Sleeping Beauty

Finished at last! Sleeping Beauty has been a 7 month project this year. The final print is 12 colors and contains more detail than I have ever achieved before now in the woodblock printing process. I am so excited to finally share these months of work.

Logo Designs

Trying out new styles and designs!

Christmas Card Design

This card was designed for a company called Eureka Tools as part of a contest. Even though my card was not selected, I wanted to share because it was a lot of fun for me to experiment with design, shape, and texture.

Just in time for Halloween! I carved and printed these signs and then hand painted in the yellow and purple when the outlines dried. It has been good practice learning how to carve letters backwards.

Strawberry Wine Label

I just completed this painting for a client in Pennsylvania this week! He makes strawberry wine and needed an image to put on the label. This job was so much fun and the client was really awesome to work with!!

Little Boy Blue

Note - Print Exchange

This print was completed for a print exchange. I was one of 24 people to complete this project and send it to the East Coast. When the project is complete, 24 portfolios will be assembled and sent back to all of us. Then we will each have one of each other's prints! I can't wait to get mine in the mail! The word of the year this year was "Note" :)

Chalk Art Dabbles

I am branching out again and trying something new! I found out that they sell large pieces of chalkboard material at Home Depot and I could not resist buying a few to try my hand at chalk pastels. Recently, I signed up for the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival (which takes place this coming Saturday from 10-5) so I figured that now was a great time to try out this new medium.

IF - Rescue

I have been searching for the direction to take my children's illustrations for over a year now. It is really exciting to be able to say that I have found it! This is it! I am so excited to tackle the rest of my portfolio and steam ahead full speed. Thank you to all who have been supporting me as I search and learn. I could not have done it without you. :)

Digital Print Trial

Hi! So I am running a trial...I have been reluctant to produce digital re-prints of my work. I really want to emphasize the value of my hand-pulled woodblock prints. However, I also want my art to be affordable so I have had these 4 images reproduced and I am putting them up for sale on here and Facebook. The prints are each 8x10 and I am selling them for $25 each. If anyone is interested, please email me at

Father's Day

This is the card I am planning on sending to my dad for his special day :). I still have to make the envelope for it because its a little bit too big for any regular sized envelope. Looking forward to making crafty things!!

Art Shows and Prints

May has been full of local art shows. This is my first year doing these and so far they have been awesome! I have met some wonderful, talented people and I have had great support from my friends and family. Thank you to everyone, especially Moses! 

This is the latest woodblock print. One of the first prints that I ever created was an abstract version of Sleeping Beauty. Now that I have had more experience with the printmaking process, I felt that it was time to revisit that fairy tale. Stay tuned for more on the process :)

Free Thinker

These are the latest prints pulled! There are 21 total, 7 of each color variation. I had an idea to use pattern as both part of the background and part of the character. I am really excited by the outcome! 

"Free Thinker" will be available to purchase for the first time this weekend at the art show in Mountain View. Come and see me!

Wind Up Doll

This is how I have felt for the last two weeks. I need to have the key in my back turned so that I can spring back to life and keep on making art!

Fadeaway Girl Study

This is a gouache study for a woodblock print I am thinking of creating. I have hung it on the wall in my apartment so that I can look at it over the next few days and make a decision.
