Color Me Married: An Illustrator’s Dream Job

Color Me Married: An Illustrator’s Dream Job

When I was around 5 years old, I used to sit for hours at our little kitchen craft table and draw elaborate scenes with ballerinas on stage and queens in a castle. I loved adding intricate details to their glittery shoes, luxuriant hair, and billowing ball gowns. If you asked me what I wanted to do […]

New Illustration: My Life in Coffee

A lot has changed in 15 years! I still love good coffee but I need the jumbo tub of Folgers for my 5am wakeup call.

Family Holiday Cards

Family Holiday Cards

We attempted a family photo shoot for our 2014 holiday cards. Kim Wright from Kim and Kompany was a true pro in capturing the fun and chaos of real life. One of my favorite images is one I like to call “the nose grab” (you will see why) and I decided to place it front and […]

As someone who dabbles in map illustrations for wedding invitations, I can’t even wrap my head around the task of mapping the entire geography of Westeros, the setting for George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones books. This is an interesting behind the scenes look at what it is to create epic maps (literally and […]

FOSSIL Tinspiration

FOSSIL Tinspiration

When I posted about the fun FOSSIL tins that came with the watches that my husband and I bought each other for Christmas 2010, I couldn’t imagine what a fun connection I would make with Coralie Renaud, the manager of the FOSSIL store in downtown Paris. After stumbling on my post, she wrote me a […]

The Fellowship of the Beer

The Fellowship of the Beer

This Christmas my husband and I put our creative minds together and printed nine custom Lord of the Rings beer labels, one for each of the nine members of the Fellowship. It started off being a fun gift for my sister and her husband, but developed into a much bigger project as he altered quotes […]
