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!
