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: The Hummingbird

Hummingbird

One of my favorite birds was the inspiration for this week’s Print of the Week. The hummingbird is such an incredible little creature. We have a hummingbird feeder outside of our kitchen window and my kids and I love watching them. My son, who is probably the biggest animal enthusiast I know, tells me that they can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and upside down. They flap their wings in a figure eight motion when they want to hover. Who knew??

The Hummingbird 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: St. Barts Island

St Barts Island

To start off the warm-weather season, (my apologies to those of you who live where it’s still snowing!) I thought something from the Caribbean was in order. This week’s Print of the Week is St. Barts Island, located in the French West Indies.

Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, the island was later settled by the French. Today it is an exclusive, luxury destination with its pristine scenery and near perfect weather.

The St. Barts Island 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.
