About

Pens + Paper = Happy

Pens + Paper = Happy. Simple formula. So true for me.
Happy me ---> happy art ---> happy customers!

I hand-draw, hand-color, and hand-letter all of my designs with colored pencils, markers, and ink, and sometimes a little collage. I adore hand lettering especially. The art of handwritten script has always been a rapt love affair for me. When I was little, I remember being fascinated by the swirls and swoops of cursive, and I was so impatient to learn "grown up" writing. I've put in my time studying and practicing formal calligraphy over the years, struggling to perfect a specific "hand" or alphabet. But mostly these days I invent my own "hand" and let the pen wander, trusting that what unfolds will have movement & joy and delight the eye.

My other life-long love affair is with greeting cards. Since I grew up shuffled about the country in the nomadic lifestyle of a military family (and this meant saying a lot of good byes), I began writing letters and making cards to stay in touch. I was one of the most dedicated and loyal pen pals on the planet (still am, folks!) I also added fun cartoons to my letters and decorated the envelopes. All of this, I now realize, set the stage for the cards I make today.

Eventually I dreamed of being able to connect to the whole world with my cards. And now I am doing just that. It is seriously fun and it makes me beyond happy, but you know what makes me happiest? Imagining people sending and receiving my cards, feeling loved, connected, special, and smiling, because in the end, that's what it's all about. I am so honored!

Welcome, everyone!

    I work from my home studio, with a view of fishing boats and the occasional whale out on beautiful Monterey Bay. Sometimes I like a dollop of freshly whipped cream on my dark roast coffee...(alot of the time, actually!)
