the intent of fostering and encouraging cultural pride, positive self identity and belonging. I'm a mother of three, and one of my greatest joys when working on the launch of my shop, was to have my children come in, glance at one of my prints and ask “Oh! Is that me!?”. Representation is so important - at any age - and I’m honored to share a piece of my heart with my family, friends and the community at large. Please stay a while and enjoy looking around my shop!
