You belong somewhere you feel free |

I’ve done a few pieces for this client before, like a journal for her wedding and some house illustrations. This one might just be my favorite! She had a baby in January and wanted to hang a Tom Petty quote above the baby’s crib. I also added some whimsical florals along the bottom. Here was

Tori's November Wedding Signage |

Tori reached out to me about wedding signs and was a dream to work with. I love clients that are trusting. The best type of clients know what they want, but give you the freedom to execute it in your style. Tori was just like that. We discussed budget and signage and came up with

2018 Encouragement: January |

Sold: The trailer |

When I started looking more intensely at my small business I bought a camper trailer to renovate into a studio. Slowly (very slowly) it formed into the perfect little home to store all my supplies and work from. I have a series of blog posts you can find about the renovation process here. The press

12 Days of Christmas CARDS |

Technically, I started these Christmas cards last year in December. In a work meeting, I began some doodling in pencil of the 12 Days of Christmas. I brought it home later that night and started playing with spacing and ink. Here are the results of that doodle session. Fast forward to OCTOBER of this year
