Tell us about your business.I am a self-taught screen-printer working out of my home studio in Austin Texas. I've been into art, design and fashion since I was a little kid. By the time my daughter was born in 2002 I was hand painting my designs on onesies and shirts and a few years later I started my journey of slowly learning the art of screen-printing. I've always been sensitive to natural and organic practices and use environmentally safe water-based inks on organic and environmentally friendly products. I've branched into constructing a number of my products and I eventually plan to expand into more pattern prints and apparel design. I currently don't have any employees but am hoping to start hiring by the beginning of next year.
