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!

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.

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!

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!

White Doodle Pumpkin

Hi everyone! Here is a piece that I drew quite a while a go, but was waiting until closer to Thanksgiving to post it. I felt it would just fit into this week perfectly. I can’t believe there are only a couple days until Thanksgiving. I feel like November has just flown by. I can’t wait until next year so hopefully we can be more social during the holidays. I hope everyone has a socially distanced, safe and happy Thanksgiving this year. I drew this digitally using Procreate. I played around with one of the watercolor brushes and thought it would be cool to see white on a plaid background. I really like the end result. I am hoping to have this in my shops soon!

Autumn Leaf Doodle

Hey everyone! Here is a quick little doodle that I created over the past weekend. You can definitely tell that I have leaves on the brain! It has felt like a never ending battle these past few weeks of picking up leaves. This is weekend #3 of cleaning up our yard. I’m hoping it will be the last since most of the trees around us are pretty bare now. I love fall, but this is probably one of my least favorite things to do. Anyone feel the same way? I’m sure I’m not the only one. Other than that, I feel this doodle totally captures the mood and colors of fall. I just put this doodle leaf pattern on my shops on prints and products.

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!

Fall Pumpkin and Flowers

Hey everyone! The fall weather is in full force this week in Kansas City. And I’m loving it! Here is a drawing that I worked on this past week using Procreate. I discovered a couple of new watercolor brushes and decided to play around with them. To be honest, I haven’t really liked any of the watercolor brushes on the program. I just don’t like the effect that make and doesn’t appear realistic. These new brushes are definitely closer to the effect that I’m wanting to achieve. I was really pleased with the overall look! I will definitely incorporate them into my future drawings. Enjoy!
