Peter Pan: Book Cover
Peter Pan: Book CoverPeter Pan: Book Cover & Interior Illustration watercolor on paperThis story, these characters, and this world have all been favorites of mine since I was a little girl. And so since I have been illustrating some of my favorite classic book covers recently, I thought I would pay tribute to J.M. Barrie's immortal tale as well.“Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning! ”

Miracle on 34th Street
Miracle on 34th StreetMiracle on 34th Street, watercolor on paper 🎄🎥 There's nothing quite like cozying up to a favorite holiday film, and seeing what feels like an old friend who only comes to visit once a year. I just love Miracle on 34th Street, in its charming and magical black and white cinematography!! 🍬🎅 This is my interpretation of the classic scene at the end of the film where Christmas spririt has finally come into each of their hearts. 
Building Friendships
Building FriendshipsBuilding Friendships   12"x12"  watercolor & ink on paper // One of my favorite things about the winter is being able to sculpt a jolly being from all that snow. These clever kids have thought of all of the right ingredients for making a new friend and bring him to life!
The Valentine
The ValentineTHE VALENTINE: These two young sweethearts are holding hands, the boy in snowshoes is steading the girl on her wobbly ice-skates. She's presenting him with her homemade valentine, and he has a little bouquet of flowers behind his back to surprise her with. 
Happy Trails
Happy TrailsHappy Trails   11"x14"   watercolor and gouache on paper // These two exotic animals have been all over the world and while they wait for their next departure time, in between destinations, the sloth rests his head for a little nap, tired from all of the traveling. Meanwhile the llama is busy reading the newspaper and planning all of their new exciting travels. Clearly she has enough energy for the both of them. It seems fitting to insert an excerpt from my favorite Frank Capra film: "Do you know what the three most exciting sounds in the world are? Anchor chains, airplane motors and train whistles." These two obviously feel the same. 
Friend Ship
