“A person's a person, no matter how small.” ~ Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss)
As an artist, designer, activist and parent, balancing the need to express my inner voice, my little 'Yop!', with the very real limitations of time and money has been a life-long tight-rope walk. I've always been a dreamer with a lot of big ideas. Happily some dreams do come true.
Creative minds have collaborated in recent years to develop many new technologies for artists, designers and their customers. Print-On-Demand (POD), Custom Screen Print (CSP), 3D Print technology and others have all been co-opted by the artistic mind. Resulting in a vibrant marketplace with little or no overhead, no large print minimums, less waste, fair wages and responsible production. Add to that, worldwide visibility... truly a struggling artist's dream come true. Plus, it's a great option for the responsible shopper with an eye for the unique, expressive and convenient. This ZAZZLE REVIEW VIDEO explains some of the concerns artists face and how POD can help.
On this page I have collected and described all my shops. Using a site called Polyvore, I create interactive collages that feature one or more of my products along with the creations of other artists. I think of these images as 'shop windows' and will be keeping them fresh with 'seasonal' updates. There is a lot to see here, so take your time and come back often.

Cafe Press offers a few more unique products, such as shower curtains and duvet covers. If you find a design in one of my other shops that you would like to see at my Cafe Press shop, please let me know what designs and products you are interested in.

This dress design is based on an original collage created the night of the Day of Rage. As a live-feed member of the event from Portland Oregon ~ this collage was the best thing I could do with all my energy & my rage. Until I became an active member in Occupy Portland event that was soon to follow.
Today this image commemorates the beginning of a movement, and hopefully reminds us that it will take us all to keep it going.
The poster is found at Zazzle. The dress at Print All Over Me.
