Greetings Ai Family!!!

I have been part of Ai since I was 3. I remember playing in the shipping boxes and the smell of hot rubber wafting out of the garage where it all began. Our family business sprouted from my mom’s desire to be able to spend more time with her favorite creations—us kids!!

Art Impressions has brought us closer as a family through the years. Each member has been involved in some way, and I especially love to see the newest generation of little ones get involved. While they may not be in the shop gathering the same memories I had at their age, they can’t wait to excitedly greet everyone during our Annual Warehouse Sales, making Art Impressions memories of their own.

Each of you probably knows me from the videos, Expo Shows and tutorials that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to do over the years. I must admit, I’m not a naturally born artist like my mom, but diving into Watercolor the Art Impressions Way has helped me find my own definition of an artist. Our watercolor line has given me the ability to approach fine art free from the stresses of having to freehand a drawing before I can do what I really want to do, which is PAINT!!!

My greatest joy in working with and for Ai comes from our community—the people who share parts of their lives with us through creativity. I love the connections I’ve made through travel and social media. 

Art Impressions for me is more than a business, it’s an extension of our family.

Thank you all for being a part of all of this, a part of our family, and a part of the last 33 years. The support, encouragement and passion of our Art Impressions fans is what has brought us here, through ups and downs, changes and growth, and even everything going on in the world right now.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and above all, stay creative!

Happy Stamping!
