We had a lovely, informative, inspiring lunch on Saturday with a group of artists of diverse specialties and disciplines.  We had sculptors, painters, teachers, fabric designers, illustrators, fine artists and graphic artists and probably more since most of us are interested in all things creative.  Many of us had never met one another but thanks to our hostess, Lori Mitchell,  the ice was soon broken.  We shared art, ideas and inspiration and in the end all agreed that we need to do this more often.


Lori found some especially beautiful pears at Von’s so we all tried our hand at a little impromptu pear painting during lunch

My husband gave me an iPad for our anniversary and I love it!  I use it for a variety of things but until recently I never thought I would like to use it as another creative tool.

I was waiting for my mother in the waiting room of her Dr.’s office and I started to play around with some of my photos and a sketchbook app.

Here are some of the results….because the photos are so small and the stylus so large, it’s a good exercise to loosen up and loose my perfectionistic tendencies.

Thank you Illustration West judges for the honor of being accepted!Image

I recently completed a postcard to send to prospective clients in the publishing field.  Here it is, front and back, targeted at children’s books.  Thank you for doing such a great job on the printing!
