"Sitting still with this book, soaking up the gorgeous illustrations and thought-provoking words, has been truly wonderful! Taking some time out of my hectic life to 'Be Present' for myself was not only a pleasure, but a much-needed break. Calm, meditative, intriguing and captivating - just a few words to describe my experience with this treasure. Treat yourself to this gem and order one or two for friends and family - I did. You won't be disappointed!"

"When the whole world is falling apart, Stacie provides some inspiration, beauty, and thought provoking encouragement. Her messages of positivity and accompanying illustrations are geared towards artists but can really be applied to anyone. I love this book so much I've already purchased 4 copies and will probably purchase a few more. I want to share it with all the women in my life. Well done!"


Stacie's journey of being an illustrator began out of necessity: to financially support her husband who was a graduate student and to take care of her growing family. Through hard work, determination, and A LOT of trial and error, Stacie has become a force in the creative world, earning respect from her peers with her transparency, vulnerability, and dedication to the industry.

Over the past several years, Stacie has traveled and taught to hundreds of students around the country, sharing her passion for design, making, and business growth.

It all started because of a little passion, enthusiasm, and bravery.
