Art is truly a driving force in my life. Before my studio opened, I enjoyed illustrating children's books, drawing homes for real estate companies and architects, and completing commission artwork. I have illustrated ten children's books and continue to look for creative opportunities in the community to find my inner artist. In 2015, I was honored to be the Tulip Time "Art in Bloom" poster winner in Holland, Michigan and have been in the top 20 for several years as a finalist. I currently have my art studio and storefront in downtown Holland, Michigan.
All the artwork in my shop is created by me personally. I offer reproduction prints and note cards that are colorful, witty, and unique working primarily with pen and ink and gouache paint. I also create commissioned work for homes and businesses including architectural artwork, animal portraiture, and scenic portraits. My storefront includes a large array of greeting cards, coffee mugs, matted and framed prints, pillows, and many other unique gifts. Most popular among my greeting cards are my puns although we have over 250 greeting cards to choose from.
If you are in the West Michigan area, please stop by my colorful gallery and gift shop at 29 West 8th Street, Suite 100 (Claremont Court) in Holland, Michigan. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00am-6:00pm and closed most holidays and Sundays.
