I create cute character clip art graphics, digital paper patterns and various other digital design resources geared toward the micro-biz owner or blogger.
My art comes ready made and ready to use, perfect for business branding, social media profiles, website design and all manner of other crafty projects (limited only by the imagination!).
You'll find a variety of character graphics in my shop along with general everyday clipart, seamless pattern designs, textures and icons. All of my graphics are beautifully crafted and ready to use in any design project at a pixel perfect print resolution.
After years of selling my designs mainly thru Etsy and my own website, I have recently chosen to sell my work exclusively at DesignBundles.net. I love this platform for it's ease of use and fantastic customer service. With a comprehensive licensing policy and generous affiliate program it has become a top destination for digital craft shoppers.
As an added bonus, Design Bundles works hard to keep copyright and trademark infringement off its platform, so customers can shop with added peace of mind that they are buying resources they are allowed to use!
As a self-taught digital artist I love both early 20th-century illustration and the modern craft movement. While I adore styles like Anime and Kawaii I also love the vintage feel of the 40's and 50's. So with these many influences I developed my own distinctive and simple style, a naive feminine ‘girl next door’ look that appeals to many of today's small business owners, crafters and bloggers.
Like many artists or creatives, it all began way back in childhood with a passion for drawing. And so I sketched away through my school years eventually taking a deeper interest in art history. My career path however headed off into the work world of retail, wholesale and service based business; as it turns out, I have a rather handy mix of both left and right brain traits, so I’m equally pragmatic and logical vs creative and artistic. A beautiful mix in business as a creative problem solver.
Teaching myself new skills has been a constant pattern in my life. I much prefer to dive in on my own and figure things out than to sit in a classroom working at the slower pace of the group. This practice served me well throughout my working career as it does now as a solo-preneur and across my blog you’ll find links to many of the resources I use or recommend as well as tricks and tips for the novice business DIY’er.
Lovelytocu was my very first digital product line, developed while I was living in the UK for just over a decade. Relocating back to my home country of Canada I worked on mini projects, creating a mini flamingo product line as well as a broad selection of craft templates. Currently I'm living in the USA in the eternal sunshine of southern California where I've turned my attention more towards digital templates and crafting and where I continue to develop and add to my digital catalog.
