100 Years Loved

Hey everyone! I know, it’s been a while since I have posted anything new. It has been a crazy summer of swimming, playing, traveling, seeing friends and family. One of our trips this past summer was to La Crosse, Wisconsin to celebrate my husband’s grandma’s 99 1/2 birthday. Her 100th birthday will be this January, but we wanted everyone to be able to celebrate with her over the summer at her half birthday. It was such a beautiful day with family and friends. I was asked to design the save the date and invitation. I knew I wanted it to be all about her and very colorful. She still has a lot of spunk and is such a wonderful a lady. So I drew many colorful flowers to frame a beautiful picture of her and paired it with the phrase 100 years loved I found on the internet. I felt that it fit her perfectly! I hope you enjoy this as much I as I did creating it.

Hi everyone! Here is a new piece of artwork I created for my youngest son Jaxon’s birthday. He turns 7 today. I can’t believe how fast time has flown. I created this cute piece of cake using procreate and used my hand lettering as the font. It was really fun to create and can’t wait to celebrate Jaxon today! 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!

 

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!

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!

Navy Leaf Kaleidoscope

Hey all! Fall is in full swing here in KC. We spent a good portion of our weekend enjoying how nice it is and raking up all of the leaves. The temps have been abnormally high in the 70’s but that is not stopping all the trees from dumping their leaves on our lawn. The boys had a lot of fun raking the leaves into piles and jumping in them. Izzy our dog even had fun with the leaf piles. This is a really cool leaf kaleidoscope pattern that I created recently. What started out as a random doodle turned into a really cool pattern. I am really enjoying this color combination and how it screams fall. I just put this up in my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products. Enjoy!

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season

Hey everyone! What is the first thing you think of when fall arrives? Pumpkin spice everything, of course! That is one of the things that I look forward during Fall. I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I do love pumpkin flavored desserts. Every Thanksgiving, I make a pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting. I look forward to it every year! Even my brother, the pastry chef, requests me to make it. So I thought I would celebrate this wonderful flavor season with a drawing. I wanted to keep it pretty simple and classic. I think this would look great as wall art and home decor. I will definitely have to add it to my shops!
