Started in 2013 as a way to positively embrace being a geek, Mini Geek Boutique has evolved into more than just another geek store.
With a background in digital media and a teaching career spanning 13 years, my art took a back seat until I took the plunge to go full time in 2018, focusing on creating products that encouraged you to embrace your inner geek.
Tired of hearing “Geek” as a negative stereotype, I started creating clothes and products that encouraged people young and old, to embrace their inner geek and to not be afraid of their hobbies and passions.
The characters I create are whimsical and cute and I am a sucker for a good pun. I want people to see my work as having a positive impact on being a geek, and focus on empathy and positive mental health.
The products that use my illustrations are made by me, most of the time. I use a flat bed press, heat transfer vinyl, and full colour transfer for clothing. I have a mug press and I even make my own stickers, thus reducing the need for third party manufacturers and (hopefully) reducing the amount of energy that each product uses.
I may have left teaching but teaching hasn't left me and I try and create resources that are informative and educational for geeks, young and old.
I'd love to hear from you!
