For some reason I want to call this “Pretty Weird” which is more or less my style of art. Pretty things and weird things mixed together unconsciously. Welcome to my brain :)

She’s like an ornamental doll head… I really love drawing these lacy floral mandalas. They are relaxing to draw. Patterns are as well. I try to freehand them because those are my true lines. When I ink pencil sketches, I like to make lines I think look nice permanent and also adjust lines so they are balanced. I’ve been trying to find my own patterns that I can draw without guidance.

Color suggestions? Or should this be black and white?


Current themes: hair, eyes, hands, eyes in hands, weird accessories, bows, more hair, loops, swirls, asymmetrical symmetry, lines, hidden images, gems, stars, curved shapes.

I am getting impatient with painting. My hands hurt too much. It is easier to work on a bigger scale these days.

"Space of Bust" was sketched in minutes during a bout of manic frustration with the world a few weeks back. The weird portrait I drew today, honestly not sure where it’s going, but exploring that is the fun part.

Things are looking up.



Always arting! I’ve been thinking of challenging myself to do some sequential stuff. I want to do something inspired by dreams in the witch house, but modern day and with a girl… I think I live in a witch house. It’s a typical New England three story home. It’s old, creaky and has odd angled walls everywhere.


I am slowly adding depth to these watercolor postcards. Worked on them for a few hours tonight.

I have not posted here about this, but a few of my fashion illustrations/designs were published in a college textbook  in 2013 along with MANY of my Mass Art classmates. We were in a few of the author’s Mass Art classes together in 2003-2006. Joanne taught me a great many things and I have always respected her for the support and encouragement she always gave us.

One of my classmates stopped by to see me at Art Walk in the Park and told her friend that I always made her excited to come into that class. I would do marker demonstrations for my classmates back then. I just love to color.

I took photos of the book and I’m sharing some of the illustrations as well! This is a nod to my very humble beginnings. I can’t believe I’ve come so far in the past 10 years and I feel that looking back really shows that I have grown as an artist. One day I hope to redraw these designs and explore them more.

I like taking photos of busy bees. I use them as reference when drawing though I’ve gotten pretty good at drawing them freehand.


I’ve been an amateur nature photographer my whole life. My first camera was a red and black Polaroid. My parents upgraded me every couple of years (or I would get the hand me down point and shoot when they got a new one.) I document my surroundings, my adventures. I like to make sure I capture moments so I can go back because I do forget where I’ve been.

Nature is also a continual source of inspiration to me. I feel so tiny sometimes because we are at the mercy of this big, beautiful ball of life.

This is my (almost) mother-in-law’s garden. It’s truly a fairy land. Very serene and there is a lot of critter activity going on.

The kitty is Baby Girl. She lives outside in a heated little house. When I met this cat, her entire back was matted. I’ve been very slowly making progress on that over the past couple of years. Everytime we went over, I would find some scissors and snip a matte or two off. I got them ALL off this year and she has been extremely sociable this summer! I think I’m a cat whisperer.


I love hanging out with my pets. They are very funny creatures. I swear this dog has a human soul trapped inside of her… Quiggly just loves to watch whatever we are doing.

Our kitchen/living/dining room got some Halloweeny touches. They will probably stay up until we move, hahaha! My studio space is so nice. I feel like it’s an incubator for all of my creative endeavors.
