Hi there. We're Gina & Matt. We are real people working hard at making a creative living. Thanks for being here.
How it started
As soon as we began dating, we were sharing our dreams about making a living creating things. I was a fiend for DIY TV and Matt carried a sketchbook everywhere.
How it's going
What a journey it's been! Leaving long-established careers, moving cities, pivoting the business again (and again)...but we're still here, happy, and dare I say it? We're making this thing work.

Best friend and business partner. He focuses on his own creative business of writing and illustrating books, while somehow still managing a number of Global Backyard tasks.

So many hats, so little time! Luckily my former career as a librarian was the perfect preparation for how to learn everything.
