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

I was out with my girlfriends one night, one of whom was moving her business to a new space. Her business name happens to have a birch tree in the title, which prompted an idea that I shared with the group. "Hey!" I said, "Why don't we all paint a birch tree 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... if YOU drew it for us." That caused me to stop and think for a minute and decided to do just that. We reconvened six weeks later, and produced 7 beautiful and unique paintings, all based on the same simple line drawing. That's how this business was born.

Since then:
- I've created every drawing by hand
- We set up a basement studio
- My husband taught himself to screen print
- I personally package each board by hand and take them out in the world

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. I'm happiest with a paintbrush in my hand and love to inspire others to create. I believe everyone is a Creator in their own way. If we each did more of what we loved, this world would be a much happier place.

    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.
