Build & Imagine !

I'm working on a really great project right now with a start up company called Build & Imagine.  It's a 
super cute construction toy set for girls.  There are so many building sets out that are geared towards boys and really limited things to entice girls to build.

Check out the video and if you would like to see this great product on the market please back it!

Prototype of some story walls!

Coworkers to Hate You" in the Aug. issue.

A.G. Rocks!

One of my favorite clients is American Girl.  I've illustrated many fiction pieces for the magazine over the past few years.  I recently completed my third book for them which I am really excited about.  So thrilled to work along side of some of my favorite illustrators! I love being a part of spreading some
good fun and values to young girls (along with some super cute artwork!).

Thank you A.G!

Hyper-Lush designs

I've been taking Lilla Roger's class "Make Art that Sells".  Its a really fabulous class. I missed
a couple of assignments because of my move to a new place.  Here is what we are working on this week. This is still sort of in progress....

We are doing really rich lush art that can be used on different products like zippered bags etc.  I did
a couple of my own mock ups.  I love fashion and girly things so I took a couple of my girls and added lots of layered vintage imagery.  It was really fun and I think its something that I can do in the future with my illustration work.

Sparkle Spa book series!

Hello.... My life has been crazy lately.  I've been working on some great assignments as well as moving into a new place.

Here are some samples of a cute book series for girl's I've been working on. The girls are sisters who open their own salon (inside of their mother's salon).

These covers are the first two books out of four that will be coming soon! The kindle editions are out and books will be available Feb. 11th.

Going icon crazy!

I'm in the process of taking Lilla Roger's class "Making Art that Sells".  Wow, there are some fantastic
artists taking the course! Here is the piece I did for the first assignment. We were working on a vintage
kitchen theme.  I kept it pretty simple and the color palate down to a minimum.

It would really be nice to know how to put things into a pattern myself...but haven't learned
that yet.
