HELLO!

I create cute character clip art graphics and digital design resources that work well for the micro-biz owner or blogger.

My art comes ready made and ready to use, perfect for business branding, social media profiles and all manner of crafty projects.

WE'RE EXPANDING!

Coming this fall and winter we'll be expanding our product line to include vintage imagery lovingly converted to clip art as well as a line of pre-designed branding packages to help you market your small biz.


ABOUT ME

As a self-taught digital artist I am fascinated by 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 in mind I’ve 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.

My flagship business; Lovelytocu, was born in the UK where I lived for over a decade. When I relocated back to my home country of Canada I spent a few years in Calgary AB before a more recent move to sunny southern California where I now reside with my husband and our three canine babes. Who knows where the next stop will be, but I'm sure we'll enjoy the journey!

Thanks for stopping by,
Shawnna
