I forgot to post this one so...better late than never. Hurricane Nicole has come and gone. I was a little nervous but decided to head out to the beach anyway. I had a few friends who went out the day prior and didn't see much debris in the water. Fortunately, Cocoa Beach wasn't hit as … Continue reading What if I Don’t Want to Surf Today?
New Collection Coming Soon
I'm finally making progress on my newest collection. It's going to very limited for now. If I see significant interest I may add to it at another time. I'm super excited about this one. I'm using wood panels as the surface. This gives me a nice smooth workspace. I put a coat of gesso to … Continue reading New Collection Coming Soon

I love … Continue reading Ready, Set, Go!

Rebranding Is A Hard Decision
I have spent some time looking at shop name options this week. I'm so torn. As an artist, I want to use my name for my shop. As an Etsy Shop owner, I want people to be able to find me and be able to spell my shop name. I may be able to rebrand … Continue reading Rebranding Is A Hard Decision
