What was borne out of a love of little things for little hands has turned into a chance for me to express my love of all-things-nerdy for adult hands too. Painting pegs started as a unique gift for my nephew, but has morphed into more. I've always collected things I love, and I've found many of those things to be small; expressions of my passion that can be brought along or placed on a shelf. I like the bonding that can happen over a love of characters (literary, movie, comic book, historical) when I meet new people, and anything that makes meeting new people easier is aces in my book. I now paint as much for myself as I do for others, and it is the best form of therapy out there, for me.
