About Me

I’m an artist, designer and maker from Southern California. I have always drawn, since an early age, and I still love to draw all sorts of things. One of my favorite pastimes is to think of strange, funny and/or interesting characters--parts of my imagination, life and experiences--and express them on paper with pen and ink. Cartooning has always been a big part of my life; incidentally, I used to draw editorial cartoons for newspaper publication.

These days, I do graphic and web design projects for myself and various clients, including custom invitations and other event pieces; promotional and marketing graphics for online and print use; lightly customized (WordPress) websites.

In addition to the above activities, I love to read, write letters, make greeting cards, bake and cook, listen to favorite music and podcasts, practice yoga, spend time with family, play with the kitties and shop for paper, art supplies, etc. Travel is something I also enjoy, as well as reading about other countries/cities, customs and cultures. I've travelled to many places in the U.S. and abroad and I love meeting friends from all over the world. It all started with exchanging mail with pen pals when I was younger.

Favorite projects: drawing/cartooning/illustrating; writing letters; making and decorating greeting cards, postcards, tags, stationery, envelopes, gift wrap, etc.; making books/journals; carving stamps; stamping and embossing; printmaking; painting; mixed media; marbling paper; making garlands; sewing; letterpress; collage art; pressing flowers; collecting mail and stamps from around the world.

Please note: While I appreciate all items received in a swap, I prefer NOT to receive edible items (food, drink) or bath/beauty products such as lotions, gels, oils, powders or makeup. Thank you for understanding!

Comment: I enjoyed reading your notecard, Pam! Thanks for sharing about your visits to Seattle. It's funny, I moved here three years ago, and I've heard that even in five years the city has changed so much--for better or worse. But, I consider myself lucky to even be here so it's fun! I haven't been to San Diego in a while, but every summer there's billboards up here advertising the city and it always makes me a little homesick. Until next time, stay cool! OH, and YES, I absolutely love the postcard you picked for me. Ugh, it's so gorgeous. Thank you, thank you!
Response: Thanks for the great comment and kind rating (with a heart no less)! I'm so happy you enjoyed what I sent and I hope you'll make it back to San Diego sometime soon. The weather seems to be on a bit of a cooling trend, so not *quite* as hot and humid. I'll have to make a point of revisiting Seattle, too--one of these days! I'd say we're both fortunate to live in such sought after destinations! Happy swapping (:

Comment: Hi Pam! Thank you so much for the lovely note. It seems like we have quite a bit in common :) I always love podcast suggestions, and I haven't listened to Night Vale yet. I'm going to give it a shot this week. I am so excited for the notebook, too. It's going in my purse so I can jot down thoughts and ideas when I'm out and about. Thanks again!!
Response: You're most welcome! Thanks for your comment and the generous rating. I appreciate the response and am so happy you liked your surprise. Hope you get a kick out of the podcast, as well! (:
