This online blog not only details my goal of moving out of a day job into my studio full-time, but also is a platform for sharing stuff with a dash of wit. I invite you entrepreneur hopefuls to come learn with me.
I was born in San Francisco, California to highly intelligent parents, and my sister is pretty darn smart too. It's unclear if I inherited the smart genes. I graduated with a B.A. in Art from Marymount College
Over a couple of decades, I illustrated and designed for newspapers, greeting card companies, in corporate graphic departments and publishing empires.
I reside with my antique dealer husband and two house rabbits in a the third oldest home in Connecticut–(honest!-no ghosts-bummer). My husband will be joining ETSY with his own shop called: "VintageUrban" soon.
I seek to amuse. When I come up with something more profound I'll put it in here.
Over the years my work in various forms has been published in:
NYTimes, DollWorld, Contemporary Doll Collector, Doll Castle News, SCBWI magazine, Color! magazine, Jane Green's Down to Earth Blog, Doll World, Scholastics, Westport Magazine, Mail Me Art, and more.
In 2007 I was invited to do something for the State Capitol's Holiday Tree by Governor Rell. I chose to needle felt a bear ornament rather than hang from the tree myself. I named him "Nutmeg" as Connecticut is the "Nutmeg" state.
I'm the founder of ODACT-www.odact.org or Original Doll Artisans of Connecticut-we're on Facebook.
I'm also a member of SCBWI-Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
Licensing- my designs are finding favor with licensing clients my work will soon be seen on needlepoint canvases and gourmet ice cream labels.
That's about it.
