Making Art in 2022

2022 art covid design shopping

Thank you for checking out my brand-new website. I hope to make this a one-stop shop for all my newest designs, where you can purchase both the products I create in my in-home studio -- magnets, buttons, posters & prints -- as well as the print-on-demand items I have to outsource, such as t-shirts, pillows, tote bags, mugs and more. 

2022 has been rough, not gonna lie. It's taken me months to get this website up and running, and there isn't a whole lot of new content at the moment. Unfortunately, despite receiving the vaccine in spring of 2021, my husband and I contracted Covid-19 around Thanksgiving, 2021. We were very sick for several weeks, and even after I was technically recovered, I began showing symptoms of Long Covid. I found myself in the ER on New Year's Eve, 2021, with an elevated heart rate and other issues. Long Covid is still a mystery to health care providers and to patients, with a wide variety of symptoms and difficulties. The level of exhaustion I experience on a daily basis and consistently since December 2021 is frankly ridiculous and rather debilitating, It's made it very difficult to work on new projects (such as this website!) and create new content for you all. I'm receiving care at a physical medicine and rehab clinic, sleeping a LOT, and trying not to be too hard on myself that doing my best is a little different than it looked last year. 

I don't know how, when, or if these post-covid symptoms and difficulties might resolve, but I do know that no matter what happens I am driven to create, to do my best, to find the rainbows in the clouds, and to find ways to make my customers smile, laugh, and think.
