I just got my painting today. It was waaayyyy beyond my expectations. Kathleen was very mindful of our vision and captured our boys (dogs) perfectly and hysterically. We made them burner pirates and they look awesome! We will use Kathleen again and will recommend her to all who will listen.

I LOVE my new necklace. Haven't taken it off since it arrived :) The package was promptly delivered and communication was great!
Handmade Art Treasures to Brighten Your Day
I've been drawing, painting and working with paper since childhood, but didn't start focusing on a creative life until my daughter asked me a question. I had made her a pendant with a watercolor portrait of her little Havanese dog, Henry. She loved it! And she said, "Why don't you open an Etsy shop and sell these?" So I did! And now I've quit my day job to do what I love full time.
My goal is to create affordable, one-of-a-kind works of art for you to enjoy, whether they're pen and ink, watercolor, monoprint, linoprint, collage, origami, or other decorative arts. I also offer handmade items using your photos or mine, as well as vintage images.
I work on whatever level surface is available in our little bungalow in the historic district of a small gold rush town in northern California. Inspiration is all around me, including the American River Parkway where I take daily walks, and the old main street with buildings dating to 1865. When I'm not creating, I enjoy time with my husband, kids, and grandkids; traveling; writing; reading; and learning.
My specialty is custom work, whether it's creating a portrait of your pet, painting a unique gift for a friend (maybe incorporating a hobby such as knitting, snorkeling, travel?), or any other item or subject that tickles your fancy. Please contact me with any questions - I would love to translate your ideas into lasting keepsakes!
