I have exciting news to share with you.
When I first moved to Houston five years ago, I dreamed of having a little kiosk in a mall to showcase my designs. But, life has its own great plan that unfolded a few days ago.
This past weekend was not just one to honor our Presidents, but to also celebrate the opening of our PopUp Shop in the Houston Galleria. What is PopUp Shop? We are a collection of Houston artists, makers and entrepreneurs who are committed to creating high-quality products. It is a community of creatives that have explored the idea of putting our works out for people to purchase and enjoy. Our store is on the first level of the mall, right outside of Nordstrom. In case you aren’t sure if you’re at the right place, you will see a light pink wall on the right side of the store which happens to be my space! You can find my illustrations on the entire front wall, showcasing my diverse products that include prints, mugs, stationery, coasters, and more.
Unique to the PopUp Shop, we will have a few events every month that we will host at the store. Some of the upcoming events specific to my brand include a Fashion Illustration workshop on February 28th and a Women’s Health Event on March 8th. Even though we just opened, we are in full swing of events happening at the PopUp Shop! Sign up for the email list here, and you will be notified about the events we host at the store that you won’t want to miss!
Five years later, I have a space in a store in the Houston Galleria and I could not be more excited! Thank you to all my supporters who made this dream a reality.

This is 7! I can’t believe it! If you have followed me for a while, you know I don't believe in the “starving artist”. I believe being your own boss is the NOW and the future of the industry.
7 years being a full time artist and entrepreneur has taught me so much more than I could have imagined. I am sharing 7 lessons I learned in the past 7 years that helped me tremendously. Hope you will find they are useful for your own adventure! 👍🏼
