OMG! This is just so amazing; Georgia has absolutely wizardry level skills! She's completely captured the various personalities of my cats. I'm crying looking at it, it's so perfect.

About

Whimsical illustrations in watercolors and ink.

I grew up in a small town on the coast of Rhode Island. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and swamps surrounding our house; battling trees with sticks, outrunning imaginary monsters, and coloring pictures of each adventure once I was safely home. I had been drawing for about as long as anyone could remember, and sometime in my late teens I'd begun painting as well. My dream was always to be an illustrator, but like so many folks with a dream, rent money and health insurance had paved the way to a day job. After graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art, I found myself working at a bank.

Each night after work I rushed home, made dinner for my cat Elvis and I, and settled down to paint for a few hours. Occasionally I would sell a painting, and I wrote a webcomic that posted weekly, but more often than not I would finish an illustration only to tuck it safely into a drawer. The little pile grew, waiting for the day I would get brave and pursue illustrating full time.

As it would happen, life took a 3,000 mile detour in 2010 when I agreed to move to Seattle with my husband five days after our first date. (You can find that story on my blog). On our third date we packed up my illustrations, Elvis, and my apartment to drive for six days across the country. Having lived in Rhode Island all my life, this was a huge change. I went from living in a small town with about 1600 people to a sprawling metropolis of 3 million.

I discovered bravery sort of grows from one decision to another. I took a chance and began selling prints of my illustrations here on Etsy and in independent shops across the country. I have since shipped my work to folks all over the world, from Japan, to Denmark, to Australia, to England, to Spain, and almost every state in the nation! I am still climbing my way toward publishing, (I hope to one day illustrate children’s books) but the support and encouragement I have already received through customers on Etsy is overwhelming.

Today I live in Southern California with my husband Ryan, our children Luke and Gwen, and our cats Elvis, Puck, and Lupin (who star in their own webcomic I write called "BREAKING CAT NEWS.") I do my best to balance life between cartooning and being a Mom, and love both jobs thoroughly!

Thank you for visiting my shop! Please take a moment to read my policies. If your question is not answered here, simply send me a conversation and ask away!

  • Buy with Apple Pay

Payment
I accept PayPal, credit cards, and Etsy Gift Cards for payment. Through PayPal you can easily use all major credit/debit cards or even write an "echeck" and use the funds from your own bank account!
Shipping
I mail out prints and finished paintings within 2-3 weeks of receiving your payment. (If you use an echeck, after the echeck clears). Commissions are mailed out by 8 weeks, I need two months for most commissions. I try to mail them out sooner than this, but between the kids and the comic things can get quite hectic! Many times the print orders do take the full 3 weeks and commissions take the full 8 weeks, please prepare accordingly when you order. Thank you for understanding! I wish it were faster too, but this is the realistic time frame we can work with and not get overwhelmed/get sloppy/cut corners/cry.

I ship all packages First Class through the United States postal service. Items typically arrive within an additional 3-5 business days after shipping in the United States, and 10-14 business days internationally (yes, even Canada). All paintings, prints, and paper dolls are slipped into protective cellophane sleeves and sent in sturdy recyclable mailers. Paintings will be insured through the US postal service, this is why their shipping is a bit more.

I will ship to the address mentioned in your Etsy purchase. If you need it shipped to another address, please indicate at the time of purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to love everything you buy from me! If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me within 10 business days from receiving your package, to return the item for a refund or exchange. Should your print be damaged on its trip through the mail to you, please contact me immediately and return the damaged item for a replacement. In the case of paintings, please return the damaged painting for a full refund. Paintings unfortunately cannot be replaced, only refunded, as they are one of a kind. Please note: Paintings MUST BE RETURNED, EVEN IF DAMAGED for a refund.

Due to the nature of custom portraits, they are not eligible for refunds or exchanges once they have been approved (since of course, I cannot sell a custom portrait to anyone besides the original buyer. They are 100% unique to each purchaser).
Additional policies and FAQs
I reserve the right to cancel any sale. In over 1,000 sales I have NEVER had to do that, but I reserve the right to protect myself and these works should I find reason that a sale must be canceled. If a sale is canceled, an immediate and full refund will be handed back, of course! Again... I've never had to do this.

:::::Alchemy, Custom Orders, and Commissions:::::

Question: Do you accept commissions?
Answer: Occasionally I offer special commissions for sale in the shop. Those listings will have specific guidelines and please refer to them. If there are no commission spots up for sale in the shop, then no--I'm not accepting commissions or new projects at this time, my apologies. Again, it's just time, between taking care of my kids and writing the comic there is usually no time for outside commissions. Thank you for understanding!

Question: Can you change this print to be different colors? A different animal? Etc?
Answer: No, These were all painted on paper with watercolors. I'd have to either repaint the painting or paint over it. This would be a commission, and I'm unable to take commissions right now. Also, if I'm being honest, I don't want to scribble over my paintings, that sounds like a bummer. There are many amazing artists on Etsy who take commissions and create beautiful, customized pieces and you should talk to them!


:::::Trading Work:::::

I do not trade prints, I am so sorry. Several folks on Etsy have approached me asking if I will give them prints for their products as an even trade. Giving away work is difficult for me because of the costs associated with the supplies I use to create my prints, and I feel TERRIBLE every time I have to decline a trade request. Please do not ask.

:::::Questions:::::

Just have a question? Send me a conversation! I'm always happy to discuss my work. Even if it's something as simple as "Does that robot have a name?" I would love to answer your questions, whether you decide to get one of everything or are just enjoying an afternoon of virtual window shopping!
