I believe in the power of art to change a person’s life.

What I Do

Art gives us the ability to express what cannot be said in words. In my work as an artist and art educator, I help people bring to life their passions and opinions through art every day. I use art education to build up girls’ confidence so that they can own their strengths and take on their stretches. I make art to do the same for myself. I’ve learned that taking risks and failing can be amazing, and that owning my values, strengths and idiosyncrasies is what allows me to find success in life as it is today.

About Yardia

Established in 2008, the Yardia brand blends my love for painting cozy watercolor illustrations with motivational words and a homestead flair. Choose from positive affirmation cards, garden and homestead-inspired birthday cards, screen-printed journals and handmade animal ornaments. I illustrate each product in my light-filled Seattle studio when I’m not outside feeding the chickens or harvesting vegetables.

Work with Me

I help people live a creative and intentional life through my affirmation cards and goal-setting tools available at my main website. I also help individuals commemorate special events through custom illustrations (like wedding dress paintings and tattoo designs.)
