I had FUN with this one!  I love the addition of the pattern in each flower!


Since you mentioned adding leaf and scroll work, I thought I would experiment with this new signature pattern!  I added more bright color in teal and fuchsia.


I went with the gray and aqua palette you mentioned.  The cheetah print is fun and edgy-love it!

The booklet style invitation pictured here.  This client is opting for a removable invitation with booklet pages
for accommodations, directions, map, etc.  I love the monogram only cover!


I gathered some ideas for a classic ivory, sage green and black scheme.  We could replace the winter jasmine pictured below for callas!

Every once in a while I connect with an artist’s creation.  Whether it be a specific placement of a brushstroke or a mindful way a line is drawn – the smallest detail can spark a huge response.  Discovering Betsy Dunlap‘s artful calligraphy style elicited such a response. I was instantly captivated by the energy in her hand-drawn letters – how certain styles simply danced across the page.  Officially introduced to Betsy’s work when the new Brooklyn Bride site was launched, I was hooked and a fan for life.



I discovered this particular style and knew immediately it would be perfect for our renewal save the dates.  I love how the overall composition  and line weight seem to mimic the jagged landscape of my  Zion Canyon illustration.


So thank you Betsy for your artistry.  Thank you for giving us a new perspective on lettering and treating each letter as fresh subject matter inspiring the art you create everyday.  I so look forward to working with you!

I do love the silver  – it adds a lovely neutral contrast to the bold flower!


Love this new painting style!!


I am so happy you sent these inspiration images!  I worked with the “magnolia” and add many lush petals, painted in vibrant shades of coral.  We can infuse more orange if needed.

I am definitely liking the bolder color choices here.  I intensified the artwork a bit as well!


I adore this scene – it is soft and romantic – love it!

I really had fun with the peony!  I made the illustration of Lowndes Grove a bit larger to really take center stage at first impression!

Simple, classic, lovely.


The simplicity is really what makes this design say wow – I think.  I love the added texture the tree free paper gives the look overall.
