San Diego!

If you know me, you know I am a fan of animals. Recently, on a trip to San Diego, my husband and I toured Sea World, San Diego Zoo, and the San Diego Safari Park. I think we trekked over 15 miles in three days, seeing all we could. We went to the beach too—to take photos, watch surfers, and listen to the ocean. It was an incredible trip and I hope to visit again. By far, the animals were our favorite part and I took hundreds of photos. I always do when I travel. You never know when you’re going to use them for reference!

This illustration is my ode to our trip to San Diego. I will have prints available soon in the shop!

Moving on up to the Third Floor

I am excited to announce that I have moved my office to a new location in Pocatello! My new studio/gallery space is located in the Kane Building (specifically 315 W Center Street, Suite 307). This historical building is the perfect location to house creative thinking! And I am stoked to have a place where customers can pop by to pick up stickers, prints, or to have a chat. Pop by if you’re in the area. I am usually here, but will keep regular hours M-Th.

In the evenings I like to unwind and paint while I watch, or rather, listen to television. It usually never involves anything I am working on at the time. It’s a sort of meditation to take my brain down a notch. I think it helps me sleep (if I’m not up until 2 am).

A couple of my friends mentioned Penny Dreadful to me after my last Eva Green portrait. I decided to start re-watching the series. There was so much I forgot! I did my best to capture her in all her ‘Vanessa Ives” glory. What is your favorite Eva Green character? 🎨☠️😁

Miss Peregrine, 2018

One of my favorite actresses is Eva Green. She has such a unique look and can transform into some of the most unusual and eclectic characters. Miss Peregrine is a character from the film “Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children,” based on the book of the same name by Ransom Riggs. Like all Tim Burton films the characters come alive. This portrait is an ode to Eva Green’s Miss Peregrine.



The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Recently I have been exploring some new portrait techniques I learned. I decided to create a little series based on the characters from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix. This edgy series pushes the boundaries in an interesting way. I can say I was hooked from the first episode. It helps when you have such a winning cast. Have you watched this series yet?

The portraits I have completed to date are of Aunt Hilda (Lucy Davis) and Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka).
