A mini painting and study painting by me along with one of my favorite product designs I’ve ever worked on for Natural Life.
I’ve been falling back love with painting, and here is a recent experiment. I’m not sure what this color is. It’s not quite mauve or persimmon, but I love it.
Currently a work in progress, I hope soon to take this project from the digital planning stages to a larger scale painting than I’m used to (yikes!). I’ve been thinking about this project for a while now, and it seems like the right time to push myself. Stay tuned!
One of my favorite mini paintings yet plus a bonus of flower doodles and one of the coolest gifts I’ve ever gotten - an antique book of Lancelot and Eleanor that’s the same size as a mini painting! Maybe this one will be the first print in my shop…
Suns for Sundays. That’s all!
Sometimes you just have to paint without expectations or a real plan…
I had the privilege to design the invitations for my beautiful friend, Chelsea's wedding. She has the most gorgeous and fun style and the cutest concept for her invitation incorporating her puppy and luna moths. I had so much fun working on the front illustrations and getting back to my architecture roots sketching the venue on the back! #loveyoutotheluna
A just-for-fun post for Mother’s Day. I love my mom.
A while ago, I started an Instagram collection for encouraging posts and videos that I wanted to come back to later. I called the collection Yes Girl, Yes. This was inspired by that collection, and by all of the phenomenal people who are encouraging others every day.
This project is something very important to me since my dad died from lung cancer. I just want to show what a gift every breath is and encourage people in a positive way to stop smoking.
Some happy lettering for Easter Sunday.
Lettering for my home state.
I love to run. I feel like myself when I can travel as far as my feet can take me as fast as they can take me.
The Trinity Rescue Mission serves homeless men, women and children in Downtown Jacksonville, Florida. They are a phenomenal group of people who hold an annual 5k to raise money for the mission, and I had the honor of making a logo for that event.
This was a fun project for my family. Each year for the past two years (this year was my first, but not theirs), my family has run in the First Coast Parkinson's 5K. I mean, first, the run goes right by one of my favorite local coffee shops, but it's also for one of my favorite people, my stepdad who everyone calls Poppy. So I made this design for our shirts so everyone know's who we're running for.
For this week in Lauren Hom's #HOMwork challenge, the theme went along with Lauren's Daily Dishonesty project where she lettered the things we all tell ourselves and each other even though we know they aren't true.
I chose the lie I tell myself the most often by far - especially on Sunday evenings when I should be prepping for Monday. Instead I tell myself I'll pack my lunch, iron my clothes, send that email and wash my hair in the morning. Never happens.
This was inspired by a King's Kaleidoscope lyric meaning that nothing we experience - even the hurtful or bad is wasted. We can learn from anything, and it can make us better.
My first post that will be a series to welcome each new season. There's only one here now, but stay tuned. I'll be keeping it up!
For the 7th week of #HOMwork we lettered our heroes and what they mean to us. I chose my mom because she is the most incredible, supportive, patient and kind person I have ever known.
This week in Lauren Hom's #HOMwork challenge, the brief was to make ourselves an award for something that we're pretty unlikely to get an actual award for. I chose to award myself for (almost) always managing to hedge my bets and wait until that thing I really want but can't afford at full price goes on clearance. With great power, comes great responsibility.
These are my digital entries for Lauren Hom’s #HOMwork Challenge. I would say it’s the most fun I’ve ever had doing a challenge, but so far it’s my only challenge. So I’m probably not qualified to say that. It is so much fun though.
I began this challenge in my sketchbook. It is still my favorite and least practical way of doing anything final (not actual sketching, because obviously that is incredibly practical and important), but changed over to digital midway when I came to that realization.
Week 16 - “On a ROLL” Favorite foods as puns.
Week 14 - “None of the Feels” Just your typical positive quote turned inside out to be just a little bit less positive.
Week 12 - “Take Me Back to That Place” Places that we love.
Week 10 - “Does That Say What?” Words that are a little gross, and very unexpected.
