About

Welcome to The Ivy Lane!

My business was born slowly and without a perfect plan in mind, other than that I knew there was a plan for me and it was slowly evolving (and still is...)

I've always enjoyed art. I went to Michigan State and got my degree in Advertising in 1990. I worked in Chicago for 5 years at an ad agency, but not on the creative side of advertising at all. Not so fulfilling...

I married my college sweetheart & we eventually moved back to the great state of Michigan. I was relieved to quit my marketing job when our first baby, Maddie, was born in 1998. I just didn't feel at home in the world of offices and cubicles.

I began doing murals in the metro Detroit area. My business grew slowly and steadily and so did our family - Molly & Jack were born in the following years. I kept busy (um, understatement) with my kids but managed to continue doing murals and also canvas paintings for kids' rooms.

My business has evolved from mostly murals to mostly paintings, sold online through ebay for awhile and now through etsy.

I feel blessed to be doing what I love every day. Best job ever. Thanks for supporting my dream!

Welcome to the ivy lane!

I work out of my home in Plymouth, Michigan. Painting children's art is my favorite thing to do, and it's infinitely more fun than laundry, cleaning, or paying bills. :) I have 3 children, ages 11, 14 and 17. They are wonderful, challenging, and they are a big reason I do this. This part-time business of mine is the ideal setup for a stay at home mom. I used to work in advertising in Chicago, and while it was fun and interesting, it just didn't seem to be my fit.

What I do now is my "fit," and I have no desire to go back to the world of cubicles!

Thank you for supporting my endeavors, and for supporting a small business in the great state of Michigan!!
