I’ve been working on save the date ideas for my wedding next year.
I plan on having them giclee printed at a local fine art printer.
These are just some brainstorming ideas, I feel like the pink is a little too pink.
I’m also practicing my calligraphy with some vintage nibs I picked up,
heres hoping I’ll be skilled enough to address the envelopes!

Not only did my boyfriend, Graham and I recently get engaged, but 4 of our dearest couple friends also got engaged this Summer! It’s the summer of LOVE :) I wanted to send them all a little Congratulations card so I painted the appropriate word and sent them on their way. Let the wedding planning begin!

Three brand new prints I created just for fun!
These are all hand painted by me, then I scan the artwork and
create a seamless pattern in photoshop. If you are wondering how
to make a seamless pattern, check out the Pattern People e-book.
Happy Friday everyone!

A new Free People print I created is now up for sale on the website.
This is probably one of my favorite prints I have created so far.
PS - the bralette in the last photo is my print too. I’ll post it another time :)

Hey guys, sorry for the radio silence. I recently got a new job in NYC and moved up there 3 weeks ago, living in temporary housing (aka my parents place). My fiance and I just found a sweet apartment in Williamsburg Brooklyn, and we are super excited to move in and get settled there! Once my desk and computer are all set up, I promise to share lots more art, prints and calligraphy.
Until then, I leave you with some of my latest prints I worked on at Free People. The first two are original prints, the last one was vintage that I re-colored. Hope you like!

I painted this little greeting card for a friend
who recently got married. I mixed gouache
and watercolor inks to create some custom
colors. I loved the consistency of the paint,
so I plan to experiment more with this mix.
Happy accidents are the best :)
Two of my original designs are now available for
purchase on minted.com. Minted really has a great
selection of unique and customizable stationery.
I am always so impressed with all
of the talented designers on there!

A couple new floral prints I created.
I love this time of year, mother nature
provides the most beautiful inspiration.
Hope you are all having a lovely day!

Today I’m been working on an idea I had last night. I wanted to combine my tiny watercolor floral paintings and my calligraphy togethor, to create orginal typographic artwork for cards and greetings. The bottom image with the white background is the original artwork I painted. I then scanned in the painting (my scanner is not the best unfortunately) and adjusted the colors in Photoshop. I think this is one idea that executed better in my mind than on paper. I’ll keep working on it, but what do you guys think?

This tote bag is one of my favorite designs I’ve created for Free People. When you shop at a Free People store they give you one of these cute reusable totes as a shopping bag to hold your purchase. I created this bird artwork by cutting paper and scanning into Photoshop. You can find it in stores now!

This is a little Save the Date I painted recently. I was inspired by this beautiful arrangement created by a new florist in Philadelphia, Sullivan & Owen. Their floral designs are so dreamy and romantic, I’m in love!
