Hello Joanne!

I recently discovered your work (thanks to Pinterest) and it makes me so happy! I enjoy finding beauty in everyday things, and it's wonderful to see you transform something as simple as a single letter into absolute art. Your passion and joy are clearly visible in your creations.

Thank you so very much,

Hi Nicole,

Your delightful letter made me smile. Thanks for taking the time to write. I feel so blessed to be able to do something I am passionate about and make people happy simultaneously. Have you tried your hand at patterning? If so, I'd love to see what some of your work...

Stay inspired,

I too found you on Pinterest, and am in awe of your talent. I want to try it but I cant think of a practical application. Can you shed some light on areas you find to use your talent? (aside from the obvious greeting card idea) Thank you SO much for sharing with us!

Hi Ruth,

I do a lot of different things with my art and writing... I make my living by licensing my art to manufacturers who put it on a variety of products-- mugs, t-shirts, art prints, jewelry, etc. I also do a lot of personal projects... I make bookmarks and monograms to give as gifts; I letter a LOT of name signs (usually at my children's request). When my daughter was a senior in high school I wrote an inspiring quote for her each day, and then drew a coordinating illustration to go with it. I used to leave them on her placemat... there are lots of things you can do once you start to draw... you are only limited by your imagination. Hope this helps...

Stay inspired,
