Whoooaa! Hold on there little mice! Oh the joys of miniature sized adventures.
I’ll be the first to admit I am a member of the “Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve” club. Just like this little wolf and loving motherly owl. So I’m in good company!
Little Red Riding Hood in Winter
Winter nights are magical like fairy tales… Mixed together you have Red Riding Hood and her deer friend.
Here’s to a new year, and to those near and dear, who help us reach our aspirations, goals and dreams!
Happy Twenty Nineteen, everyone!
Little Drummer Boy
A tribute to one of my all time favorite Christmas songs… May we always offer the best of ourselves, and that our gift would be received with warm hearts and gratitude.
“I played my drum for him
Pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for him
Pa rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum
Then he smiled at me
Pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum”
-The Little Drummer Boy
Kindness & Cocoa
This thoughtful little boy is offering a friendly snowman a cup of kindness in the form of hot chocolate. And the snowman is almost considering it, even though it may come with some consequences... it IS hot chocolate after all! And you can hardly refuse such a sweet face.
The Pumpkin Patch
We’re officially rolling out of November into a new month, a colder, whiter one, but still just as lovely. Why hello there, December!
Friends Not Food
These two are hoping that this Thanksgiving you’ll pass the tofu turkey!
Awkward Thanksgiving Dinners
This is going to be awkward… Fortunately for me, I love my Thanksgiving dinners! And there’s never any of that uncomfortable silence these two seem to be having.
So Many Choices watercolor on paper
Sometimes half the fun is the proces. And Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress-up… 2, 3, 4, even 5 times!
Here Comes the Circus watercolor on paper
The best kind of magic is the type we make ourselves.
Happy Together // Commissioned Work:
I had the most fun depicting this sweet gal & her beau as their favorite animal: The Collie.
(A fun note: That lovely Lassie (sorry couldn’t help myself!) is wearing a designer dress from the most adorable fashion line of prairie dresses by Batsheva Hay recently featured in Vogue, The Guardian & The New Yorker)
Also here are their two donkey friends, Frances & Damascus. They most certainly are, Happy Together!
Ice Cream Social
The fun keeps rolling when an elephant on a bicycle is serving up your favorite sweet treat!
It's hard to stay afloat after so many snacks and tropical punches (he's Bearly Floating as it is!) But this bear is doing it, and making a big splash into the holiday weekend!
He hopes you're enjoying the last bits of summer too!
Treats for Tricks watercolor on paper
Busy about new circus tricks, who needs a "Flea Circus" when you have your own beetle?
I See the Moon watercolor on paper
Stargazing is her favorite hobby.
Paper Moon watercolor on paper
'It is only a paper moon
Hanging over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me...' -Nat King Cole, It's Only a Paper Moon
Peter Pan: Book Cover & Interior Illustration watercolor on paper
This 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! ”
Mother Goose: Little Bo Peep watercolor on paper
She may have lost them in the past, but this Little Bo Peep is full of gumption and confidence, and sure of herself; she's keeping a close eye on her flock. Friends stick together after all.
Friend Ship watercolor on paper
Even when sailing through stormy weather and rough waters, the Friend Ship holds fast and strong!
