Current Confession -- I'm an Addict

Did I ever mention I'm an addict? Oh sure, I have some of the ususal common addictions, you know, caffeine, chocolate, strappy sandals. But there's a darker, deeper addiction I usually keep secret. I . . . I . . . like to draw. I just can't stop. Some people say they must write. I must draw. My pen, pencil, marker, always makes its way to drawing. Writing down a phone number, taking notes, even on the grocery list at times, doodles, characters, and swirling geometric patterns emerge almost unintentionally. When I see them looking back at me, it makes me happy -- a smooth, peaceful high, releasing my stress through the tip of my pen, creating something new and fun.

So, I've created a new home for some of my drawings, The Birthday Stamp Store on Zazzle. Truth be known, I've been selling my drawings and photographs at Art Accompli for about a year. As I've found increasing success, it's been an impetus to create a new line focused on illustrations for children's birthday party invitations, cards, and matching stamps. You can visit the store at

If you have a special request, you can message me through the store and I'll be happy to work with you.
