This year has been rough on everyone. So instead of doing all of your holiday shopping at major chain stores please support small local businesses & artists.
Most of the products below were made by fellow background actors & crew members. Some of whom may be out of work because of COVID-19.
The first time I laid my hands on the clay, and threw my first piece, I just knew this was going to be a passion for me. The joy, the serenity, that creating a new piece brings me is such an important part of balancing my life. Learning, creating and becoming part of this community has been a wonderful experience - I would like to think my work reflects that sentiment.

Shopping small makes a huge impact on the creators
$50 at a large chain company isn't much, but $50 at a small local business makes all the difference. Especially during the holidays!

"My Sister Emma" is a project very close to my heart. I have worked with the disability community for many years and every sensory difference/ability detailed in this book reflects my experiences within the community. The story follows two siblings who take a trip to their neighborhood park. The siblings, Nathan and Emma, are twins. Emma has autism and spells on a board to communicate.
My hopes for this book are to educate and raise awareness about presuming intelligence in those with disabilities - specifically autism - inspire inclusion at a young age, and perhaps most importantly give children with autism, especially those who point/spell to communicate, a character to relate to. Hopefully, this children's book will educate the next generation and truly impact the mainstream social perspective on those with disabilities/different abilities.

Crystals and hand wrapped crystal pendants.
A little over a year ago, I really got into collecting crystals out of the love for their beauty. Then, quickly, I started to realize that collecting them and learning about them really helped me with my anxiety and depression; they gave me something to be excited about! Since then, I have really wanted to share my love for crystals with others, so I started wrapping crystals into beautiful pendants and have recently started selling crystals along with my pendants as well.
