On my way to work the other day, I passed by this area on the side of the road that was covered with Queen Anne's Lace. So the other day I decided to go out and stop at every area I lust after on my drive and cut wildflowers from each place. I got enough to make a lovely (free!) arrangement. Those artichoke blossoms are prickly little buggers! Wish I had gloves when I got those.
It all started with this bottom image. I was bored one night, and started playing around with some old ink drawings and then made a wreath out of gouache. For some reason, I had never thought to use something to make a perfect circle instead of just freehanding it. So I used a vase that was nearby and everything changed.

I feel like I am having so many things come up all at once! I am happy to announce that I now have my work available through Juniqe.com. Juniqe is a German-based company and they ship their goods to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden and Finland. I am very excited to be working with them!
I'm partnering with Zoo Atlanta for their Spring/Summer event series Wild on the Rocks. They will have live music, food trucks, cocktails, and a few local artists selling their animal related goods. Tonight's theme is Panda and Pinot. I will be there with prints, postcards, pillow covers, and shirts from 6-8pm. If you are in the area please come out for a fun night! It is also one of the last chances to say goodbye to two lovable pandas Xi Lan and Po before they leave for China!
So pleased to announce that my illustration work will now be at Crafted Westside! Framed and unframed prints are now available. Will be adding shirt in the next week or so. The grand opening celebration will be on Saturday June 7th from 11-8 so if you are in the Atlanta area please drop by! Would love to meet you.
