Hi! I'm Courtney

I'm a goofy, fun loving, ceramic artist living in Austin TX who's passionate about helping others to create and experience the joy of art.

From Corporate America to Creative entrepreneur, I know first hand what it's like to feel bored and scared to start something new. I taught myself everything I know about ceramics. Now I'm hooked. My philosophy...art is not about the end piece but rather about the experience along the way.

    My daughter and son in law gave me the purple cactus for Christmas. I lost my Mother to Alzheimer's three years ago and it's a perfect reminder! I've placed it in my home office so it will shine daily! Love it!

    This set is perfect for my 4 kids (ages 3, 5, 7, & 8). Everything we needed was in the DIY kit and they each had fun painting their own special ornament to add to the tree. The kit is top-quality and arrived quickly, making it a perfect gift!

    I loved working with Brush Strokes! We had Courtney create custom ornaments for our wedding favors. They were absolutely beautiful. 100% would recommend!
