This is a painted piece with different bits or of bugs, flowers, birds & fruit.  Imagine a walk in the woods- especially this time of year when the shades of green begin to yellow and the shadows grow deeper & linger. 

Next step here will be putting this patter in repeat.

A bright, happy pattern for Friday! It's been a long week of early back to school mornings & late nights juggling a couple different deadlines.  Pattern making is easy & joyful for me so, I thought I'd end the week this way!

Above is the pattern scanned in & put into a lose repeat.... Below is just a cropping of a section of  this pattern.

In art school I had a painting class I loved.  We started by making a large painting & each week the assignment was to cut it down in size cropping it the way we wanted to explore next.  The opportunities felt endless & it was always a surprise to see where it went.

Hope you have a nice weekend with some time to explore a little something out of the norm.

I have a special place in my heart for animals.  My Hello, World! book PETS shows a variety of different pet options that can add a little extra love to your life.  They also require special care & attention so, if you're looking for a pet it's important to factor that into the decision.

Here's me with my pet / studiomate Sophie.  

She's a great companion, a source of silliness & the perfect reason to pop outside every afternoon for a quick walk around the neighborhood.

She also happens to be very photogenic!

Many of us are approaching the start of the school year.  My son (not this little anymore) started 8th grade yesterday. (masked & vaxxed)

This art is from a personalized book I did 10 years ago for I See Me.  You order the book with the recipients name & it’s woven into the story throughout the book.
It's The Very Important Preschooler.  Also know as a V.I.P.!  I know the school year- particularly this one (& the last) has made many of us anxious.  My hope for all the kiddos is a safe year filled with learning & a special sprinkling of fun!

To your own beat!


The top piece is the cut paper starting point for a fabric collection I made a couple years ago for Windham Fabrics. The original still makes me happy.  Music can change my mood in a minute & that's one of my favorite things about it!
