Foil-Letterpress-Hand-Painted-Wedding-Invitation

Friends, I adore throwing parties.  Little feels quite as exhilarating as witnessing the fruits of your artistic labors being enjoyed across many experiences and times.  From a WOW invitation being delivered and receiving texts about “how amazing they are” to sitting down to a five course meal carefully orchestrated for exactly the guest list you’ve curated – well it feels just wonderful. Treating people well and treating them to joyful, enriching experience is the stuff of amazing event design… {I don’t profess to be an event designer, although my alter ego may disagree…} I simply find great joy in hosting my […]

I’ve been waiting a long, long time to share this project with the world.  This funny thing happens in the publishing world…it requires patience – something we all don’t have too much of these days, myself sometimes included.   Having your work featured in a print magazine requires an insane amount of patience but as an artist I have to tell you nothing beats seeing your work on the glossy pages of a national magazine.  Experiencing the evolution of an idea from its original spark to full blown professional images is quite the privilege and I am grateful.  We capped […]

Back today with more from my best friend’s wedding shower seen in Bridal Guide Magazine!  There were so many personal touches that turned into moments I will never forget.  From the gold squirrels on each menu to the caricature artist capturing me and Amy’s favorite phrase “Ocean Now”, it was a day that I cherish… Guests were seated at a long banquet style table lined with round balloons and White Anemone floral arrangements.  Pieces from my own collection were added to give the table a bit more personality. To honor the many street artists we enjoyed in Paris, I hired […]

I wrote this post, what seems like forever ago when knee deep in plans for my best friend’s wedding shower last year.  Here we are exactly 1 year later and I’m over the moon to share the whole party as seen in the newest issue of Bridal Guide Magazine, on newsstands today!! Cover This snapshot taken in front of Notre Dame de Paris inspired the entire celebration.  We were young, full of energy and had the world at our feet.    I wanted to recreate the passion and life we felt that day standing in Paris as two feisty teenagers […]
