Happy (almost) Memorial Day, everyone. Now I realize this illo isn’t exactly patriotic or military-themed, but hey, we all celebrate holidays our own way. I just really wanted to illustrate a fierce woman who knows the power of her own beauty. Anyway, I’m hoping the holiday weekend will give me some more studio time because […]

Hello and hope everyone is having a happy Mother’s Day. I just came back from a lovely brunch with my husband, baby, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and their three kids so I better write this before all the wine I drank kicks in. This here is a photo from the ArtFront Galleries opening on Friday night. […]

Pictured here is one of four prints of mine that are going to be featured in a show at the Waterfront Recreational Center in Newark, NJ, later this week. The show is the second group exhibit organized by Artfront Galleries that I’m participating in and it’s also going to feature some large scale paintings, some […]

Yikes — has it really been six weeks since my last post? I didn’t mean to let that happen. Clearly I have some work to do in balancing studio time with family/work time. I also want to post more even if it’s for updates that don’t involve new illustrations. Because, well, sometimes I have things […]

It was a year ago, March 17, 2014, that fashion designer L’Wren Scott tragically took her own life. As she was one of my favorite designers, I couldn’t see passing by the one-year mark of her death without paying some sort of tribute. So, after finding a photo of her online I thought was especially beautiful, I […]

This post is inspired by some of the most stunning and sleek looks to hit the runway during New York Fashion Week, and that would be Monique Lhuillier’s entire Fall 2015 Ready to Wear collection. I only wish I had time to illustrate each and every piece, because they were all that too-rare combo of […]

In the last post I mentioned how one of my illustrations was getting featured in the annual Gramercy Neighborhood Associates exhibit of work by local artists at the National Arts Club. And I’m happy to say the show went well; over 300 people showed up to the opening on Tuesday. And there was a lot […]

Happy Friday, everyone. It’s been a while since I posted a new illustration so I’m happy to do that now. I actually started working on the sketch for this illo, inspired by lace Dolce and Gabbana dresses, over a month ago, but I didn’t get to paint it until this week, so please forgive that […]

This post is to those living in or near NYC—or anyone who happens to be visiting. If you’re looking to check out some locally produced art, be sure to walk through the Chelsea neighborhood. (in the teens to 20s on the West Side of Manhattan). And if you happen to be in the market for […]

Well, hello there. Been a while since my last post – and I’ve been saying that way too often, I know, but yeesh, this winter’s been flying by. My birthday was earlier this week (Martin Luther King Day) and my daughter Lilith’s first birthday is next week. I can’t believe how quickly her first year […]

New Year’s Day has come and gone, and that means it’s time for a year-in-review post here on this blog o’ mine because… well, that’s what you do. So read on for some highlights from this illustration blog from 2014. This past year was tougher for me to post regularly than it used to be […]

I’d been meaning to post this reindeer card I painted for the holidays since the weekend, but better late than never — I hope. I also admit I still haven’t sent out cards to friends and family members. But this nondenominational illustration of reindeer in the snow had been burning an image in my mind […]
