About

Designed by an Artist.....Painted by YOU!

I was out with my tribe of girlfriends one night, one of whom was moving her business into a new space. Her business name happens to have a birch tree in the title, which prompted a brainchild of an idea that I shared with the group. "Hey!" I said, "Why don't we all paint a birch tree painting that we can give to K to adorn her office?" Now my friends love me, but they scoffed (a little) when I said this. "Oh sure," they might have snickered, "we could do that maybe only if YOU drew it for us." That caused me to stop and think for a minute. As a matter of fact, I could do exactly that. Cheers erupted and when we reconvened six weeks later, we each produced 7 very beautiful and unique paintings, all based on the same simple line drawing. We each had our own personal interpretation on the subject matter and from this experience, NicheBoardz were born.

I've always been an artist. Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of growing up to live an Artist's Life. I earned a BFA from The University of Michigan and a Teaching Certification in K-12 Art Education. While I'm happiest with a paintbrush in my hand, I make art in all forms and always feel the urge to create. I love to share my creative enthusiasm with others which is why this product is such a natural fit for me. I believe everyone is a Creator in their own way and that if we did more of what we loved, this world would be a much happier place.

When I get a big burst of inspiration, I call them "downloads". I received a gigantic one lately as my family travelled to the Grand Canyon. I was literally called to hit the road, which is an invitation I happily accepted. Driving to and the time spent there, was all about observation. I enjoyed the kitzchy nostalgic feel along Route 66 with all its retro color and flavor. I loved the landscape of the southwest region in general and enjoyed observing the change in terrain from the Midwest to the Southwest. By the time we were on our way home, I was in full production, capturing what I saw, which is why the labels, marketing materials and oftentimes the boards themselves, have a playful and retro feel to them.

I'm grateful for a loving family that stands behind me in my pursuit. My husband taught himself to print my designs onto the boards and my kids enjoy selling with me at local art fairs. Watch for expanded designs as I hope to add more on a regular basis. Thank you for stopping by!

    The truth is: Making Art is good for you, reducing stress hormones in the brain while using problem-solving skills. Unlike math, an art piece can be solved several ways, making art the blend of problem-solving ingenuity and inspired expression.
