The Magic Humpback

This painting was something I envisioned. I wanted to embody the majestic, gentle nature of these giant whales while also bringing some magic wonderment into it with gold ink. It reminds me of a twinkling night sky.

The Majestic Humpback

This painting came after The Magic Humpback. Something about the freedom of its breach makes me feel like its part of a mystical world where it can just exist, unencumbered by its surroundings.

Evening Sunset

You may not know but this is actually a very small 3″x3″ painting. The pink and purple sky of a gorgeous sunset in the mountains awaits the viewer. I haven’t decided whether or not to put this one for sale. I’m in love.

Bullet Journal

I've been keeping a bullet journal to keep me accountable to creating regularly. It sucks getting lost in the busy of day to day and realize your soul is drained because you haven't filled it with what you love.

Stickers

Creating stickers for my bullet journal as well as many other uses has been awesome. I'm continuing to explore the design process and have made my stickers available in my shop.

Custom Envelopes

I've been experimenting with custom envelopes for both sending in the mail and for use in bullet journaling. I have both mini and A2 sized. The minis are perfect to put in my kids' lunches!

Handlettering

Over the last 6 months or so, I've learned how to handletter. I've continued to explore that and love using it on both my instagram and on my stickers.

Card Design

After everything went on with Declan, I decided to hand-make cards to send to everyone. I truly enjoyed the use of watercolor, stamping, and embossing during that process. I had done these things before, but putting it together for greeting cards has been very rewarding.
