My latest digital illustration…

Hi all! How are you? I’ve been a bit of a slacker lately and my poor blog got pushed aside while I enjoyed a visit from my family, learned some new Photoshop tricks and loved on my baby girl. The rain has come in full force to beautiful Portland so days hunkered down in my studio with Claire in my arms, has become the norm. Rain always makes me want to sip tea and get creative so that’s what I did. Here is my latest digital illustration…you can also find it in my Society6 shop.

I really enjoyed using a chalk like brush and hand coloring the elements in this design. The power of Photoshop never ceases to amaze me.

Hope you are having a creative Fall! Have a fabulous Halloween tomorrow!

My Society6 Shop is now Open!

Hello friends,

How have your Fall been so far? Portland has been delivering absolutely gorgeous, sun filled, Autumn days – but I know the rain is coming soon. We have been trying to make the most of this lovely weather by taking long walks, visiting with neighbors and of course, I’ve been sneaking in a few photo shoots. Fall has brought forth a surge of creativity in me and I finally decided to open up a Society6 shop, where I can sell my digital art and photography. Here are a few of my latest pieces…

Guess I have been inspired by roses lately!

I invite you to come visit the shop and hope you enjoy my work. Thank you for all your love, support and encouragement. You all inspire me to keep creating!

What Katie Ate Cookbook

Hello there. How was your weekend? Hope it was lovely.

I love starting the morning off with some inspiration, especially a Monday morning. So, I thought I would share with you my latest Amazon purchase –

I have been following Katie’s blog for a little over a year now and her gorgeous food styling is nothing short of genius. Layered with texture, color and an amazing vintage flair her images take my breath away. I couldn’t resist pre-ordering her book. It should arrive on my doorstep mid October! Yah! I have had no time for cooking lately but I will happily drool over all the stunning photos…

See what I’m talking about? Crazy beautiful right?! Her compositions are works of still life magic. Oh, and you must check out this sweet video that show’s Katie in action…

There is nothing more inspiring than witnessing an artist at work – creating with authentic passion and intention!

Have a happy Monday!
