A Few More...

So here are just a few more examples of the cards I will be selling at the upcoming show. Some are for Valentines, others can be bridal/wedding showers and others are just girly/diva cards that can be sent out as thank you notes or for any other reason!

Can't post too long today, have to get back to painting...

xoxo With Love.

Back In Business!

It's been ages since I've posted..I know, I know. Since Mother's Day to be exact. I feel awful about it. I did not in fact, take the summer off. I was working a lot though; mostly at odd contract jobs but the hours were crazy and for the most part I just felt tired and unmotivated! Anyhow, I'm back to Blogging and for sure this time will keep my posts on the regular and have new art up here all the time.

I am in a frenzy right now trying to get ready for an upcoming show. However with printing issues, problems with the mail, and a broken easel, my production has come to almost a halt! This time I was planning on having canvasses, prints and blank note cards for sale/display at the show. But it was a bit ambitious so we'll see where I'm at by Friday. I haven't even rented all the equipment that I need ....

These are some of the cards that I will be selling...what do you think?

Happy Mother's Day!

This is just a really quick post wishing all the wonderful Moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!

Of course an extra big hug and kiss goes out to my own very special Mom. She has always stood by me and supported me through all the drama and I can never thank her enough for all the love she has given me over the years.

I wish we could have spent the day together, but hopefully I can come visit you soon!

xoxo With Love.

Wills and Kate - A Royal Wedding Indeed!

So like most of you I'm sure...I spent the entire day glued to the TV set watching the Royal Wedding and then re-run after re-run to catch the kisses and tender moments over and over. It was definitely London calling...too bad I couldn't answer! I must be starved for some fairy-tale romance...or something!

Regardless, I swore to myself that I wasn't going to hop on the band wagon with the billions of other people and watch the event but that was inevitable. After the first few minutes in the wee early hours of the morning, I was hooked and my only saving grace was that I managed to work on this fun illustration during the boring bits of the show when they panned the crowd!

Enjoy the weekend and too bad its not a bank holiday in North America. Don't you think at least the holiday should be granted to all the Commonwealth??

xoxo With Love.

Ladies with Fancy Handbags!

I've been really busy these past few weeks and in the midst of all the commissions and requests, I had huge computer and cell phone issues that had to be dealt with. Something always seems to be wrong with my computer...I'm never sure when it will start to act up and I will lose all my data.

This is just a fun little illustration that I did for my personal files. I was trying to focus on strong business women with a fun sense of fashion...hopefully that comes through in the art work! I want my illustrations to tell stories but I don't think they are quite there as yet.

It's the long weekend here and although I have to work and the weather is really crappy, it still looks like it's going to be a great Easter.

xoxo With Love.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl-Ring My Bell!

Why did I even mention it in my last post that spring was just around the corner?? As luck would have it, we totally got dumped on overnight with the snow still continually falling! There seems to be no end in sight and its sooo cold. That will be the last time I comment on the weather....

I was cleaning up my hard drive and came across this illustration that I did last year.

Original Photograph by Iddo Goldberg 
I have been following Ashley Madekwe's blog for a while now. She's an actress that I first saw on Secret Diary of a Call Girl a few years back and have loved her style ever since. You can read more about her style tips and other adventures on her blog: Ring My Bell. I am just lovin' those clogs!

That's all for now but will have lots more illustrations in the next little while.

xoxo With Love.

Happy Saturday!

It's so great that spring is just around the corner. I love how the days are already much longer and warmer and there's no more snow in sight!

I'm just going to make this brief and share some stuff that I had worked on a while back. The first is a business card/logo that I was commissioned to do for a business out in Cali. The last two are just some ideas that I was playing around with for my avatars. I just love those little booties. They were my best purchase all year!

xoxo With Love.

Back to Work!

So I'm finally back to blogging and updating my work online. I won't really get into all the crazy goings on of the past few months. I will however say that the hiatus was definitely good for me, especially in terms of my creativity being rekindled and being inspired to illustrate again!

I have been in the process of updating my website but managed to completely mess it up. As of right now, is unavailable! Oh brother! Its going to take a week or so to figure out the code and either fix the little problems or completely create a new site and start from scratch. The latter may actually be the best solution for me. This way I can understand how everything works and don't have to consult a web design team every time I need to make the smallest changes! I also want to add a sort of comic strip feel to the site. I'm thinking of doing an ongoing series...but that's all still in the works.

In the meantime, I am still pluggin' away. I recently completed this piece for a business out in California. Please check out Meg's great photography at Vie : Exposé .

xoxo With Love.
