About:

My name is Jess, I’m 32 and I create greeting cards and other little works of art I’m inspired to. In 2016 I developed a rare migraine condition called New Daily Persistent Headaches (NDPH) which is a headache/migraine that starts out of the blue one day and never goes away, it’s there when you wake up, when you are asleep…always. Unfortunately I didn’t have a diagnosis at the beginning so I just lived in a dark cave with audiobooks as my best friends. No reading, no screens, rarely conversations as everything was just too loud. Finally after about 4 years, and about 1500 audiobooks 🙄, and after trying every treatment/diet/doctor I could think of to solve my mystery, the 4th neurologist was finally able to diagnose me!! Now with medication the pain levels are low enough to function most days! I can look at screens, read books, watch tv, create art and live a little! All in moderation of course and if the the weather pressure shifts all bets are off. That’s why you’ll see a little less of me in spring and fall 🙃. Also, just living with chronic pain for so long I’ve learned to function through pretty high pain levels, so that’s helped a lot as well and I’m sure many fellow spoonies can relate.

Because of this, I was able to turn my love of art and my love of making greeting cards for friends and family into a small business💙. It’s been such a game changer to have art in my life again and to be able to share it with others. And for the first time in over 5 years being able to bring in a bit of income really makes me feel useful again🥰.

So whether you’re a fellow artist, a fellow chronically ill warrior like me, a sponsor, or simply a beautiful fan of art and life, I hope you’ll say hi.

“I wanted this card design to spread cheerfulness and represent our warrior community, which is why some of these friendly hearts have visible or invisible chronic illnesses or disabilities. For example some warriors wear sunglasses because of light sensitivity, and...
