FEEDBACK ROLL!!

"I sent this as a gift to a friend who used to reside in Oregon. She said the tote depicted a picture of her favorite beach and absolutely loved it! This was a fantastic experience from start to finish and I highly recommend this shop!"

~(from Alena Josephson in the U.S.)


"Beautiful photography! Thank you so much, my husband's going to love this bag, it's perfect! Will buy from again!"

~(from Shawna Boyd in Olympia, WA)


"From the magazine cutout on the front of the package to the photocopied inside photo, of damages sustained in action, to the belt itself, a gem of DIY punk aesthetic, I am thoroughly f**king impressed. I showed it off to a friend at work and he loved it so much he wants one for himself. It boils down to this: you f**king rock.
Keep on, keepin' on."

~(from Tao in Copenhagen, Denmark)

About

Artist from the Dirty South

~Education~
I'm a female artist from the Dirty South. As a teenager, I had a brief apprenticeship as a tattoo artist, which you will see influences my line work. I later attended a university, learning how to make prints in a darkroom, screen-print, and illustrate. I am a self-taught seamstress as well, having participated in craft fairs and public art shows. I now live and work in the Northwest.

During my education at the University of New Orleans, I was recognized with the Trish Hollis "Designer of the Year" award while taking print-making and illustration classes. I finished my BA in fine arts in 2006.

~Inspiration~
Most of my free time revolves around art – figuring out how to make it work, organizing the boring stuff, and trying to represent it all. I paint, draw, photograph, and build with wood for fun and functionality. Inspiration for me comes from little walks alone with my camera, street art, tattoo-style drawing, meticulous line work by other artists, traveling, a desire for beautiful and functional design, juxtaposed textures, skateboarding, strange individuals, and new relationships between colors.

~Customized Shopping Experience~
Anything you like in my shop I can pretty much custom fit to that space on your wall. I am open to licensing my work as well. I am available for commissions, art sales, consignment, and wholesale to retail shops.

~My Process of Manufacturing~
I use an outside printer-manufacturer to offer my design work and art as prints, framed prints, tote bags, and throw pillows, since I cannot afford production equipment on my own.

In 2013, I chose a California-based manufacturer who offers relatively fast turnaround on small orders, allowing me to grow my shop organically rather than having to order hundreds of products at a time. When they are still available, I sell my originals alongside the printed products so that buyers can have both options!

As an Etsy shop owner, I solely photograph, edit, and design each item, then proof each product before it is made to order. Then the manufacturer prints the archival prints on fabric or paper and assembles the tote bags and throw pillows, and I include washing instructions with each item.

Here's a DOCUMENTARY about my work and stance as a female artist in the modern world:

Shop policies

Last updated on April 25, 2016
Welcome to my shop! You are looking at original art and products created or designed by myself, along with some great vintage scores. If you have any questions, you may contact me directly through Etsy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Etsy gift cards and direct checkout through Etsy with a major credit card. Direct checkout is safe and gives artists the most profit for their goods, so thank you. Oregon does not charge a sales tax, lucky for you!
Shipping
I ship item(s) as soon as I can, usually within 1 - 3 business days, or as noted in the listing.

Some items, such as tote bags and throw pillows or specially sized art prints that are made to order, have a manufacturing time of about two weeks, so you will receive your item as noted in the listing.

My art prints over 11 x 14 inches will ship rolled in cardboard tubes, since that seems to be the safest way. Simply allow the print to uncurl for up to three days on a flat surface with added weight at the corners (use books!).
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns of delivered items in original condition within a week of their delivery date and offer a full refund minus shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are curious about my education, inspiration, and manufacturing processes, check out my Profile or About page for more info, and thanks for looking!

I am available for custom creative projects and product design, wholesale, and limited consignment.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship from rural Oregon, so delivery of goods may take a day longer than what is standard for urban areas.
