aimee dolich

“I’ve loved color, words, writing, hand lettering and doodling for as long as I can remember, but for much of my life I kept all those things in separate jars. Then one day, I thought “Hmmm. What if…?” I tossed everything in a bowl, put the mixer on high, and I found that I liked living in my chaos of wordy color. So I stayed, and named it Artsyville. It’s my work, play and therapy all in one.”
