I was recently asked to describe myself and came up with the following: “I am a black sheep that tends to wander away from the herd.” I’ve always been different and feel that how I see the world isn’t quite the same as everyone else. I enjoy my time alone and often wandering away from the path most travelled in search of exploring a new way around.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I am happy to report the Bodega Boutique popup show was a great success and the opening night meet and greet was so much fun.

There will be a large selection of my pet illustrations including postcards, blank note cards, art prints and brand new hand bound blank journals. Pop-up Show Dates and Times My work will be available from Friday, April 15 to Sunday, April 17, 2016 during regular store hours: Fri

It has everything to do with mail, communicating and connecting with one another with a dash of my illustrated pet personalities. My original goal was to send out 30 pieces of mail featuring my illustrations. I am overwhelmed that my goal of 30 signups quickly became an actual 61 recipients from all over the world. It is a huge confidence boost and I can’t wait for you all to get your postcards and note cards in the mail. The first few envelopes

What is it? My snail mail challenge stems from a love of paper, stationary and everything related to corresponding through the mail. I am inspired by the Write_On campaign started by Ohh Deer and Egg Press. “Write_On is a campaign to promote joy, creativity, expression and connection through hand-written correspondence.” – quoted from their website In our technical world we Tweet, like, share and post instead of putting pen to paper. April is National Card and Letter Writing month and I plan to celebrate and contribute to the Write_On initiative by sending one piece of mail every day during the month of April 2016. I’ll be tweeting, Instagramming, and blogging my
