Winter Markets

Updating my website has never been my strong suit & 2016 has been such a busy year that I’m still scrambling to catch up. The good news – I’ve been busy making lots of new art, wood blocks, magnets & lockets, perfect for holiday gift giving! Of course, feel free to treat yo’ self too! 🙂

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support! I know there are tons of choices for shopping during the holidays, and I truly appreciate your efforts to support the local makers in your community. When purchasing supplies, I make every effort to buy green & eco-conscious first, then local, then Canadian, then American.

Sitting at my desk looking around me at what goes into all of my products – it’s kind of amazing how many small businesses your dollars fund. From the local print shop who makes my business cards to the family run business that constructs my wood panels to the small company who labored to create a healthier resin for artists…it’s inspiring to think about how much of what I make also supports our economy as a country.

Thank you!
