You want to pay me to do what?

So I’m kind of in total shock…… do you want to know why?…

Lately, people have been wanting to PAY ME to paint stuff (stuff being my highly unprofessional word for portraits and commissions)!!! I knew this is what I wanted to do, but I still can’t believe that it is actually happening, people want MY artwork hanging in their home… and what’s even more crazy then that? they want me to paint their children, the most beautiful amazing special part of any mother and fathers’ life. I feel so blessed at this moment in my life that I am able to do what I love and triple blessed that others like it as well! I am so thankful for everything happening in my world, first a move to Colorado (it’s like the most beautiful place ever), then the whole being payed to do what you love thing…. I am overwhelmed with joy and a whole new responsibility. I wanted to share with you all a few of the things I have been working on as of late, some paid and some not. Enjoy… oh and notice that new page at the top, go there and order custom paintings, or to order prints of previous illustrations, I would love to create something for you!

The Concrete Catwalk


This is an illustration I did a while back of the lovely Jessie Artigue from The Concrete Catwalk. I love love love her style and am always inspired by her color and pattern combinations! This beachy pic was perfect for watercolor, and I had a blast doing it!

Below is the original photograph, isn’t she just lovely?! if you haven’t checked out her blog, I encourage you to go go go see the wonderfulness!!! she also has an aaaahmazing vintage store called style & pepper (cute name right?!?).

Do you have a favorite fashion blog?! I would love to here from all of you about where you go for styling inspiration!!
