I've been working on this painting for some time now. A couple months. Which is a really long time for me. Usually when I start something new, I dive right in and can't stop until I finish it. But, as this was more of a "personal" piece, and the first... Continue reading

Spring is here and the trees are beginning to bloom here in Virginia. I love seeing flowers pop up over night, signifying new life and beautiful warm days to come. This piece celebrates a lazy stroll picking flowers, and how even the weeds look dignified when part of a spring... Continue reading

I really enjoyed painting these two cuties, Claire and William. Their dad commissioned these as a birthday present for his wife. He was so excited to give them to her, and I just love being a part of those special surprises. For more information on commissioned portraits, shoot me an... Continue reading

Is it spring yet? Actually, I definitely can't complain. Despite the ice and snow that fell today, we've had some beautiful weather in Virginia the past few weeks. And I enjoy watching the snow fall out my window as I create. Here are #'s 57 & 58 of my 365... Continue reading

I was in the mood to make something extra girlie this week, which led to #55, Dream Big Little One. However, I quickly had requests for a boy version. Thus, #56. I'm not super inspired by things that aren't super girlie and feminine (mainly flowers, polka dots, etc) So, it's... Continue reading

I am sitting here in my studio with itchy eyes, a runny nose, and constant sneezing. It's snowing outside - well, a snowy, icy mix - and I'm pretty much over winter. Thankfully, this winter has been easier for me. It's been colder than last year, and we've had way... Continue reading

I have a feeling my 365 Project may take 2-3 years to complete, but I am ok with that. Some day all 365 will be complete and I will look back and be happy! This is the latest illustration in the collection that I've added to my shop: #54 Day... Continue reading

Today I'm going to brag on my sister-in-law, Lou, who recently re-opened her etsy shop Messy Heart Studio to sell prints of her work. I just love her happy, messy heart and her happy, messy art. Make sure you check out the rest of her work in her shop and... Continue reading

Beautiful pages Pam! I love looking through your blog :)
Do you have favorite people that you've never met in person? I have a couple, and artist Alisa Burke is definitely one of them. So today, I'm super excited to share about her new accesories line, Heart to Art Remix. She partnered up with Demdaco to create a line of... Continue reading

Hi again. So sorry it's been a little while since I last posted. Moving into a new place is always so time consuming, yet fun at the same time. I'm loving my new studio space, which I (again) promise to share as soon as it's share-worthy. The space is wonderful,... Continue reading

Well hello! I'm currently wrapping up my first work day in my new studio (pictures to come...but not until it's super pretty). I mentioned last week that I've entered the Minted + West Elm challenge, and nows your chance to help out! A selection of prints will be sold in... Continue reading

We are moving this week, so it's a bit upside down here in the studio. But I wanted to share the latest illustrations I've been working on. Lately I've really been excited about the things that have emerged in my sketchbook. This piece was taken from my many hours of... Continue reading

This week's additions to my 365 Project are quite a change from the direction I'd been heading. But I'm just letting myself be free and taking a lot of inspiration from my sketchbook pages. I'm sure I'll go back to more lettering and phrases soon enough, but right now I'm... Continue reading

Finally. I have a website. is up and running! I still have a lot of work to do, but I'm so excited to have checked off one of my 2014 goals in the first month. I really needed a site that was a simple portfolio and I'm quite happy... Continue reading

Well I've been working on something a little different for me in terms of portraits the past couple weeks. I usually prefer to work from my own photos for commissions, however, it's hard to go back in time and capture a little guy when he's a newborn when he's, well,... Continue reading

One of my goals this new year is to be more intentional about my sketchbook time. I really feel like that's where so many ideas are formed and styles are defined. So the past couple weeks, I've been making sure this is part of my daily "work day" and I'm... Continue reading

I've had a Society 6 shop for a couple years with literally nothing in it. But recently I've been playing around with creating some patterns incorporating my floral designs, so I decided to finally update that shop and offer a bit more besides art prints. Here's a peek at what's... Continue reading
