How it All Began
The inspiration for my whimsical series of artwork created especially for nurseries and bedrooms came about from a gift-giving problem I was facing back in 2011.
My friend Carrie just had a baby girl and I was thrilled to receive the invitation to her baby shower. However, I didn’t have a clue of what to get her as a gift. I knew I wanted to give her something different and that I wanted my gift to somehow express my feelings of friendship and love. I was NOT going to get her some generic onesie that the baby would quickly grow out of and I didn’t want to just chip in some cash to go towards a bigger gift – like a stroller. I wanted my gift to be memorable and special. It needed to be unique enough that it wouldn’t be duplicated, have that elusive wow factor and be made of high quality materials so that it would last for years to come. As a result my very first whimsical giraffe painting was born.
Today I’ve created over 40 different characters and this is my full-time job. I feel very lucky and thankful that I have the opportunity to do what I love everyday. I believe that I was given this special gift with the purpose to share it with others.
