Here is one of my large bird prints that will be available at my West Elm pop-up shop on april 17th! (It's also available in a blue color way.) Getting prepared and very excited!
Ive been hard at work - trying to keep up - with #the100DayProject. I hope i can make it to 100. Only 91 more days to go! Ive been expiring collages. My idea was to do 1 8"x8" collage (digital or analog) per day. And while I started putting pressure on myself to make amazing pieces, now I am just trying to have some fun.

Just finished this spring-like piece yesterday for an upcoming kids how-to/art publication which I will have a little mention/blurb in. The author of the book is the fabulously talented Stephanie Corfee. (Visit her site here. This will be her 5th book. Check out her amazing watercolor art, and I love what she sells at DENY designs.)
I was honored and flattered to be asked to participate in the project. Stephanie and I met though an online art course and it turns out we actually live fairly close to one another - which is not typical in these types of international e-courses. (The collaboration and the idea of interacting with artists from all over the globe are 2 reasons why I am becoming addicted to these online courses.)
I'm very excited to share this piece, as its the first (in a while) that I've done that is 95% traditional media. It is acrylic and gouache paint and collage on board. Only a final few minor touches were completed digitally.
I was nervous this piece would turn out differently from my existing work, but it seems to blend in nicely. (At least I think so!) I've actually begun to turn this piece into a collection. Stay tuned on that one...
Another week of joy & fun! I am loving this Making Art that Sells class. I am leaving my comfort zone of vectors + Illustrator and having fun in the process. Here are my plate designs for the latest assignment. (Plate designs for my dream clients: Anthropologie, West Elm and Crate & Barrel.)
The assignment was to be inspired by "odd pods" and seeds. I started with some monoprinting (see post below) and did then a bunch of little pencile and ink drawings and then had a blast playing with them all digitally.
