The Gold & Graphite Etsy Shop is LIVE!

Friends, I’m so excited to announce my Etsy Shop, Gold & Graphite Goods, is live! I’ve said every year I’d love to have a shop and yet every year I just said there wasn’t enough time. I learned this year that I’ll never find spare time, I had to make time. I gave up many things (mostly sleep) to borrow time to make this happen. Before I say anything else, I just want to say thank you. Thank you so much for your encouragement and support. Thank you to those of you who have ordered custom commissioned prints for the past few years. Thank you for putting up with me saying “hopefully” and “eventually” year after year. Thank you to my incredible husband for telling me every day that I can do this and helping to make it happen. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. Truly overwhelmed.

Friday Feels + an Announcement

Hi friends! That little lady up there has been getting a lot of air-time on my Instagram stories so if you love watching people paint like me, I saved some snippets and behind-the scenes into my process on my ‘artwork’ highlights! I’ve painted more this week than I have in a very long time and it almost feels freeing in a way to make the decision to do something I’m so naturally drawn to do.
