Before the birth of my first son in 2008 I started painting nursery art and home decor and selling it locally. Not long after that I discovered Etsy and opened up my own shop, Paint Me a Picture. However, at the beginning of this year I decided to take a break from the blogging and handmade world to refocus on myself and my family. During my "break" I picked up a sketchbook and an ink pen and started drawing. The more I drew, the more ideas I developed. I decided I wanted to continue creating and selling and made a HUGE change in the name of my blog and shop of three years from Paint Me a Picture, to Pen and Paint. Now I am back gathering inspiration from the blogging and handmade community, creating happy prints. Every now and then I still love picking up my paintbrush and creating a fun piece of art.
I am an artist. It is ingrained in me to create. If I don't draw or create something almost every day I start to feel like something is missing. Having the opportunity to sell what I create is just an added bonus. I love knowing I get to share my work with others and bring joy to them through it.
