Green Succulent Pattern

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great Easter! We had a lovely day full of good food, Easter egg hunts and family. I recently got this really cute succulent planter from Home Depot and it was a great center piece on my kitchen island. I have been really obsessed with succulents lately. I love that they are all different shapes, colors and sizes. I really like having greenery in my house and it really boosts my mood. I started drawing this pattern of succulents as a doodle and then it turned into a week long project. It is definitely something different than I usually create, but I really enjoyed making it. This print is available in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Portrait of E.B.

Hey everyone! 2 days until Easter! Here is a cute portrait of the Easter Bunny that I created this week. I drew it in Procreate while I had some downtime. I wanted to create a little portrait in a gold frame of Ms. Easter Bunny with some moody wall paper in the background. This piece is definitely a little moody with whole ton of cuteness. I hope everyone has a great Easter! Enjoy!

Spring Easter Chick

Hey everyone! It’s crazy to think that Easter is less than a week away. The weather is beautiful and all the flowers are blooming. It’s shaping up to be a great Easter Sunday. I’m looking forward to a yummy Easter feast, delicious candy and hiding Easter eggs. What’s your favorite part of Easter? Here is a doodle that I drew this past week of this cute chick. I created this fun Spring Easter art in Procreate. Enjoy!

Pastel Easter Eggs

Hi everyone! Spring is finally here. It’s great hearing the birds singing, flowers blooming and the weather warming up. I love it! It’s definitely boosting my mood. We just finished up spring break here in KC. I started looking ahead on the calendar and couldn’t believe that Easter is only 2 weeks away. I feel like it has snuck up on me. Does anyone else feel that way? Here is a quick digital drawing that I did to get into the Easter spirit. My youngest son loves hiding Easter eggs, so I thought I would do a drawing of those. I quite like how they turned out. These colorful eggs are now in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Find Joy in the Ordinary

Hey everyone! It is finally starting to warm up around here. Yay for Spring! I love seeing the flowers starting to emerge from the ground, hearing the birds chirp and being able to open the windows. It’s the little things that make me happy and I am finding joy in them. I love Spring because it just feels like a new start every year. This year especially feels different because of Covid. It feels like there is some hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope the year keeps looking up! This piece was drawn in Procreate and I knew that I wanted to incorporate colorful flowers. I wanted it to scream Spring and it does just that. Enjoy!

Birthday Crocodile

Today is a special day! It is my youngest son’s 6th birthday. I can’t believe he’s 6! He is in Kindergarten and has grown so much this past year. It’s crazy to think I have been not working (except freelance) for 6 years now. How is this possible! Well my youngest son is obsessed with animals, parties, donuts and anything video game related. I wanted to make a cute party croc in honor of his birthday. I created this fun crocodile in Procreate and really love how he turned out. Happy Birthday Goober!

 

Good Thing

Hey everyone! It’s been super cold here in Kansas City this past week. I guess you could say a polar vortex. Yesterday morning was -15. I don’t think its been that cold here the whole 30 years that I have lived here. While scrolling through the web trying to stay warm, I saw a pillow that had this phrase on it. I really loved it and knew that I wanted to make some art with it. One of my favorite things are flowers and thought that it would pair well with the phrase. It definitely screams Spring and I’m so ready for it to be here instead of Winter. I just added it to my shops on prints and products.

Valentine’s Day Dog

Hey everyone! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. How can it be almost February? I was asked to make some cards for Valentine’s Day cards recently for some adorable little girls to give out to relatives and neighbors. The only request is they wanted a cute dog on it. Since I love dogs, this was right up my wheel house. I had so much fun sketching and creating this adorable Valentine’s Day pup for them. I hope their recipients love him too! I drew and colored him in using Procreate. Even though I created him for a client, I have added him to my Society6 and Redbubble shops. He is available on prints, masks, phone cases and home decor.

Geo Color Wheel

Hi everyone! It’s been a little crazy at our house the past week. After all the chaos going on in our nation and having to be under quarantine, I needed to see something colorful. I started doodling and ended up creating this cool geometric color wheel. It looks like a rainbow prism. It’s so bright and cheerful. Plus, it includes all my favorite colors. I hope this brightens everyone’s mood! i just added this to my Society6 and Redbubble shops, if you would like to own a piece of a happy colorful prism. Enjoy!

Best Wishes, Warmest Regards

Hi everyone! We have been doing a lot of binging shows on Netflix this past year. What’s your favorite show? Our favorite show has been hands down Schitt’s Creek. I’ve been wanting to hand letter some phrases from this show. I finally got one completed over the holiday weekend. One of my favorite parts of the show is the friendship and sass between David Rose and Stevie Budd, especially the phrase “Best Wishes, Warmest Regards”. I drew this out in Procreate and decided it needed some Roses and flowers to compliment it. I have put this design up in my shops. Enjoy!

Sunflower Pig

Hey everyone! I’m excited to finally share with you all a really cute drawing that I was commissioned to draw for an amazing girl. I was asked to draw a cute pig with a sunflower crown so they could put it on a cute cup for a lover of pigs. It was so much fun to draw and I love the end result. It is also fun to draw something for a present for someone you know. It makes it even more special. If you need any custom artwork created, send me a message! I love creating custom artwork!

Hello 2021

Bye 2020! Hello 2021! Please don’t suck like last year…pretty please! I hope everyone has a great year a head. I mean we can only go up from here. Thank you to each and everyone of you for following, encouraging and supporting me this past year. Without you all, I don’t what I would have done to keep going. I’m looking forward to bringing you some more new art and keep connecting with all of you. Cheers to a new, better and healthy year!

Christmas Izzy

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! This is our first year with our new puppy, Izzy. It’s been a fun chaotic holiday season so far! It definitely feels like having a toddler in the house again. She loves to nibble on the tree, play with Christmas toys and find crumbs of cookies on the floor. But I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love having a dog in our house. I think there will always be! I drew this little illustration of Izzy when I had some down time. I think it captures her little puppy spirit during this Christmas time. Enjoy!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Hey everyone! There is only 2 days until Christmas! Wow…where has the time gone! The holidays are definitely different this year without seeing loved ones and carrying out family traditions. We have managed to try to keep some traditions alive this season. We are making ginger bread houses, baking and decorating cookies. It’s always fun seeing the boys in decorating cookies each year and how cool their cookies turn out. Definitely my favorite past time. Here is a quick little doodle that I did this past week while being in the Christmas spirit. I did the lettering in Procreate. The best part about doing digital lettering is being able to fix my mistakes. I hope everyone is staying happy and healthy in these strange times. Enjoy!

Peace On Earth Dove

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. I can’t believe there is only 2 weeks until Christmas. Where has the time gone? I think I have all my Christmas shopping wrapped up….thank goodness! Now I just need to focus on activities that will keep my kids busy during their Christmas break in a week. I plan on decorating cookies, building a gingerbread house, reading new books and some other activities. It’s so hard to keep the entertained without being in front of their iPads. Does anyone else struggle with this? I been trying to create breaks in all the Christmas cheer and orders to create new art. I created this cute little gem the other night and am really pleased with how it turned out. I drew it using Procreate and have been trying to practice lettering digitally.  I can’t wait to see it on products in my shops. Enjoy!
