This illustration, titled Chromatic, was created using a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. It was inspired by the repetitive radial designs that are created by spirographs, kaleidoscopes, and other similar things.

Chromatic is currently available for sale in my Society6 shop on a variety of items, including wall clocks, area rugs, and tote bags.

Save The Gay Head Lighthouse

A while back, I donated the use of my "Ocean View of Aquinnah" watercolor painting to the Save The Gay Head Lighthouse campaign.

The historic lighthouse, located in the town of Aquinnah on the island of Martha's Vineyard, is in danger of falling in to the ocean due to the erosion of the clay cliffs. People have been working hard to raise money to move the entire lighthouse to a safer location near the cliffs in Aquinnah. Thanks to the efforts of many, the project continues to move forward!

They have been selling my watercolor painting on mugs as part of their fundraising efforts, and the mugs are now available in their online shop. I receive no money from this, I have freely donated the use of my painting to the lighthouse preservation campaign.

You, too, can help support the campaign by purchasing a mug or making a donation! You can read more about the campaign at their website, and the mugs are available in their Lighthouse Gear shop.

Catching Up and New Art

Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since my last blog post. I've still been busy with art (and with life!), I just haven't had a chance to sit down and post. It's been several busy months since I last posted.

Over the summer, my husband and I packed up our apartment and finally moved in to a house of our very own! It's all been very exciting, and I found myself wondering how we ever fit all of our belongings in to our apartment. The past few months have been a blur of unpacking and working on the house. I've been painting rooms, decorating, organizing, etc., and it has been taking up a lot of my free time. I'm looking at you, walls that are slowly being de-wallpapered. We're just now ending a very looooooooong winter full of snow and sub-zero temperatures (thank you, kind neighbors who helped us dig out our driveway!), and I couldn't be happier to see the return of sunshine and plants.

My full-time job, working as a high school art teacher, started again in September. The school year has been going by so fast - I can't believe that March is almost over! Crazy! Set design for our annual high school musical is underway (it's Grease this year), so my weekends have been taken up by that lately.

In other, more adorable news, back in October my husband and I brought a puppy home! We now have a Welsh Pembroke Corgi named Bilbo and he is so much fun. He has been a wonderful addition to our new home. I post photos of him on Instagram fairly often, so feel free to follow me there if you want to join in the Corgi cuteness.

Bilbo was my inspiration for the illustration that I made for my annual holiday card The illustration is titled Winter Corgi and was made using a combination Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Winter Corgi is available for sale in my Society6 shop. You can purchase prints of this illustration, as well as mugs, throw pillows, tote bags, and more. Stop by the shop to view all of the options.  
Over the next few weeks I plan on getting back in to the swing of sharing artwork on my blog. Don't forget, you can also follow me on Instagram or like my page on Facebook to stay up to date on everything that is going on.
