Hello there, friends. It’s been awhile. Cloud9 Design has undergone some major growth, rebranding, and a metamorphosis of sorts.

What started a decade ago as a small little graphic design business eventually became a full creative studio offering: graphic design, website design, illustration, branding, photography, and a handmade business on etsy, as well.

Well, I have begun the process of distilling what I do down to only those things that I truly love, and what brings me joy, and helps others.

So, I do not offer website design or graphic design as a service anymore.

I will, however, be offering: Documentary Photography Storytelling Sessions, inspirational art, Creative Workshops for Women, (Painting, Hand Lettering, Photography, Art Journaling, and more!) and   Creative Heart: mentoring to Creative Women Business Owners (yay!)

Look for new workshops, retreats, plus lots of new workbooks, worksheets, and more creative business tools to help you in the future.

You’ll hear all the tips and shortcuts I’ve learned along the way to take the guesswork out of your business. I’ve worked with small business owners for over a decade. And together, we’ve learned what works, what doesn’t, and what tools you need most.

Plus, we are all DIY’r’s right? We’d much rather teach ourselves a new skill set through education. So, you’ll learn all of the programs, systems, marketing tools, design tools, and website tools that I use, and that have helped my businesses and my clients’ businesses to grow.

You can take future workshops on: Blogging, Marketing, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photoshop, Selling at Art Fairs and Craft Shows, the Ins and Outs of Etsy,  How to Run  a Successful Etsy Shop, and more. (Please let me know in the comments below what you’d most like to see first! )

I’m really excited about the upcoming Creative Heart online workshop.


The  new workshop (which I adored creating for you) is called Creative Heart: The Workshop for Creative Success. Share your gifts, tell your story, and grow a successful creative business from the heart. A workshop for heart-centered, soulful Creative Women Entrepreneurs.


If you are an artist, photographer, designer, handmade artisan, farmer, etsy business owner, creative, or some other version of a dreamer and a maker – then get on the mailing list to know when classes start!

You’ll  be so glad you invested in your business.

I love helping you do what you do best by telling your story. I am a storyteller at heart. I weave words, images, and art to tell stories. And I want to help you tell your story.

Are tired of having a website that doesn’t light you up?

Are you frustrated that your business card doesn’t really show what you can do?

Are you tired of trying to figure out what marketing works?

Do you feel pushy when you are advertising or marketing your business?

Are  you an introvert who doesn’t like networking?

I hear you! Me too! I’ve been there. I can offer you a guidebook that will help you find your way, build a community, and find your purpose, and discover your wings.

Do you long for marketing that feels real, authentic, and from the heart?

Do you wish you had community of kindreds that urged you on when you made mistakes, and celebrated your successes with you?

These are all the things you will get and more from the Creative Heart workshop.

I can help you discover your passion and tell your story in a way that is from the heart and that resonates with your ideal people. It will attract them to you! I used to think I had to be everything to everyone. But, that’s just not true.

When you specialize, or find your niche, you will actually attract clients who adore you and rave about you to their friends! It’s all in how you tell your story. 🙂

I remember those early days of passion-filled discovery that fueled the start of my business.

I remember feeling so confused over all the endless information and choices. Where should I start?  What does a creative business plan look like? Well, I want to help you by telling you all the things I’ve learned along the way and wished someone had told me back then.
