For years, I had this idea in the back of my mind of putting use to random illustrations made in my spare time and turning them into physical, tangible products. I didn’t know what exactly that would be until I created my very first enamel pin in 2016. I had so much fun that it quickly grew into a collection of over 20 pins, patches, and various accessories being sold all over the world, both online and in physical retail stores such as Bulletin in NYC and Witchsy.
I worked hard to create and make high quality pieces, and found people resonated with the soft, playful artwork I made, often seeing some piece of themselves in them. Since this was a one-woman side project of mine in addition to my full time job, I wanted to use my clout for good and often donated proceeds to organizations such as Planned Parenthood, NAACP, and the ACLU.
