Art is truly a driving force in my life. Before my studio opening, I enjoyed illustrating children's books, drawing houses for a real estate company and commissioned work during my first several years living in Michigan. I have illustrated 10 children's books and created lively, colorful illustrations for Holland's Downtown magazine featuring local businesses since then and continue to look for creative opportunities in the community to find my inner artist.
I currently have my art studio and storefront in downtown Holland, Michigan. Here we offer art classes to children and adults of all ages. 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 200 greeting cards to choose from.
If you are in the West Michigan area, please stop by my lively studio and storefront at 208 College Avenue in Holland, Michigan. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00am-6:00pm and closed most holidays and Sundays.
