Community Over Competition!
One of my favorite things about being an artist is the sense of community. My mission is to Share The Love. My intentions are to inspire the non creative minds to open up and explore their own creativity no matter how deeply hidden it may lay! No matter how old you are, where you were born, or what your medium, if I like your work I will feature you here!

I have an Instagram friendship that blossomed over what we now call a “Trust Fall Trade”. A Trust Fall is when you fall backwards and trust that the person Both of us create handmade products that the other admired so one day we agreed to make a trade. She sent me samples of her new skincare line before she launched her products to the public, and I sent her a couple of the new baskets I was teaching myself to hook up. I was excited to sample and help out a fellow female entrepreneur, but I wasn’t expecting noticeable results and was already considering how to carefully word my review of her items. Boy oh boy did I eat my words before they were even formed though because I saw and felt noticeable results to my skin within the first Hour of using the Rosewater Face wash and Acne Treatment Oil. I am excited to stock my own bathroom and guest house with this incredible handmade skincare line formulated with rosewater and essential oils and made with loving intent.
