I create artwork and gifts for caring, creative people who wish to express their love of nature, faith and family with art.
ABOUT: I truly am blessed! I get to spend my days doing what I love while supplying my customers with unique, custom artwork and gifts for themselves and the people they love:) My goal is to create interesting and nostalgic items that have a rustic chic quality along with a touch of humor and heart. Quality and originality are top priorities for me! Nothing leaves my studio unless I would be proud to hang it on my wall or give it as a gift myself!!
MY PROCESS: I use mostly acrylic paints and plasters on wooden panels to start my art projects. I utilize different plasters, nail heads, found objects, stencils and transfers to give my artwork depth, interest, and texture. My hand painted frames, decorative hooks, ornaments, and signs are created in the same way.
MY INSPIRATION: My love of art, antiques, gifts and family motivates me to create my products. I am inspired every day by the things in life that make me stop and smile. It might be a bird singing outside the window, the laughter of a child, or the way the sunlight streams through the window. I try to capture a feeling of nostalgia and happiness in all of my work.
MY MISSION: I want my artwork to remind my customers of the simple and imperfectly beautiful elements in the world. Special occasions are a great opportunity to express yourself in unique and loving ways. I am grateful every day to have the opportunity to make and share artwork that celebrates life, family, nature, and spirituality.
I strive to continually add new and exciting items to my shop and look forward to the opportunities and challenges that my customers provide me with every day. Thanks for visiting my shop!!! xo
Owner, Maker, Designer, Artist
I'm a Chicago based artist born in rural Illinois surrounded by big skies, endless cornfields and rustic old barns. The influence of my formative years, combined with my later urban surroundings and love of nostalgia is reflected in my artwork.

Frequently asked questions
Where do I add my personalization information?
When placing an order for a personalized item, please add your personalization in the "note to seller" box that pops up after you "Add to cart". If you select "buy it now" instead of "add to cart" you will have to email me with the information.
Can I get this in a different color?
Absolutely! Most of my handmade items can be made to order in the color of your choice. If you have a custom color request, just email me and I will create a custom listing for you to purchase at your convenience.
Can I have my item gift wrapped?
All of my items come wrapped in cellophane tied with a jute string and some even have a little gift tag. I also offer really cute burlap bags for my smaller plaques as an upgrade. If you choose this option and want it wrapped and ready to go, with no pricing info included in the package, just let me know:)
Custom and personalized orders
I'm always happy to customize your order for you if I can. If you would like a color, size or phrase that you don't see listed, please convo me with your requests and I will get back to you right away with pricing and ordering instructions.
Size information is available within the listing of every item I sell. If you are unclear about available sizes or are interested in a size not mentioned, please convo me.
All of my signs, frames, baptism plaques and prints on wood panel are covered with a protective coating of either wax (wood signs) or varnish (prints mounted on wood panel) to prevent them from UV damage, scuffs, or scratches. They can easily be cleaned or dusted with the wipe of a cloth.
Shipping and packaging
All items will come carefully packaged in sturdy new cardboard boxes to protect them from damage during shipping. I offer several shipping options, which will be listed as options at checkout. Most items ship within 5 business days, and all ship within 10. If you need an item sooner, please convo me and let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your needs if possible.
Please contact me regarding wholesale availability.
