Today I wanted to share my latest wedding invitation designs. I absolutely love working with brides to create one of a kind invitation suites that are hand painted, hand lettered, and as unique as each couple getting hitched! A wedding is such a special event to share with family and... Continue reading

This past week I've been trying to "play". There are a lot of things I've been wanting to explore as an artist/illustrator/designer, but finding the time can be tough. So, I carved out a chunk this week to explore pattern/surface design. And oh my goodness, I started having so much... Continue reading

I had a great time painting these newlyweds, Meghan and Drew. I've known Meghan's family since I was born, and I just adore them. This portrait was a wedding present from Meghan's younger sister Katie, and I'm so happy I was able to be a part of the surprise! Congrats... Continue reading

Ahhhh, summer summer summer. I just love it so. I've had a little more time lately to work in my sketchbook (a two week vacation will give you that time!) and it's been fun getting lost in my world of color and floral doodling... Here's a glimpse at what I've... Continue reading

I'm back from a lovely almost-2-week vacation, and although I've been busy getting caught up with custom orders, I squeezed out some time this weekend to add another illustration to my 365 Project collection. This print is available in my etsy shop as either a 5" x 7" or 8"... Continue reading

A few months ago, my brother in law (owner and roaster at Wells Coffee Co.) suggested I look into selling my work on Scoutmob. Because they curate their collection of goods, and because I wasn't in the mood to apply for something and be rejected, I just said, "Yeah, maybe...I'll... Continue reading

Everytime I work with Design Aglow, I say "Man, I love working with Design Aglow". So here I am again, saying the same thing. One reason I love working with this company is because of how amazing they showcase my work on their products. Seriously, they look so stinkin cool!... Continue reading

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

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

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

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
