Flower Child Work

Below is an example of some custom letters I did for a little girls room. I love to match bedding or work with themes to create specific pieces for kids rooms.
The "Flower Child" is my old logo look Ive created a new sign since that is located at Winnie and Tululas in Athens, TX. Which is an awesome antique store! Its a anthropologie meets antique look. My mom and I share a space out there where several of my sketches and portraits hang.

Summer Workshop Drawing

This summer I had the GREAT privilege of taking a workshop from Maureen Killaby, amazing pencil artist located here in Tyler.
I had such a great time going to the workshop every day and ZONING out on drawing. I love my husband and kiddos of course! But getting to spend a whole week drawing 8 hours a day was so relaxing and refreshing ( I'm sure some of you are like, "what?? Sounds awful !").
These photos are of my workshop drawing in progress. Im so excited to use the techniques I learned in her workshop to further my portrait commissions this year.

mural for Cinderbellas I did last year

This was a pretty massive job I did last year for Cinderbellas in Tyler. I designed and created a stencil for the border of the whole store. Spent I forget how many hours tracing the stencil around the border and then painting ( double coated) the whimsical design. I wish I would've taken a photo that would capture just how much border I painted, but I didn't :) I also designed the little monkey on the dressing room door and painted it as well. I had a blast doing this job :) !
