I started back in 1997 when I needed to quit my job due to a family situation. I determined to teach myself digital art and how to compose a web site and within a year had developed a 100 page web site, each page representing a different dog breed with products I decorated at home with my original designs and sent to customers. I was working 7 days a week filling orders for several years when, thank goodness, Zazzle came along and now with a few clicks I am able to offer dozens and dozens of wonderful products with my designs.
Back in 2000, I was discovered on the internet and was featured as one of two artists in the 5 star book "Decorative Painting for Fun and Profit" by Susan Young. In 2015, I illustrated a book now available on Amazon called: "Dogs: A Kids Book of Dog Breeds", winner of the 2016 International Book Awards category Animals/Pets - available as an eBook or paperback. I feel truly blessed for the internet and Zazzle offering me the opportunity to do what I love.
I also hand paint t-shirts, make jewelry and other hand crafted items and offer them in my Etsy store: heartbridge.etsy.com and on eBay, mostly around Christmas time.
