Thunderstorm brewing, and baby napping = work time for me! Making progress on some new illustrations! More to come!
Photo-retouching before and after images for interior design website. I had so much fun digitally upholstering furniture! More to come!
Fun little illustration I found while cleaning out my art space last night. I think in 2005, I envisioned my life to look something like this!
One of my most memorable experiences was traveling to Italy the summer of 2011 for graduate school. I painted all over northern Italy that summer. This painting was inspired by the beautiful hilltop village of Corciano. In an exhibit held by the Academy of Arts at the end of the semester it was chosen as the Mayors favorite piece!
I created this illustration the summer of 2008. This illustration made me realize how much I enjoy texture and pattern which lead me to a series of fashion illustrations I created that summer.

I was given advice from a Professor this past year about ways to overcome an Artist's "Creative Rut". There are always days when you struggle to create and you find yourself frustrated and NOT having fun. I found this to happen to me while finishing up my final thesis for graduate school. It was suggested to put aside whatever I was working on and just make art for "fun". This entailed making whatever I wanted and using whatever materials I wanted to use. I have found by doing this, it makes you go back into your actual work with a clear mind and with a more positive outlook. This piece below is a good example of "fun" art that I created in the midst of grad school chaos!
