Here is one of my favorite collaborations from 2018. I had the pleasure of working with the lovely Alischa Herrmann, the founding director and designer at Bespoke Letterpress. Bespoke is a letterpress studio all the way in Australia that designs and prints beautiful letterpress and hot foil stationery.
Our collaboration included gold foil stamped greeting cards, gift tags and stickers, double sided gift wrap and a beautiful Christmas tree ornament.

After a short, chilly spring, the days are getting warmer and summer break is finally here. The longer days spent outside while the kids play have inspired me to draw more freely in my sketchbook again, something that I haven't done in a while.
I have been noticing peonies everywhere in the past weeks and I am excited to see the ones I planted last fall in the back yard bloom. I love painting them with their lush petals and pompom centers. So fun and beautiful!
Two new giclée art prints featuring peonies are now available in the shop!
A little peek behind the scenes of one of my latest illustrations, inspired by Romanian folklore motifs and warm summer evenings. I initially started with a pencil sketch then I painted it, scanned it and made a few digital adjustments in order for the image to be perfect for printing.
Materials: Watercolors and gouache paints on Arches, hot pressed watercolor paper, 100% cotton. Original artwork size: 18 x 24 inches.
