The idea for ‘Grease and Grace’ began over a period of years when I had many conversations with my dad and step-mom about starting a business combining all of our artistic skills. Then one day we decided to stop talking and start doing.
My artistic style ranges from the rockabilly pinup scene, to botanical and spiritual illustration, to time-period specific themes. Therefore, you’ll find quite a variety of items in my repertoire.
Not only will you find print illustration, but I offer sculptures, miniature paintings on antique cedar boxes, and many other unique decor items. Many of these are custom commissioned pieces, but there are always some ready-made available at our shop.
Also, I created my own line of greeting cards, with harder to find sentiments and categories.
I’m inspired by historic clothing design, textiles, wall coverings, paper ephemera, antiques, and on, and on!

I also have an educational children’s book, Buffalo on the Ridge available on Amazon!
I wrote and illustrated this story just before my daughter was born. Buffalo on the Ridge includes a glossary of flora and fauna native to Custer State Park, where it takes place. Children will love the adventure and detailed, colorful full page illustrations. Adults enjoy the educational background.
