Thanks for stopping my shop, The Nap Time Artist! As you may have guessed from the name, 
I paint (and drink coffee) while my kids are napping. Inspired by the great outdoors here in Maryland, I love to paint pieces that pop with color and vibrancy. As a SAHM, no two days are the same, and the same goes for what you see in my shop. That’s why a donut or two may show up in a piece—I love donuts! I hope you find something you have to have, and if you have a custom request, well, let’s talk!

CUSTOM ORDERS
If you have a custom painting request, reserve your spot now. Before purchasing, please reach out via Etsy messenger to discuss your project.

About

Shh, they're sleeping

I have been painting for the past 15 years. I love to surround myself with pretty things- things that contribute to my happiness and peace. With each painting completed, I have an opportunity to share in a moment of tranquility with the recipient. That is a very special thing.

I received a formal training of art in college. I then graduated and got a career in a totally different field. Having an etsy shop is an opportunity for me to make a career of my passion.

I have been inspired by many, but my biggest artistic inspiration was my grandfather, who recently passed away. My paintings are done to honor the memory of him: a modest man who taught me to take the scenic route and not worry so much about time, or the lack of it.

My items can also be found in the following shops and boutiques:

Paisley Boutique. Kenai, AK.
Luba. Vero Beach, FL.
Gather, Bloomington, IN.

    Fresh air. I love getting outdoors, breathing in some fresh air and taking in the beauty that surrounds me. The goal of my artwork is to take the viewer to some new place, a place that we can share a moment in. Oh, and I like snacks.

Production partners

  • Printing Service

    Salisbury, Md.

    I chose this printing service because of their reputation for both high quality and high volume. Although each of my images are hand-painted, I chose to partner with a local printing service in order to expedidite my customer's orders.

  • Printing Service

    Austin, TX

    I originally chose this high quality printing service because of their low minimums. Over time, my need has changed, but they have been able to handle the workload with grace. They are truly professional and I enjoy my partnership with them.

Care instructions

For original watercolor painting purchases, it is highly recommended that you mat and frame with acid free products. Also, to preserve color, do not hang in direct sunlight.

Custom and personalized orders

I love custom work! In fact, one of my favorite parts of being an artist is the human connection that art can celebrate. Whether it's a painting of your home or the view from your outdoor wedding ceremony, I am happy ro work with you and your vision for your piece.
