First post

Thanks so much for stopping by! Having an art business has been a dream of mine for years. I have been so blessed by the opportunities that have come as a result of simply being faithful to create, learn and grow. My desire is to create artwork with encouraging words for your home using natural and sustainable resources. I have pieces in my shop that I have designed but if you have an idea in mind, I would love to create a custom piece for you! Use the contact page and let's collaborate! I am hoping to blog more and keep you updated on news and new designs. In the meantime, you can always follow on Instagram where I post regularly @field_and_forest_design.  ...
