About

There is magic everywhere.

I grew up telling stories with my words; eventually I learned to tell them silently, with scribbles, color, and feeling.

I'd always been a creative soul, writing and illustrating my own short stories and novels from a young age, using my imagination as fuel to create my own happiness.

The fear of being unable to support myself in a battered economy eventually led me to trade in my colored pencils for degrees in English and Journalism. After graduation, I immediately secured a job with a publishing company, where I edited papers and put my knowledge of the Oxford Style Manual to good use.

It was only a few months before I knew I'd slowly go insane if I didn't make a drastic change. With a slew of pent-up creative energy and strong desire for self-sustenance, I opened up my Etsy shop and began, once again, to let my imagination guide me.

Managing a full-time job and my freelance illustration career has been a difficult but invigorating journey. I've finally discovered a sense of community, purpose, and creative fulfillment. I've learned to embrace hard work, new challenges, and managed to tackle a lot of small (and large!) fears. Best of all, I've learned a lesson that it takes many people years to learn: that anything is possible, and that there is magic everywhere.

My dream is to manage my shop full-time, but as I make my way towards that dream, I'm making sure I enjoy this very special journey.

All of my work is inspired and infused with little pieces of me -- feelings, wishes, and stories that would otherwise go untold. I hope you're able to find a smile and small parts of yourself in each piece I make, too.
