Fine art prints: A saga

A couple of years ago, my art printer died. I decided not to replace it, opting instead to take a break from making art prints altogether. So, why take a break?  As any artist can attest to, hand-done prints can be nerve-wracking to consistently produce. We all want...

Happy Birthday (card)!

I just received samples of a new birthday card I designed for Sellers Publishing. The theme is mason jar with fireflies, and magic sparkles are included. It’s got gold foil, too! Take a look. This card is available wherever RSVP Cards are sold. If you...

Hand-painted board book

I made a hand-painted book for my niece Priya for Christmas! I might make a video about how & why I landed on the materials I used, where you can get the blank board book to use as the base, stuff like that. If you’d be interested in a video like this, just...

When you’re framing original art on a budget, it can be easy to selectively ignore the obvious: Ready-made frames typically DO NOT come with UV-protection glass. We want it to be easy. We just want to go to TJ Maxx, find a frame / mat combo we like & not have to...

On working small

I have always loved working small. Full disclosure: I’ve worked BIG, too! Big is nice. It’s full. It’s loud, regardless of subject matter. It’s physically imposing. You simply CAN’T overlook it. But working small can be JUST as powerful… just in a quiet, more...

Amazing Eadie

It’s funny how sometimes, the traits that frustrate you in those you love can be the same traits that you find the most endearing, and respect and revere the most, when they are gone. Eadie was stubborn in small ways that sometimes made me sigh and roll my eyes. But...
