In 2020, I began to draw a lot more. I’d always loved drawing and had taken on commissions here and there, but the pandemic had a great way of keeping us inside finding creative ways to occupy time during evenings and weekends. And with all the craziness in the world, art was also a great way to express how I felt. So I began to draw whenever I could. And the more I shared via Instagram, the more people seemed to become interested. Eventually, they even began reaching out for commissions and asking how to buy my work. It became clear I needed to update my web site. And as fortune would have it, I came across Cody McBurnett of Loki Loki. Cody immediately understood what I envisioned for my site and brand. Fast forward to today, and I couldn’t be happier with the result!
We structured the site with two main sections: My custom illustrations page outlines the process of commissioning custom pieces from me, and now I have a full-fledged shop offering my available original pieces, prints and note cards.
I hope you find the site to be a useful tool as well as a source of inspiration, as my art and offerings continue to evolve and grow. And please keep an eye on my Instagram, where I’ll continue posting behind-the-scenes photos and videos of my work. I know many of you know me as the full-time Texas editor for Luxe Interiors + Design—now I am so happy to share what I love doing after hours. If I learned anything during the pandemic, it’s how much I love drawing. Why not just go for it!
