The beginning… ah yes everything must start somewhere, & I am beginning this journey today. I am writing this to anyone who is reading this now and I am writing it with all that I am. I want you to know this: I create because I love & I love because I create. I am in love with the world that I live in, everything you see on this website is sincere and fully inspired by my own life. It is personal and my entire heart is put into every piece I create. What inspires me the most is doubtlessly my family, my family history, my country, nature, and anything else that attaches itself to my heart. I love animals, The US Coast Guard, fairy tales, Disney, Biology, Nature, Color, the beautiful state of MICHIGAN, Classic Literature, & a million other things. I could go one by one and tell you why I love what I l love what I love but I hope that my art can speak for itself. Everything I create I put myself into. Every piece has a story. Everything has a message. I am a very private person but as I begin this journey I realize how important it is to my art that I open myself up to tell you why I am doing what I am doing. Some pieces represent the lighter & more playful parts of myself, but some speak to the darkest & most sincere parts of myself...either way and no matter what, they are all me & come from the heart. I hope I can create things that will speak further & well beyond my own heart.
It is always important to me to give credit where credit is due. My store name is after my mom, Jayne. I cannot express to you enough how she has inspired me to begin this website. I am not brave enough on my own…and she is also the reason I grew up in the environment that I did, where I could create my art freely. I am equally inspired by my grandmother who has a classic beauty & style that is beyond anything I have ever seen, or will ever see again. My grandmother was timeless & classic in way that is so rare it seems impossible. Still, above anyone else on earth I am inspired by my grandfather. He was kind, brave, beautiful, sincere, and above anything I could ever imagine. Everything I do will only ever mean anything because I knew him. I am so lucky to have known these people so closely. I am lucky.
