I love the cards with Billy Penn atop City Hall!!! Rachel was so helpful when USPS made an error with delivery. I’m so grateful that she contacted them and the cards were delivered soon after. Thank you, Rachel!
whimsical ink drawings
I find great joy in drawing the ordinary, familiar objects we may see every day - such as bikes, typewriters, instruments and ice cream trucks. I also love drawing skylines, buildings and architectural details.
I work as an architect part-time, and this etsy shop developed from a need and desire to have a more creative outlet to my profession. It also became a fun connection to the world outside of my home.
I don't have much of a process aside from picking up my Staedler pigmentline pens in the night after my kids are asleep. I am inspired to draw by many things - especially for the people who I love (my dad is a fisherman, my mom an artist, my husband a writer and collector of antiques, my kids who find wonder in most anything).
I draw my drawings on smooth bristol board paper, and then I typically scan them and render them in photoshop before printing them myself as cards or prints.
I also love watercolor and pencil, love custom requests, and hope to have more original work for sale in the future.
Thanks for your interest!

Owner, Maker, Designer
I was raised believe the things I made with my hands carried the most value for others. This has evolved into the making of hand=-drawn illustrations that seek to capture the whimsy and enthusiasm for the kindness and simplicity that life offers.

Spoonflower is an on-demand, digital printing company that prints custom fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap. I have my original illustrations printed on high-quality linen/cotton material by Spoonflower, and then I cut the fabric and sew the pillows myself.
