I love to paint animals & patterns so, this is a mix of two of my favorites.

I like the warm palette & the eclectic mix of characters.  This would be fun as kids bedding.

You make what you feel as an artist then hope you find it a home.  It's a strange way to work.

Sometimes I find it invigorating other times endlessly annoying.  The key is to make art you really like- eventually it turns into something.  A career in art is the long game! (with lots of self discovery)

Sun and the moon


Love those mornings when they're both visible in the sky.

Happy Thanksgiving


Cozy and holed in for Thanksgiving this year.
I’m looking forward to preparing a scaled back feast for three.
Wishing you a peaceful day, a full belly & a moment of gratitude.
So many things to be grateful for.

 It’s what the holiday season is all about.
This little owl was inspired by the Saw-whet owl (about the size of can of soda)
that was found in this years Rockefeller Plaza Christmas tree– hundreds of miles from its home.
He was nursed back to health at a wildlife facility as the long trip left him tired, dehydrated & hungry.
Affectionately nicknamed Rockefeller and feeling much better, he was released back into the wild Saturday.  A promising start to a strange holiday season indeed!
As promised I rested this weekend & am feeling ready to fly myself.

Rest + Recharge


Feeling a little worn out from the last couple of weeks. I imagine we all are.  This is something I painted in my sketchbook a couple weeks ago.  I think it should say "You're really tired" but that's just truthful, not charming. (which is okay)

Planing on taking the weekend to try & recharge.  I've been doing these crazy Peloton Bootcamp classes daily for weeks now, (feeling strong makes me happy) working on a couple new books & feeling like I need to make tons of new art.  Think I need to sit still for a while & chill.  Which is hard for me but, necessary.

Have a good weekend & let's lean into the recharge.  The holidays are around the corner– yikes! Although they'll be distant & different this year I imagine the gist will still be the same.

Transportation Bedding

 Vroom, vroom!  I designed & sold this print almost 4 years ago.  Being a freelance designer you're never really sure when, where, or if your design will hit the retail market.  I was pleased to see my transportation art now available at The Company Store.  As you can tell the background is now bright blue.  It's funny you need to take pride in what you make but, at the same time not get overly attached as things often change.

available in sizes twin, full & queen

This is the original design.

Imaginary getaway


Just in time for the weekend.
Mixing in new flavors, sounds & visuals while staying safe at home.
Wishing on a star that our lives will start to feel more normal soon!

Moving Forward Patchwork


Gosh, I wish I could quilt!
I think I might pull out the sewing machine
& piece some pretty colored fabric
together over the holiday break.
(planing ahead)
