Art, illustration, design, and home goods inspired by my life on a high-desert homestead. My hope is that my art will bring joy to people who see it and even more joy to people who make it their own. Thanks for being here. Thanks for supporting my art. Thanks for allowing me to do what I believe brings joy into this world! My artwork, designs and illustrations are inspired by everyday life on my Arizona homestead, my travels, and my childhood. I love experimenting with light, color, composition, and textures to create work that captures a peaceful and nostalgic feeling. Live the Joy!

I love sharing the amazing work of other artists, plus more good stuff related to art, design, nature, homesteading and health.
