Dreams & Things

I've had some pretty vivid dreams lately. Two of these include my cat running away, and another where I found a secret cave inside my tooth. Weird. I think my dreams get weirder and more vivid when I'm cold and/or stressed. In college I based my senior project on weird dreams I was having at the time. Perhaps I need to brush up on symbols and meanings within dreams; I'm pretty fascinated with this stuff. 

In other news, the holidays are coming up and I'll be visiting my sweet city of OKC soon. I'll keep most items available in the shop during my vacay, including these little original watercolors from my 366 Sketchbook project. Most of the pieces from this series is sold out, but I have a handful left! 

And of course, you can find prints and other things in my shop. Hope you all have a lovely holiday! I've been enjoying them so far in Austin, and I'm excited to continue celebrating in my hometown (OKC) soon. 

Secret's Out

So some of you know I've been working on a little secret project for the past few months, and I'm happy to say the secret is finally out… (drumroll)... my shop will now carry prints + originals + now, JEWELRY! I loved working with metal jewelry several years ago in college and it has been a goal of mine to get back into it. I literally had pages upon pages of necklace ideas in my sketchbook (and still do) so it was time to get my jewelry saw out and start up again (FYI my hands were incredibly sore the first few days). 


My first collection, Zodiac, represents a sleek geometric design of the zodiac constellations. I think we all know how much I love constellations at this point ;). Each necklace is made of raw brass and hung on a delicate antique brass chain. Every piece is uniquely handcut and one of a kind. <3

The Zodiac collection is now available in my shop. I'm doing a few moon jewelry pieces next as well as working on some Victorian house paintings. Back to the studio! <3

Insta-Love: Life lately, according to Instagram

Some snapshots from my iPhone from the past few weeks.  Lately I've been obsessed with painting constellations and sleeping animals, although this is an ongoing obsession.  

The sun has also been out and it feels lovely, especially through my studio windows.  I could do without the insane Galveston humidity… you walk outside and it's like being in a sauna. Ugh.

My plants have been blooming (and dying).  I'll need to make another trip to Tom's Thumb. I'm in the mood for succulents this time around. 

If you haven't been watching the news, there was a tornado that hit my hometown, Oklahoma City on May 20.  It was really hard to watch the news without getting emotional.  Luckily all my friends and family were safe, but others were not so lucky.  Donate to if you can!  Wishing everyone there a speedy recovery.
