Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.

My name is Arielle and I’m the woman behind the shop name and the heart behind each canvas and hand-painted card. I started painting one day as something creative to do while I was home on maternity leave with my first daughter and it turned into a small shop overnight.  Alongside the help of the local business in the historic Blagden Alley DC I have been able to share my joy of painting with the local community during holiday markets. My goal is to create unique pieces that create positive energy to the customer who buys them and to those they gift my items to.

My two daughters.

What is your specialty?

Small Art on Canvas and unique greeting cards.

My belief in my Jewish religion.

What do you want to achieve with your work and what are your wishes for the future?

I hope to create positive vibes through my colorful art and cards.  My wish for the future is to have an art studio and to create unity throughout the Jewish community with my art.

Where can we find your work?
