La Mer + Yellena: Holiday Collection

Last year in fall I had the privilege to work with an amazing La Mer team to develop the illustrations for their Holiday Collection. The products are finally in stores and I couldn’t be happier with the results. They are beautifully made with such attention to detail and quality. The design contains sea flora, kelp pods and abstract coral elements. La Mer’s passion and respect for the sea, for discovery, and the quality of their creations are truly inspirational. To see the whole gift collection please visit their website.

Put a Bird in It

I’m happy to have been a part of the “Put a Bird in it” event again this year.  WeMake invited artists & designers to make birdhouses, which were auctioned off to raise funds for arts and music programs in Portland.  The birdhouses that came in were absolutely amazing and you can see all of them here.  

Andrew made the birdhouse out of birch, and I decorated it with a wood-burning tool. The whole process was so fun and challenging.  WeMake even did a little interview with me about it, which can be found here

Welcome to my new blog!

I finally have a new blog and I’m very excited to start blogging again.  I’m planning to post more often about my new work, projects, inspirations and adventures.  I’ve been busy working on illustration jobs and gallery shows and I look forward to sharing them with you.  

Here is the drawing I did for a group show called ‘Neufolk’ curated by talented Max Kauffman at the Lequivive Gallery in Oakland last month.  This piece has already sold but I’m working on new originals these days so stay tuned.
