Cupid Restraining Mars

I came across an old sketch by Guercino (circa 1640) and it inspired this little ditty for Valentine's Day. :) 




Land Ho!

My agency (The CAT Agency) is celebrating 25 years of doing business (!!!) and so for our quarterly postcard mailer, we were given the theme of "Celebration". I came up with a storm-tossed captain and his crew spotting land - definitely a reason to celebrate!  Dedicated to Chris and Christy, who have bravely weathered all the children's book industry storms :)

The Magic Harp

I recently went on a tour of Ireland - a long time bucket list item has finally been checked off! It was a very inspiring trip to say the least. I wish I was Irish!

My favorite sights were the Cliffs of Moher and the Killarney National forest, where we spotted a red buck! These two things, along with a few stories that our tour guide shared, inspired me to come up with two new illustrations.

Summer in the City

Summertime is a great time to catch up on personal projects that get put on the back-burner, and luckily for me, I was able to create an image that also served as a promotional postcard for The CAT Agency, who represents my work. This image was inspired by a trip to Miami to see the Wynwood Wall murals.



River Days

One of my favorite places on the planet is "the last best place" - Montana. I've visited my friends there several times over the past few years to go hiking, camping, rock climbing, hunting, etc. And so I was thrilled to get a featured illustration assignment from a local MT magazine called Outside Bozeman. The had me illustrate a story about fly fishing and here's how it turned out! Check out their summer 2018 issue to read the whole thing ;)

Friends Forever

I just finished this digital painting for a promotional postcard mailer. It was inspired by my trip to Florence after visiting the creepy-cool San Miniatio cemetery. It's titled "Friends Forever". Enjoy!


Grit and Grace

I'm so excited to announce that Grit and Grace: Heroic Women of the Bible is published and available! I just got my gratis copies in the mail yesterday and it turned out beautifully :)
This book is so inspiring for girls and women alike! Hope you pick up a copy and enjoy.
