Who Are We?
It all started with a traumatic life event, which led to some art classes and three years later, a hand drawn Christmas card. In 2006, the Ornament Card, began my annual tradition of hand drawing Christmas cards to send to my family and friends.
I spent many years with a part-time art business while working full-time. After 17 years of working for a non-profit trade association, I sold my house, gave notice and moved from Chicago to New Jersey. All for love. It was the perfect opportunity to go full-time with my art business.
You'll notice a strong nature and Ireland theme running through my art. My Grandparents immigrated from Ireland and moved back the year I was born. I spent many summer vacations there and it was kind of my second home.
