Needlepoint makes me smile.

Whether I am in my studio painting a new design, collaborating with a client

on a custom piece, or watching my favorite Netflix series with the needle dancing on my own canvas.


For me, needlepoint brings happiness and tranquility, provides a creative outlet,

and has introduced me to a world of passionate and gifted stitchers.

From one stitcher to another, I hope my canvases help you to find your bliss.

With love and a smile,

Introducing ... the KC Collection

I am thrilled to collaborate with Kathy Casey and bring her beautiful art to needlepoint! Kathy is an award winning illustrator, designer, and photographer with over 30 years of experience in the field of graphic design and illustration.


Her work has been published by multiple companies including Great Arrow Graphics, Hallmark Cards Inc., Creative Converting, JeanMarie Creations, PaperMagic, and Design Design. She has been recognized four times by the Greeting Card Association of America with their highest honor, the Louie Award for Excellence.

Kathy has been drawing since she can remember. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, she pursued an interest in calligraphy, typography, graphic design, and illustration. Her work has encompassed a wide range of design disciplines: illustration, photography, digital fine art, corporate identity, and publication design.

Giving Back...

the GUB Collection

GUB canvases are a collaboration inspired by original, handmade cards created by Veronica Schmerling. Veronica began to make her cards as therapy following her daughter Liz’s passing from brain cancer in 2005. Veronica has sold her cards for 18 years and has contributed over $75,000 to the Elizabeth S. Schmerling Endowed Scholarship Fund at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. 


The GUB collection is named after Liz’s favorite stuffed animal, a ladybug named “Gub.” With any canvas purchased in the GUB series, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the scholarship fund. The fund has awarded 44 scholarships to talented, rising seniors who are on track to earn a bachelor‘s degree in architecture, the field in which Liz received her degree.

Thank you for supporting this cause

when you purchase a GUB canvas!

The DK  Collection

A collaboration that will thrill pet owners...or any stitcher who likes to smile!  

Canvases starting with "DK" are a partnership with Dave Klug, a talented illustrator and artist in Pittsburgh, PA. Dave's focus on dogs and cats is whimsical, colorful and bold. The artistic simplicity of his designs translates beautifully to needlepoint canvas and allows for the use of creative stitches if desired. Dave's art has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Reader's Digest, Time, Time for Kids, Highlights, and many more. And he has worked with local Pittsburgh companies such as Highmark, PNC, Primanti Bros. Restaurants, and The Carnegie Museums.


If you are in the Pittsburgh area, make sure to visit Dave's gallery, Double Dog Studios, in Carnegie. Or, check out his website,, and let me know which design you would like to see on needlepoint canvas next!
