My name is Leela Rae Hein, I am the owner and sole artist of Riley Mica Designs. I live in Columbia, MD with my husband and our seven year old son, Riley Mica, for whom I named my company.
I started my company in 2012. I wanted to be able to put my love of art to use, and working outside of my home made spending time with my then three year old harder than I liked. I had loved making art since I was a little girl and I had briefly attended the Corcoran College of Art, but I am mostly self- taught, so it took a little while to find exactly what I excelled at.
I make a little bit of everything. Hand painted glassware, hand painted glass ornaments, hand painted and hand made jewelry, watercolor and pen and ink paintings and prints, note cards and Christmas cards, bookmarks, polymer clay sculpture and even hand painted stones.
I have an online store on etsy.com ( www.etsy.com/shop/rileymicadesigns ) and I sell most of my art through there, and I take custom orders as well, painting people's pets on coffee mugs and ornaments, as well as making hand drawn and lettered paintings for kids and guest book style "fingerprint trees" for special events.
