Sometimes ideas for artwork come to me when I’m waking up in the morning while still resting. The flower motif for the my Art Deco style frog design was revealed to me as I was watering plants in our family room. I’ve always believed, to have fresh ideas, one must step away from work and get involved in other enjoyable activities. So, I guess I’ve always liked taking care of plants and flowers.
Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about my process. My current artwork is about nature, whimsy, and geometric shapes. Inspiration is fueled by every day life and art history. More design ideas coming every week! Find me on Spoonflower.com
Thank you Spoonflower for the exposure!

Away from technology, experiencing life through the lens of my camera, is my favorite place to be. Whether it’s a pink reflection on the lake, or orange flower petals reaching for the light, I’m in my happy place. yessssss.

I didn’t know the shape of this succulent plant would be so intoxicating.
I was drawing the angular shaped flowers in my sketch book — when I decided to go to the computer and start a textile design — my next favorite place to be. My heart was beating faster. I used the B&W version for reference to draw an idea in Illustrator.

I’ve been working on a graphic design project, while doing some research about Hawaiian tiki culture. So you might imagine, the sparkling water on a turquoise ocean, the longest white beach ever, and sipping on a fruity drink with a blue umbrella decoration. Sounds divine. This is the first time I’ve designed a Hawaiian theme, and a pattern for fabric. This fabric will be for sale soon on a website near you, so get your favorite tiki cup out for an inspiration. Details to come.
Please feel free to share or message me with any questions.
Enjoy your Summer!
