Mission: Sharing the experience & joy of nature through my drawings on quality functional goods for everyday life.
In the gift industry since 1989, I ran a successful retail store for the majority of my career. In 2008 I started creating T-Shirts & baby apparel mostly at the store I worked for, & a couple retailers. In 2016 I started pursuing growing my wholesale & added glassware & gifts to my line featuring my best selling drawings, and as of early 2020 gratefully became a full time artist creating work that represents my love of nature & sharing it with the world; thanks to the support of all of you.
Salty Raven is a gifts & apparel Art line with “Seriously Cool Goods” featuring my original artwork on a variety of high quality Apparel, Accessories, Glassware & Gifts. My amazing partner James helps me operate Salty Raven from our studio in downtown Tillamook, Oregon. We produce most of our goods locally. My core Salty Raven designs (Seasons K Designs) are minimalist with a vintage feel that celebrate nature, architecture & my favorite destinations. Many even incorporate silhouettes from my photography. My Flock of Gerrys line & Musical Art Book series began in 2017. Inspired by our pet seagull we named “Gerry”, the images are full of color, life & FUN. I don’t stop drawing a character until they make me smile every time I look at them. The collectable characters are available in a variety of apparel & gift options for the whole family, plus my books!
