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’m grateful 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.
