Holding true to what’s true for me and doing my best not to let other people’s opinions and experiences sway it. The ultimate practice. Listen listen listen to my gut! Don’t take on what’s not mine! Be direct, compassionate, and ask for what I need! Do what feels right for me and let that be ok! I’ll never be able to get inside anyone else’s head to know what’s really going in there; I can only live inside my own. And I want to feel good and supported and strong and safe and loved in there! (I do feel that way. But I’m working on feeling MORE that way.) ps - this was fun to paint. I always come back to painting birds sooner or later. I wonder how many I’ve painted over the years? (Here's the full message I wrote when I painted it.)
My life changed dramatically in August 2018 when my husband suddenly died and then again in January 2019 when my baby girl was born. Creating nearly daily art has been one of the main ways I've tuned in to my feelings and to myself as I've moved forward. Sharing the art that I've been making and the messages I've been giving to myself has been a powerfully healing part of my journey, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to share my images and thoughts with you.
All products are packaged with care and shipped from my Portland, OR studio (with the exception of iPhone cases, which will be shipped directly to you from the manufacturer, separately from any other items you've ordered).
Prints are signed and dated, packaged in a plastic sleeve with cardboard backing, shipped in a bend-proof mailer.
Original paintings are wrapped in bubble wrap and packaged carefully to prevent damage.
Your order will be shipped via USPS.
Every piece of art and every product that I make begins with an intention to connect with my intuition and with myself. Who am I today, and what do I need? Making art smooths out life’s rough edges and helps me make sense of all the complex feelings and experiences that are part of being human. Creating helps me find joy, acceptance, and gratitude. It is a balm for my soul, and I hope the things I make will feel like a balm for yours, too.
Whether it is a piece of wall art for your home that I created using paint, markers, and colored pencils, a deck of animal totem oracle cards, a bright, patterned iPhone case, or a hand-drawn greeting card — every single product that I sell is made with heart. Most products are made right here in my studio in Portland, OR.
My work is created both traditionally and digitally; my favorite materials and tools include acrylic paint, gouache, colored pencils, paint markers, wood panels, fabric, my computer, and my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I also sometimes use fun things like glitter, resin, and sequins!
