Why I Create.
I create art to tell a story I can’t express with words alone. Color is my vocabulary. I embrace bold colors, lively textures, and nature-inspired forms to create dynamic compositions that excite and delight the viewer. My intention is to disrupt the everyday and inspire happiness. I create art because I cannot imagine living any other way.
Every item emblazoned with my art—from scarf to handbag to notepad to card—is a vibrant declaration of the joy I see in life. I invite you to express yourself with my colorful creations so that you, too, may confidently stand out from the crowd and celebrate the happiness of life.
MC believes in the power of supporting local. MC strives to keep as much local as possible starting with the paint. Mavec use Sherwin Williams, a local Cleveland based company, for the paint in her artwork. MC partners with local manufacturers to produce all MC paper goods both product and marketing materials as well as local craftsman to handmake all the leather.
Lost by many today, quality is of the upmost importance at MC. Ensuring your MC products will last to bring you ongoing joy is always the objective. From the initial idea all the way to the finished product, quality is established and maintained.
MC strives to find new ways to improve existing products. Whether that is design, quality or visual appearance every MC product reflects great attention to detail. The goal is to make your life easier and prettier. Everyday items don't have to just be functional they too can make a statement, be unique, improve quality of life and look good.
MC cares deeply about making good choices in regards to the environment. MC uses 100% compostable clear packaging for all paper goods instead of traditional plastic which just sits in landfills. This eco-friendly alternative will breakdown over time and reduces the impact on our planet. MC looks to create products that support eco conscious lifestyles like the eco-friendly shopping bags that can be used in many ways. Whether it's packaging, product, reducing overall waste by repurposing as much as possible, or recycling MC strives to always keep a green mindset. MC cares so deeply that at the MC studio items are collected to be recycled and then taken to a recycling drop off site since the studio building does not recycle. MC believes every effort counts.
