Peace Apparel Co.

Free Spirit Babe // Peace Apparel Co.

I am so excited. As I sit here bouncing my beautiful baby, I finally have opened Peace Apparel Co.. Although I spent a lot of time making designs and choosing only the ones that I felt reflected my vision of inner-peace, it’s about so much more than putting those designs on clothing. It’s about supporting environmental sustainability, and it’s about supporting small business, and it’s about supporting American jobs. That’s what excites me the most – it’s so much bigger than just a clothing line. Continue reading

Art Without Thinking.

I’m beginning to realize I love the paintings and drawings that I come up with more if my mind is completely centered and I’m not distracted thinking about something else.
