Sketches from Scotland

Scottish SketchesWell I’m back from my trip to Scotland! I finished going through my sketches and thousands (yes, literally thousands) of pictures and I wanted to share a few with you. I was in awe of the detailed architecture (including a few Outlander sites) as well as the breathtaking scenery. My sister couldn’t have chosen a lovelier place for her wedding. From the rolling hills in the Highlands, which are often dotted with sheep and highland cattle (also known as “hairy coo” because of their abundant coats); to the haunting Gothic, sandstone buildings of Edinburgh; to the stubborn, hardy, lavender thistles that are determined to add beauty to the most rugged surroundings, I don’t think there is anywhere on earth quite like this place. My next collection will feature Scottish patterns and prints inspired by my travels.

Print of the Week: Seattle Skyline

Seattle Skyline

This week’s Print of the Week features the Seattle Skyline. I’ve been a fan of the city since the t.v. show Frasier (incidentally I also have a Jack Russell Terrier named Eddie.)

In addition to being the birthplace of Starbucks, another one of my favorite things, Seattle’s scenery is breathtaking. It’s skyscrapers including the famous Space Needle, are set against the picturesque backdrop of Mt. Rainier.

The Seattle Skyline print is made from my original pen and ink drawing, and 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.

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: Heceta Head Lighthouse

Heceta Head Lighthouse

There’s just something distinctly American about lighthouses. It’s true that while lighthouses have been in existence all over the world since ancient times, we’ve adopted their clean, coastal simplicity that has become synonymous with the classic American nautical style. This week’s Print of the Week is Heceta Head Lighthouse, located in the town of Yachats on the Central Oregon Coast.

Rumor has it that this particular lighthouse, which was built around 1894, is the most photographed lighthouse in North America. It looks out over a cliff above the Pacific Ocean, and is still in operation today.

The Heceta Head Lighthouse print is made from my original pen and ink drawing, and 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.
