Little Shop of Humor


Thanks so much for stopping by! The fact that you're here tells me that we have something in common — an attraction for specialized gifts with a sassy twist of fun.

For those who are looking for that one of a kind item that hits the nail on the head when looking for a special fit for someone, you’re in the right place. Coming up with illustrations for the masses has never been my interest. You want something a little different — that touches your heart or funny bone - that shows your thoughtfulness in choosing a gift. That’s what my work is all about!

Much of what you see originates from artwork that I've created for special people in my life. Their heartfelt, typically laugh-out-loud reactions encouraged me to share my work with you.

I’m pretty much a self taught artist, but several years ago I was honored to take an in-home animation class taught by one of the great Warner’s Bros animators, Ben Washam. Through his weekly classes I learned about bringing images to life with a twist of humor. It was the best training I could have had.

As I begin a project I always ask myself what some typical traits of the characters involved might be... “What thought goes through a teacher's mind right before the morning bell?", or “What is it that golfers need to work on the most while trying to make that difficult shot?" “What is it that a particular breed of dog is known for?” With the Comedic Cats Collection it was “How can I illustrate a specific trait of a person using the scenario of a cat?” And so it goes for everything I draw.

When you’re looking for a gift that tickles your heart — for yourself or for someone else, there’s no question that joy comes from feeling special, which is how you or your loved one will feel the moment they open the package!

Reasonably priced and made with only the best quality materials.
