I was honored to be chosen as one of the featured artists for the 2018 auction! This illustration was used for posters, wine bottles, mugs, t-shirts and note cards!
A quiet heart speaks.......
This heart was for a friend who is discovering who God created her to be. A very beautiful strong authentic woman!
I started a series of heart drains in February. I've had many friends lose loved ones over the last year. Many friends going though really tough times. My husband's mother died in December. I had some illness for 3 weeks that flared up some other health issues. Each one of these drawing have a special meaning. My work has been taking on a more personal meaning. This was heart of hope.
This drawing was for a condo bathroom that is in the city by the river. I wanted to include some of the shapes that were outside in the environment.
Such a sweet dog I got to draw!
A new more abstract series on cycling. More to come!

Final pastel drawing of the sketch I posted on Aug. 5th. Such a rewarding drawing to work on!
I have been drawing poppies for years and I never get tired of their beauty! Sometimes before I start a illustration job I will do a quick drawing to get my creative juices flowing.
Our sweet boy Mingus!
These last two years have been a difficult but rewarding time, as I walk alongside my sister who has terminal metastatic breast cancer. She had it 17 years ago and it came back with a vengeance at the young age of 54. She has been fighting so hard and I am so proud of her. This new drawing is one that I also had in my mind for a while and it is about what it might feel like to go through cancer, knowing the likelihood of survival is so slim. I sat down with some pencils and started drawing quickly on tracing paper. I wonder how it must feel to loose your hair and ultimately everything, and to pray that there comes a time when you are at peace. This image is more illustrative and I can't wait to put it down on paper and add color!
