As you might already know, I’ve been illustrating a children’s book which is why I’ve been so insanely busy lately. The book is about some owls in an enchanted forest, and it teaches kids about money. I’ve been really pleased with my illustrations lately and wanted to share a sneak peek! I can’t really post […]

Only a month until my art goes up in Willow Glen Coffee Shop! In addition to having my paintings up, I’ll also be selling cards and bookmarks that I’ve made from my paintings. I was trying to think of a creative way to display the items available, and I thought of making a painting of […]

I am so excited to be a volunteer for Snail Mail My Email! Snail Mail My Email is a month-long art project, where users can write a message to a friend, email it to Snail Mail My Email, and a volunteer will hand-write the letter and send it out! I’ve been having so much fun […]

My friend Tabatha had a princess-themed birthday party for her two twin girls turning 4. Tabatha asked me to draw Ariel from The Little Mermaid on some paper on the wall (really big, like as tall as me) so that we could play Pin the Tail on the Princess! First I drew Ariel in pencil […]

My friend Karen’s mom, Pam, had a birthday recently. Pam loves the Eiffel Tower and the color blue. Karen suggested that I make a painting similar to my Peaceful Tree painting – a white outlined painting on blue. So I made Pam a 12″x12″ white Eiffel Tower painting with a blue and teal background. I […]

It’s been way too long since I’ve posted, but that’s because I’ve been so busy! I got booked for the month of October, to have my paintings up in Willow Glen Coffee Roasting Company in San Jose! The coffee shop is so cute. It’s very eclectic and colorful. Each chair is painted with a different […]

We started a tradition on my team at work – every Thursday is Nail Polish Thursday, and the girls do their nails. One guy on my team, Scott, kindly allowed me to do whatever I wanted to his toenails! So, I painted them Google Chrome themed! I didn’t use any special brush or anything for […]

Back in January I did a custom painting for a charity auction at work. The winning bidder asked for a painting of a black and white puppy for his daughter’s room. He just sent me a picture of the painting up in the room – so exciting to see it in action! I think the […]

I got this idea in my head of a bunch of woodland creatures standing on top of each other in the forest. I came home from work, ate some dinner, and then started painting at 7pm. I painted non-stop until 12:30am and this is the result. Four woodland creature friends – a red fox, a […]

I finished baby Macy’s paintings today! I’m so excited because this means they’ll be over to my sister’s house on the other side of the continent in time for Macy’s grand entrance into the world :) By the way, it’s kind of hard to tell in the picture because the table is so dark, but […]
