Off to Scotland

This week I am traveling to Scotland for my sister’s wedding. It’s been 13 years since I studied art and design in the U.K., and ever since then I’ve longed for a return visit. Unfortunately though, I was never able to make it north to “Bonnie Scotland” as they say, so this is going to be a new adventure!

I’ve had the privilege of illustrating several extraordinary Scottish destinations during my time working with Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report, one of the leading luxury travel publications in the world. But now I will have the pleasure of seeing this lovely country in person. And as a huge fan of the show, Outlander, I admit I’m more than a little excited.

I’m packing my pens and pencils and I’m looking forward to sharing my sketches from Scotland with you over the next couple weeks. And who knows, perhaps a few will turn into new fine art prints or be included in an upcoming collection or two? I can’t wait to be inspired by the country my sister has fallen in love with and chooses to call home!

Print of the Week: Stuart the Squirrel

Stuart the Squirrel

This week’s Print of the Week is the second in a new series. Stuart the Squirrel is part of my upcoming Woodland Wonder collection of art prints, patterns, and decor featuring forest animals, plants, and trees in a more feminine theme.

As I was researching ideas for a new children’s collection, I noticed that it seems like most forest/woodland artwork and patterns tend to be for boys. So I wanted to create a soft color palette that embraced nature but also said, “girls like to play outside too!”

The Stuart the Squirrel print is made from my original acrylic painting and will brighten any space. Each piece is printed on acid-free, high quality art paper with a matte finish. This fine art print along with its companion print, Olivia the Owl can be purchased in the following sizes: 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, and 13×19.

If you would like to commission art featuring your own subject matter, please contact me and I can create a custom piece just for you.

Print of the Week: Olivia the Owl

Olivia the Owl

This week I have a fun, new children’s print to share for my Print of the Week. Olivia the Owl is part of my upcoming Woodland Wonder collection of art prints, patterns, and decor featuring forest animals, plants, and trees in a more feminine theme.

As I was researching ideas for a new children’s collection, I noticed that it seems like most forest/woodland artwork and patterns tend to be for boys. So I wanted to create a soft color palette that embraced nature but also said, “girls like to play outside too!” My daughter, Olivia, was all to happy to name the first little character after herself.

The Olivia the Owl print is made from my original acrylic painting and will brighten any space. Each piece is printed on acid-free, high quality art paper with a matte finish. This fine art print can be purchased in the following sizes: 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, and 13×19.
