Last year I was contacted by an amazing woman finishing up work on a documentary called The Playground. It is about the heavy and shocking, but neccesary, topic of the trafficking of children for commercial sexual exploitation. I lent some of my art to the marketing of this film that is debuting this week at the Tribecca Film [...]

First my family was sick, then my computer, yuck. Now (knock on wood) all are on the mend and just in time. I am so excited to share that I am off to NYC later this week! I have a painting at an event that I will tell you more about tomorrow, but needless to [...]

bangs I haven’t had bangs since the days of the vertical, hairspray laden, waterfall bangs (just dated myself didn’t I). edit: just noticed I now have the same haircut as in the print below, hmmmm…..

I’ve finally gotten around to updating my side panel to show the evergrowing list of blogs I enjoy stopping by. Whenever I find a new blog that I love, I get that feeling like when you find the perfect book! That’s how I felt when I saw small magazine just started a new blog. The [...]

I recently figured something out about myself. The more I have on my plate the more inspired I am. This seems so counterintuitive doesn’t it? The more I have to do, the more I want to do! Good though, I suppose. I am getting ready for a couple shows over the next few months (more on those soon!), working on portraits, [...]

Loving these flying books in a childs room over at Cookie. and the little gnome table is pretty fantastic, too. I had seen this guy over at CB2 and thought it might look fun on our front porch.

The new poppytalk handmade market is up with some wonderful items for mother’s day (it’s May 10!). So I thought I’d pick some of my favorites, my own and others, that would make really lovely gifts. There’s still time to order a portrait, if you’d like it by mother’s day please contact me soon and mention [...]

I used to love it when my birthday fell on easter. This year, it’s pretty darn close. We’re keeping both pretty low key this year. Is that a sign that I’m getting old? Anyway, saw these yummy lovelies at bakerella, and think I will take a whirl at them tomorrow. How cute are they?

I just added a few new prints to my shop. True story, my daughter had a friend over a few weeks ago and she saw the campfire piece sitting out: her: “what are those girls doing?” me: “building a campfire” her: “it looks like they’re using a chair” me: “they are” her (to my daughter) [...]

I have been radio silent the last few days enjoying the summerlike weather. It was just too hard to motivate myself to work when it was that glorious out. Now the clouds are back so I am back at it. I am working on some portraits and want to finish up several new pieces I [...]

The portrait sketch print is now available on my website and at my etsy store! We have family coming to town later today for the weekend and they’re bringing some gorgeous weather with them (think sun!). Have a wonderful weekend!

In time for mother’s day or any day. I wanted to share these sweet, simple (and totally affordable) sketch portraits. I hand draw the portrait based on a submitted photo and digitally place it on an old book page (I love the color and texture this adds). They are then printed on gorgeous Hahnemuhle Museum Etching paper. They [...]

The journey journal from cracked desings seems like the perfect little book to fill with pictures, tickets and notes from a trip. I have a fun little trip coming up later this month this would be perfect for…
