It all started when...
Looking for a creative outlet in college, I began painting canvas quotes that my roommates graciously allowed me to hang in our sorority house. They knew that I was onto something. In 2011, an incredible group of student leaders dared me to create an online shop to sell art while raising funds for a cause that I care about*.
Painting and lettering became an insatiable hobby, and I was thrilled to bring to life the requests of friends, family, and eventually strangers connected through the internet.
The party really started in 2016 when I started to take creative risks, aligned products with my personal values, and expanded offerings to include drinkware, art prints, and gifts.
