Joyful Art for Joyful Folks

Bringing happy colors to all things travel, nature, & those furry friends we call cats.


Hi! I’m Angela

COME ON IN, TAKE A SEAT — I'LL MAKE THE DANDELION TEA. Here’s a list of some things I love: travel, biking, community gardens, cats (duh!), and making art that brings people joy!

Really, there’s nothing more exciting to me than plopping down after a morning cycle, grabbing a sharp pencil and a blank piece of paper, and dreaming up my next collection. 

Because every logo design, dinnerware set, magazine spread, or custom painting has a story to tell. And I want to make sure it’s told in the most inspiring, entertaining, and fun way possible!
