I’ve been doing a lot of late nights these days.  Not sure if I’m trying to pump myself up for sleepless baby nights or what but less sleep has been my mantra as of late.  Something about the quiet of the house when you’re the only one awake is sacred in a way, like you are experiencing time that no one else is a part of.  In these wee hours time opens up and slows down.  Thinking takes on a new meaning and my hand craves a brush, pen, marker or whatever will facilitate meditation on paper. {In these late […]

nizuc-wedding-inspiration

So this week friends I’m in sunny Mexico, part work, part play!  This year the conference I attend twice a year named Engage! is being held on the glorious Nizuc Resort Property. {You’ll definitely want to follow along on Instagram for more moments from an out of this world location, near the secluded enclave of Punta Nizuc.} While in Mexico I’ll be sketching my heart out for both books I’m writing this year.  Yes, you heard that right, both books!  I haven’t officially released details about book #2 but more on that later.   If you just can’t wait check out Instagram […]

My hubby and I (Adam) just celebrated our fifteenth anniversary this year.  And yes, friends we are finally “ready” to start our family.  I know, you’re wondering “what in the world took you so long!?”  Well let me tell you.  And before I launch into my story, let me say this, in answer of those wondering why I’m sharing so much on my business blog, […]

pink-peony-watercolor-pattern

I was asked to create a series of artwork by our friends at Snippet and Ink.  Inspired by poignant love quotes I developed five new watercolor patterns to express the words of each poet. {Such an honor to be part of Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink!} Notice I also tried my hand at some hand lettering – really just a fancier version of my handwriting! We’re often asked by couples to help them discover lovely words, quotes, scripture and the like, that express the power of a love story.  It can be difficult to find the right […]

the-greenbrier-artistic-inspiration

The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia was a dream come true.  Just as I imagined, stepping through the doors of the grand entrance was much like stepping back in time.  As An Artist at The Greenbrier I felt like I was walking hallowed halls.  Grand lives had been lived in these spaces and finally I had become a small part of the spirit of The Greenbrier. I literally spent four days walking the property, lingering in every room, peeking into ballrooms and sketching while perched on countless overstuffed, floral print chairs.  I went outside once friends, just once.  […]
