A bit of what I do


I'm thrilled to help with your special day in any way I can. Save the Date cards, Invitations, Custom Envelopes, Table Decorations, Guest Signs. You name it!


I've done entire walls in chalk for coffee houses and gyms, welcome signs for parties and events, placeholders for a family dinner, and even a chalk art surfboard!

Logos & Business Cards

I can work with you in designing a logo for your business or putting a creative facelift on an existing logo. Hand lettered business cards, logos & letterhead can help you stand out from the crowd!


From island scenes with palm trees to a cheerful or soothing splash of color, I love the creative options afforded by watercolors. See the Gallery for some examples.

Cards & Envelopes

Custom hand-made Christmas cards? Birthday cards? Announcements? You bet! First impressions are everything, so why not have each recipient's name and address hand lettered on the envelopes?

Out of the Box

Do you have a dream or an idea for a project? Let's talk it over and see what we can come up! I love working with my clients to create resplendent smiles!

Frequently Asked Questions

...and answers

Placing an order is very easy! For complete instructions, simply scroll down to our How To Order section.

That’s a great question! Each piece is custom made by hand with the greatest of care. Due to every piece being slightly different, the prices all vary as well!

Cost is based on:

  • The size of design: Smaller pieces are typically more affordable than larger pieces.
  • Intricacy of design: A very simple design tends to be more affordable than an incredibly detailed design.
  • Cost of materials: For example, paper is often more affordable than glass or wood.
  • The Completion Time Frame: If you need a piece completed immediately, there may be a “Rush Order Charge.”
If you are curious how much your piece would cost, please contact me and I will be more than happy to provide you with a free quote!

Best question ever! You can pay with PayPal, Venmo, Check or Cash. Just contact me if you need more info. (Click an icon, below, to go to PayPal or Venmo.)

Yes! I will gladly ship completed pieces to you! Just give me the address where you would like it shipped, pay shipping and handling, then wait by your door until the mailman comes!

Yes! I would love to teach you hand lettering and/or watercolor! I do private lessons in Phoenix, Arizona for $75 an hour.

I am also available for girl's night events, bachelorette parties, Bible study groups, etc.! Classes will typically range in cost from $20-$70 per person depending on the number of participants, length of lesson, and types of lessons desired.

Interested? Contact me with your event and we can arrange a class time!

You bet I do! Weddings are some of my favorite events to create works of art for! Take a peek at the “Wedding Gallery” for some inspiration.

I can make chalkboard signage, glass signage, seating charts, table numbers, place cards, wedding invitations, envelope lettering, thank you cards, dinner menus, bridal shower signs, etc. Send me a message with your ideas and I can provide you with a free quote for your big day!

Yes and no. I typically create every piece of art by hand for each client, and will not offer prints of that specific piece to other clients. Every single piece of art is uniquely made and custom designed just for you. That being said, if you would perhaps like 100 Christmas cards printed for the Holidays, you can order a custom Christmas card design and then we can make prints of that design for you!

If you have further questions about prints, feel free to contact me and I will gladly expand on this!

I am a big fan of the Tombow Fudenoseke, Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Sigma Micron Pens, and POSCA pens. Depending on the piece that I am creating, I will switch it up, but those are my go-to pens when hand lettering!

Each piece is uniquely made by hand, therefore it does require a bit of time to make quality art for each of you! I typically will quote 3-4 weeks of time needed to create a piece and ship it to you, however that varies based on the piece you need and your timeline!

When we discuss your vision for the artwork, cost, etc., we will also discuss when you need the final product to be delivered. I can typically make any timeline work, however there are “rush-order” costs for pieces that need to be completed with short notice.

Maybe! I absolutely love being able to meet clients and fellow artists, get to know them better, and drink coffee! I am currently located in Phoenix, Arizona so if you are nearby and would like to discuss a potential order or chat about various art techniques, shoot me a message!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll answer all of your remaining questions!

How to Order

It's Easy!

How do I place an order?

Placing an order is very easy - Simply contact me through your favorite method! You can email me at, you can use the Contact section on this website, message me on Instagram or Facebook, call or text me at 714-333-5093, or if you are feeling ambitious, send a delivery bird to my home with your order! I am not picky on contact method - I just love hearing from you guys!

If you already know exactly what you want, great! If not, we can discuss what type of piece you are imagining and then I can give you a free price estimate before you decide on moving forward with the order or not. I love hearing from my clients, so feel free to reach out to me at any time with any questions, thoughts, or orders you have!

Simply follow the steps below and we will go from there!

  1. Contact me through your preferred method below and let me know what sort of piece you would like to receive a quote for. The more information you can provide about the piece (size, color, preferred date of completion, design concept, etc.), the more accurate your quote will be! If you aren’t exactly sure what you want, that is perfectly fine – we can brainstorm together until we create a piece that you are thrilled with!

  2. Once I receive information about the piece you would like, I will give you a free quote. You can then decide if you would like to move forward with the piece, alter the design, or hold off on ordering the piece. If you choose to move forward with the design, I will give you an estimated date of completion and get to working on your custom piece!

  3. When the piece is completed, it will be shipped to your preferred address or you will be contacted to schedule a pick-up time. You will also be given the final invoice – you can pay via PayPal, Venmo, Check, or Cash. Easy as that!
