Occupation Artist.Designer. Animal Advocate.
Location St. Paul, MN, United States
Introduction I'm a freelance artist and designer who just moved back to the city (St. Paul) after five years in the deep 'burbs. Happy to be back! I'm married to the handsome and wonderful Brad for almost five years now and have a small Etsy shop. I have an obsession with flea markets, thrift stores and anything that is old and tells a story. I love art, design, travel and helping out various charities that are close to my heart. I have a habit of rearranging our house and furniture. My husband now says "Everyday at home is a scavenger hunt!" because items move around a lot!
Interests Interior design, arts, travel, vegetarian fare, animal activist, family, walks, hiking, charity, making my home beautiful and cozy, enjoying the small things, finding meaning in the day-to-day and CAKE. Trying to spread light on this sometimes dark planet.
