Just in case you need a reminder...


A New Star

Here’s a sympathy design I created for American Greetings. One of my dearest friends had just lost her dad as I was painting this, so I think of her family whenever I see this piece. That star twinkles brightest whenever someone is playing Celtic music.

I really enjoyed creating this mixed media painting for a tropical workshop at American Greetings.

I‘m excited to show off the wedding stationery I created for my oldest friend! Her oceanside Florida wedding had a relaxed, breezy feel which I tried to capture with lush watercolor flora. I’m so pleased with how it turned out!

Day 6 of the 100 Day Project

A patterned silhouette.

Day 5 of the 100 Day Project

Experimenting in Procreate for the first time and loving the luxury of a portable digital sketchbook.

Day 4 of the 100 Day Project

Cut paper birds. My son and I had some fun cutting paper together (until the Instagram-worthy moment devolved into tears when he decided his safety scissors didn't look as much fun as my pointy grown-up ones. It was fun while it lasted).

Day 3 of The 100 Day Project

It's been a cold and soggy week. If I were a little bird caught in a rain shower, I'd be grateful for a sturdy mushroom to keep me dry (and a little snail friend to keep me company). 🐌🍄🐦

Cutest pencil sharpener

Adopted this little red caboose a couple years ago at a wedding in California. We rode a steam train into a redwood forest for the ceremony! One of my favorite memories. :)

Day 2 of The 100 Day Project

Did you know a group of goldfinches is called a "charm" and a group of wrens is called a "chime?" Adorable.
