new drawing studies ::

every evening as i finish up painting for the day, i always admire the bare branches on our trees outside while i’m cleaning up my mess-and today i couldn’t stand it anymore. i love the beauty, and tonight i busted out my paper because my hands are itching to draw!! i’m going to do a small drawing series of the calligraphic branch movement and i’m super excited to share it…eventually. nothing to show just yet. I made good progress today though on my blue painting…and hope to have the finished piece up soon!

look at this beauty!! pure joy. loving that i got to see this today too.

meet jane :: my vintage batch of hand- torn, hand-signed cards inspired by my crazy character of a mom i dearly love. elegant, slender, curious, chill, whimsical, and slightly unpredictable. hoping you love them as much as i do!

one of the things i love most is getting a letter from a good friend–or giving one–i love to write and i love to get mail. so born out of that and a need to channel creative thoughts, I began making these cards.  they’re made of the same beautiful Italian paper as my  george cards, and they come with a cream Italian envelope to match. i’ve hand-punched each eyelet and personally created the tiny compositions, and I think these have turned out to be my new favorite…although i still love george.

the dimensions are 4 1/2″ x 6 3/4″  and they’re 5.95 -same as george.

if you’re interested, please contact me //  i would love to share them with you!


we’re finally settled in austin — i absolutely love it.  the morning and evening light is the best. it just spills in…above :: some seedlings — lettuces, kale, lavender and other herbs for our garden that i’m trying to keep alive. my additional responsibility for january and definitely not one of my strengths. trying though… I don’t want to hear David walk in and say, didn’t i used to have 10 seedlings in there? why are there only five?? how could you kill all my tiny, beautiful plants??  like i would know!   they’re headed outside as soon as it gets warmer where i’m hoping nature will help them thrive. cheers to that!

more soon! i have five new paintings going in the studio.
