How it all began...

A friend taught me to paint when I was 15, and even though she is very talented, she didn't teach me all of the perfect techniques. Instead, she told me to enjoy painting. That's what I've been doing ever since.

I mostly paint things that I love--nature or simple things or pretty much anything at all. Seriously, there's a giant drawing of a hip bone up on our guest bedroom wall. And whether you enjoy a well-drawn skeleton study or a cheerful hillside (more typical in my art), I hope that my art brings joy to you. That's the real goal. I'd love to have a teeny tiny bit of my world speak into your world.

    I'm a librarian turned painter, although I was technically painting before I was librarying. I love things that seem insignificant, and I tend to paint on a relatively small scale as a result. It makes me happy.

Because of the nature of watercolor, it is difficult to capture exact colors in photographs. Other differences in color might exist because of computer monitors, but I hope that you are pleased with your art despite those minor differences. I make every attempt to clearly represent the items for sale.

If by some chance you do receive an item with a problem, please send a photo of the problem. You will likely receive a replacement item, although you might be asked to return the original item at your own cost.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, I am willling to refund your money minus shipping costs up to two weeks after you received the order. You will be responsible for returning items in their original condition as well as return shipping costs. Your money will be refunded as soon as the item is received undamaged and complete.
Please contact me if you're having a problem with PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout. I'll do everything I can to help you with the payment process.

Because I live in Virginia, all Virginia residents will be required to pay 6% state and local tax.
I typically mail things by the United States Postal Service, but if you include a different preference in your order message, we could make different arrangements. An additional fee will be charged for a more expensive form of shipment.

I mail items the next business day whenever possible, although official shipping timeframes are specified for each item. Custom items may take considerably longer to ship, as they must first be created.
