Studying art in college was a highlight of my time at College of the Atlantic, but life took me in the direction of working in womens health care after college and I mostly drew and made things on the side for fun.
In 2006 I began drawing and collaging a lot more again, mostly stemming from enjoying doing art projects with my kids. I found myself doodling a lot while listening to conference calls or in long meetings at work because it helped me concentrate. My job at the time was pretty demanding, and my kids often needed babysitters after school and daycare, which didn't feel ideal.
After some urging from my friends, I quit my job in early 2007 and opened an Etsy shop. I was so happy to be making art again and getting to spend more time with my kids. I've been selling on Etsy ever since. I also regularly exhibit original work in galleries, have an increasing number of wholesale accounts, do a few craft fairs a year, and regularly do art licensing and freelance editorial work. I've had the good fortune of being able to work with a lots of great companies and publishers over the past few years.
I love that every day is now a mix of all of these things - printing and mailing Etsy orders, working on new original pieces for upcoming shows, or illustrating something fun for a future product. And I am grateful for the flexibility in my days that allows me to spend time with my kids, too - they'll often come down into my studio and do their homework while I'm working and we'll listen to music and talk about our days. I love what I do!
