» I am currently adding more card designs for Autumn/Fall as well as Winter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Stay tuned for more designs with those themes that include paintings created with watercolors, acrylics, and mixed media with gouache paints!
If you see a card and want that particular design addressed to a specific someone and can't find it in my shop, reach out to me through the Contact the Artist section at the bottom of this page. Chances are I can design what you need.
About Me: I believe that my paintings come from a place that all artists must tap into in order to express themselves. Once one is in that creative flow then all things are possible. Creating something every day is a wonderful discipline and keeps one in that creative flow or in that place that only those who create know of. This place is where time stops and all else ceases to exist. When I am painting this place becomes my entire universe. It is a sacred and treasured place that I find myself needing to connect with time and time again. Hopefully, you will enjoy the products of my time spent in that wonderful creative space.
I have been painting for over 30 years and love exploring and discovering different techniques of creative expression. I currently create using watercolor, gouache, acrylic paint and various markers and pencils.
To view more of my artwork and purchase art prints visit Itaya's Designs on Zazzle.com where I offer other products and items with my artwork featured on it.
My Interests: All things creative! My interests and creative passions seem to evolve and change with the seasons. I love to sew and crochet it seems more in the fall and winter. In the spring and summer, I am drawn more to painting and taking photos of all of life around me. I am always learning and expanding my creative skills.
Itaya, your cards are so lovely.

Hi, Itaya! You've got some beautiful work! I see that we have a similar eye. Sometime I'll have to send you a couple of my shots that are real similar to a couple of yours. I love the syncronicity. :) And I adore your doxie picture. -Robin (AngelDogCards)

Itaya, a compliment from you regarding my artwork is a compliment indeed. Me, I love your work - and I also really love your Bio - you have a way of saying what I wish I could say. And you sure know how to make an interesting blog etc. An all-around talented artist would seem to describe you well. :) Great work! And Thank You.

Really beautiful cards, Itaya. I especially like your use of light, and your Birdie in Tree card is one of the sweetest I've seen. I've added to my Favorites. Tom at Comical Captions.
