I have a BFA in graphic design and work in advertising and package design. It was only recently that I started painting ornaments and decided to sell them on Etsy. I love being able to paint and create new items by hand since most of my advertising work is done on a computer. I have recently started painting glassware, snow globes, pots and other giftware items. My shop is named after my Chocolate Labrador Ginger who passed away from cancer right before I opened my Etsy shop. When she was a puppy we playfully called her Gingerspice.
