With a love of retro seasonal decorations and imagery, I started my art business in 2018.
Based out of my home studio in Chicago, I love to adapt and replicate many different vintage art styles in my work. I have expanded this work to many clients and companies as well as many exhibitions & art shows. Those can all be found on my portfolio website here.
I have always been drawn to retro style decor and accents as long as I can remember. As a child, I would always get so excited around times of holiday celebration. All of those warm cozy feelings mixed with spending time with my friends and relatives made for the best holidays. As I got older, I put this love on the hold for some time through college. However, that nostalgic look started to come through in most of the work I was creating in college. Flash forward to 2018, when I got this crazy idea to start making his own retro style decor. What started as a couple of stickers and a pin has now blossomed into jointed cutouts, hundreds of cutout designs, pins, hanging banners, apparel, embroidered hats, ornaments, tree toppers and coming soon mini figures.
Now after two years in business, hundreds of orders, stocked products in several shops and a former Etsy shop I have opened this brand new official shop showcasing my latest items.
My ultimate goal with this line of products is to provide as much joy and nostalgia for people to enjoy for years to come. Over the years to come expect to see new products, new themes and lots of new seasonal products.
