Hello and thanks for visiting my shop!
My name is Johana. I'm happily married with two amazing kids and one dog. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, raised in Miami, Florida and produced in Medellin, Colombia. I currently live near Philly, PA, am a full-time mom and freelancer of everything art!
I started my shop on Instagram May 2015. I started with bubble gum jewelry. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. Then I thought…I know how to draw and paint, why not try painting beads instead? On October 16, 2015 I posted my first hand painted necklace on Instagram and received my first 100 likes on a post lol. Prior to this post I had been averaging 30 likes per pic. I’m a statistics girl…I knew this was the route I had to take. And so here we are!
In 2018 I decided I needed to add more items to my shop. I had been taking on so much handmade/painted work that I was burning myself out! That's when digital art started. It took long enough! I also started collaborating with other fantastic shops to bring you more magic merch.
Currently I am doing it all! Merch and handmade/hand painted. It's my dream job =) Please visit me on Instagram @bubblechicchick to see what I'm up to and for updates.
My family is my number one supporter. My mother made the first official order through Etsy, which brings me much joy. My daughter models, my son helps me pick colors and puts his two cents into EVERYTHING lol. Last, but not least...my husband says "we're going to become rich off of me"...now I know that's a long shot, and that's ok. I don't want to be rich, I want to be happy. And this makes me happy!
Hope you enjoy my items as much as I enjoy creating them!
