i heart you

this heart collage needs a home. my husband thinks it's too girlie and won't let me display it. for now she sits tucked behind vases and wine glasses.

A is for helvetica

my husband and i love helvetica and type. so we painted this A. i can't decide where it looks best. and this weekend i finally got around to doing a small black ampersand. maybe ill try a letter a week...

boxes and shay-o

these collages and collage boxes will soon be up on etsy and my new site shay-o.com. im doing it little by little. here is a sneak peak.

you have to be patient to dot. but i just put on some tunes and go to work. these are small, maybe 4.5x4.5. i use gelly roll pens by sakura, the colors really stand out when mixed with sharpies or other markers.

home sweet home

before i drift off i wanted to post a few of my favorite nooks in our home. as my collection of little artifacts, handmade animals and artwork grow, our living space shrinks! more photos to come...


coming soon.


coming sooner. hopefully.


who doesn't love owls? here are some cards i made using origami papers and hand drawn owls. jeff and i try to have art day once a month. these were created for one of our favorite friends, kelli wayne geyer!


so i found these beautiful goose eggs online (from an emu farm!) and painted them as gifts. i'd like to do more but im easily distracted and on to my next project...
