Holiday Trees Pattern Bundle

I didn’t expect to be immersed in patterns again, but I’m having so much fun recoloring existing ones. I began to see this modern tree pattern as one that would be great for Christmas and New Year designs. So I gave it new life with three bright color palettes for the holidays. The bundle contains […]

100 Days of Pillows (32-36)

It was a great week creatively-speaking. I feel like something has clicked in the past couple of weeks and my work is getting better. I can now look back at some of my earlier pillow designs in this project and see where I was struggling to find my way. While I didn’t have a set […]

100 Days of Pillows (17-21)

This week I leaned toward modern prints. It wasn’t something I set out to do beforehand, but a session in my sketchbook last weekend resulted in a lot of the geometric and modern motifs you see in these patterns. The fun part is always arranging, coloring (and re-coloring) and seeing how the final design differs […]

100 Days of Pillows (12-16)

Lesson learned: I favor patterns that have breathing space. But if they are fairly busy, including neutrals is required to give the […]

100 Days of Pillows (7-11)

11% complete with the 100 Days of Pillows project! It’s fun to see how, in most cases, one design naturally leads to the next. Colors used one day get repeated the next, or a floral print results in another floral print, or dots on one design lead to dots on the next. The concept for […]

Gratitude Journal

For 15 years of my adult life I had the same journal. That tells you how often I wrote it in. When I read the old entries from my early 20’s, and there aren’t that many, it’s obvious I was searching. Searching for purpose. Searching for answers to hard questions. There was a 7-year gap […]

Patterns and Butterflies

Patterns and butterflies. Not necessarily butterflies in a pattern, but the butterflies I’ve felt in my stomach as I continue making art and know I’m going in the right direction. 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. […]
