Sweet Rest

I’ve heard it said that as an entrepreneur, when your “why” meets your passion, magic happens. You find the fuel to implement your ideas, commit to your projects and push through the difficult parts. Your business flourishes. Yes, I believe when the two intersect it is a powerful thing. But I also believe it’s not […]

Clarity

I met a friend for a run at the trail today. I enjoy the time I spend with her as we get moving, soak up the sun and fresh air, catch up on personal life and talk art and business. She’s a creative person as well so it’s great to share thoughts with her and […]

Ink on Paper

This may seem like an obvious choice, but can you believe that as someone who likes to draw, I’ve never used a professional, artist-grade ink pen? I’ve used Sharpies, standard ball point pens, graphite pencils, colored pencils, charcoal, markers and pastel, but never just a simple artist ink pen. I realized the need when I […]

Art Update

There have been quite a few positive changes recently in the way that I work and in the artwork I’ve been creating. I have a new sense of direction that has been slowly building from all of my past artistic experiences combined. So while I can’t exactly see how and where things will end up, […]

Since my last post I’ve been consistently trading off between watercolor art and more modern, graphic art with saturated color. I’m leaning toward one vs. […]

Pouring Out and Filling Up

Every artist experiences bountiful seasons of creativity and dry seasons when good ideas seem elusive. Sometimes in the desert, your heart tells you it’s time to create but instead, you find an excuse to do anything but make art. I didn’t use to believe in this concept called “artist’s block”, but I’ve experienced it enough […]

Stretching

The first day of spring is four days away and this season always makes me want to draw and paint. It’s one of the few constants in my creative journey. So, I’ve been thinking a lot about the direction of my artwork. Since making the decision to work entirely online, it’s given me the freedom […]

Simplifying Drawing

Did you know that as a general rule, you have to know how to draw from life (i.e. keep it real!) in order to make simple, authentic drawings? It sounds counter-intuitive, but if an artwork looks simple to draw, it probably isn’t quite so simple. For four weeks, I’ve been drawing almost daily. It’s noteworthy, […]
