I'm thrilled to finally share a project I've been working on for Chronicle Books since last January. "One Thing At a Time" is guided journal -meant for holding everyday notes, lists, and thoughts. Every page has some sort of illustration or pattern and it even contains a little place-marking ribbon.
The images above are from an advanced copy, but "One Thing At A Time " will be coming soon!
Here's a new 2014 calendar poster - an Etsy exclusive! It's a 13X19 inch poster- the largest print I've ever had available. It features a variety of vases containing the official birth flower of every month.
May-Lily of The Valley
I've also added 2 new Holiday cards from Red Cap. One's a blue glow winter scene, and the other a selection of German blown glass ornaments (a childhood favorite).
Check em' out here.
I'm thrilled to have my praying mantis painting on the cover of "The Widow Tree"- by prize winning Canadian author, Nicole Lundrigan.
Here's a description from the book-
"The Widow Tree is a compelling, richly layered story of fatal plans and silent betrayals in a tightly knit village, where the postwar air is simultaneously flush with hope and weighted with suspicion. Amidst an intricate web of cultural tensions, government control, family bonds, and past mistakes, the truth behind many closely guarded secrets is revealed—with life-altering consequences."
A few of my illustrations, (including 2 of my most popular greeting cards) are now available as prints from Schoolhouse Electric Company. Schoolhouse is a beautifully curated lifestyles and home store located in Portland, OR. To view my artwork on the site and see more from the online store, go here.
Here's a new painting for the upcoming show "Cartographer's Delight" at Hellion Gallery in Portland, OR (opening November 7th). "Cartographer's Delight" features maps from artists around the globe and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. I've done city maps in the past, but for this I decided to channel my inner Libra and do a dreamy astrological map.
I'm so excited to be featured in the 22nd issue of Aritzia's online magazine. The article showcases four greeting card designers, and I'm honored to be mentioned along with Hello Lucky, Quill & Fox, and BerinMade. You can read more about the other designers and check out my interview here.
My paintings for The Enormous Tiny Art Show are finally complete! There are 6 available, all gouache on paper, 5X5 inches framed. I was inspired by Japanese woodblock prints- the delicate lines, simple compositions and large areas of color.
I'm thrilled to be in the show with my best friend Yelena this year, and we will both be at the opening reception. See you there!
