This day I only managed product shots so I selected one to share that I think manages to still inspire. Back in May, I sent out flowers and inspiring quotations via email to everyone on my mailing list. They are the same image/word pairings on my line of recycled brown kraft note cards. Each card features a colorful fine art floral print on the front matched with beautiful words on the back.
Join my mailing list to stay in touch and receive future flower deliveries, news, and inspiration. Or, buy a set of cards in my Etsy shop.

Love is in the air and in the studio. One of the things I’ve been working on this week is designing a few new Valentine’s Day cards. In addition to my fine art practice, I own a business called Avant Garden Studio. I design & make artful goods like cards, journals, and calendars that feature my photography and, often, some bit of text as well.
I’ll be building an online shop for Avant Garden Studio later this year. For now, these cards are available on my Etsy shop with FREE shipping to U.S. addresses. 8 days left till Valentine’s Day…xoxo

I never made it out of the studio yesterday with my camera but I did take plenty of product shots. Coming soon to my Etsy shop: these recycled pocket journals. This is a rare peek inside & shows off the cool dot-grid paper I’ve come to love. I design the covers. I’ll show you sometime…
These towers of wood blocks are threatening to take over the studio. Lovingly handcrafted by MY DAD using reclaimed wood, the blocks will feature flush-mounted photos sealed with a satin varnish. They’re something new I’m rolling out at this weekend’s Craftstravaganza. Coming soon to my Etsy shop, too…
