ONLINE STORE LINKS

*UPDATE* DINO & PANDA INC Storenvy Shop is officially open!

I'm slowly adding more and more stuff, so keep checking back here for updates on my progress :) 

Dino & Panda Inc on Storenvy​​

You can find my work printed on various products (clothing, mugs, scarves, pillows, laptop skins and sleeves, etc) at Redbubble as well!

And!!!!!! You can find my digital designs in my Threadless Artist Shop printed on numerous styles of mens, womens, and childrens clothing, notebooks, towels, mugs, bags and other fun stuff. These are cheaper than Redbubble probably because of the printing technology required.
Check out both shops to decide the look you like best!

"Artwork dedicated to making you smile"

My Inspiration
"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." ~Picasso
Everything has the potential to be inspirational. Being an artist allows us to view reality in many creative ways.  There is an exhaustive list of things that inspire me but some those big ideas: music, nature, languages, space and astronomy, history, architecture, cultures, and animals.  

To quote a song from the Lion King, "From the day we arrive on the planet...there's more to see than can ever be seen, more to do than can ever be done." Through my artwork, I have a lot of freedom to explore different media, topics, concepts, styles, and ways to convey ideas. Art is also what keeps me sane in a very insane world! 

As an art teacher, I hope to be an inspiration to my students while also being inspired by their creative and imaginative minds.. The best thing I think anyone can learn is to express themselves through art.

Dino & Panda 
Dino and Panda are my original characters I created many years ago to help me work through some things that were happening in my life. They were, in a way, my alteregos. Panda represents me and Dino represented the perfect partner in my mind. They were created out of heartbreak but have helped me heal and find true love! Along the way I realized that beyond healing myself, I could create artwork to spread love and happiness in the world, one piece of art at a time! 

"Art is one thing that can go on mattering once it has stopped hurting." ~Elizabeth Bowen
