Joshua Tree





giant granite boulders create a surreal backdrop for the various plant life, while thousands of Joshua trees dot the land as far as you can see.


cacti are at once spare yet full of personality. fragile, yet durable.  each unique in shape and proportion. I cannot get enough of them!

This weekend I've been reflecting back on the past year and where I was this time last April, both in my life and with my art.  I took a weekend trip to Joshua Tree that filled me with awe and set me down a slightly divergent path style-wise with my work, one that I've been quietly exploring. Here a few of my favorite pics and illustrations from those travels, inspired by the dusty, washed out colors of the California desert.

I'm honored to be among the artists/makers taking part in this special event here in Austin next weekend!  Feliz is a 3 day celebration of handmade organized by Abby Powell and Natalie Davis. The event starts with a meet and greet Friday Nov 2nd at West Elm, followed by an amazing day of workshops Saturday, ending with a sale at the Palm Door on Sunday. There's a few days left to sign up for a class, so if you're in town take a peek and see what fun you could add to your Saturday (I cannot wait to learn some shibori dying techniques in the indigo dye workshop!)  + I hope you can stop by Sunday to say hello!

It's been a long time since I've done illustrations with people in my personal work, something that use to be central to the art I was making.  I love the surface design I've been doing the past few years, but it was time to take a break and branch out.  This week I did!

Bright, fun, girly....right up my alley.  I couldn't have been more in my element creating this collection for Target back to school.  I was excited to see that the joy that went into making the art comes through in the product sitting on the shelves.  Vibrant colors always hit the spot for me!

I wanted to share a little more of the new branding I illustrated as I see it appearing on the shelves. I love the bright colors! I'm looking forward to the one last scent to arrive.
