Hi! I  am Clara. I am starting this new blog to share my love for art and being creative. I figure this blog will be a good place to show some of the art projects I teach to elementary school kids as well as some of the other art I like. Continue reading


so far so good

I got a new camera for christmas and have been taking a photo each day so far. I am also encouraging my two kids to do the same so we can have a chronicle of daily life at the end of the year. It’s only day 9 of 2011 so far and I am hopeful that my camera Continue reading

Happy New Year

I love the thought of everything being new and getting a fresh start. Happy New Year! May 2010 be filled with good things and the energy (be it physical, creative or spiritual) to cultivate more. With the new year I have just decided on a whim to delete all my old posts (there were less than 20 and the last one was two years ago…sad!) and start anew. My plans for this year are to focus on marketing my art/graphic design business. I love creating art for people!

About me

I am a creative soul making a living drawing what I call chick graphics. They are cute, eye-catching cartoons I do of my clients. The majority of my clients then use them as part of their brand, on their business cards, blogs, Twitter, Facebook. I also design marketing materials (business cards, postcards, advertising) and just about anything else. I do illustrations and am proud to say that I illustrated my first 2 books last summer! (I’ll add those to my blog as soon as I can take pics of the books.) I design scrapbooking kits/paper and digital scrapbooking kits too.

When I’m not working, I like to decorate my house, play with my Boston Terrier, read magazines, look at and be inspired by art, paint, cook and eat, work in my garden, and spend time with my fabulous family!
