Leanne & Josh

Yay for October weddings! This fun, laid back couple live in Colorado and wanted to incorporate their love of  mountains and snowboarding in their illustrated wedding invitations. Their proposal story involves a hot air balloon ride, so that got in there as well.

This was so fun to work on, and it's always an honor to be a tiny part of someone's love story. Congrats, you two, and best wishes!

Julia & Matt

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to create save-the-dates for this adorable couple. Together, they own three pet bunnies that they wanted to include in their portrait.

Their wedding will take place in a gorgeous old English church, but they're also holding a reception in Utah, so they wanted the back of their save-the-date card to highlight these separate events and their different dates and locations.

Later, they decided they'd also like a wedding logo incorporating the initials of their last names (as well as their love of bunnies) that they then made into a stamp for all their wedding stationery.

Julia and Matt also wanted to provide their guests with more detailed maps of how to get from the church to the reception hall in England and how to get from the freeway to the reception center in Utah, including landmarks they'll see along the routes.

Lastly, they used close-ups of the venue illustrations for their reception cards. Here's that gorgeous English church.

All of these were such a pleasure to work on! I love these kinds of projects - unique, personal, brimming with personality, joy, and, of course, bunnies.

For information about my illustrations, feel free to visit my Etsy shop. Thanks for visiting!

Sister Missionaries

I got to do an illustration for this month's Friend, a children's magazine published by the LDS Church. This illustration is
about the 7th Article of Faith, which states: "We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth." The gift of tongues is particularly applicable to missionaries who serve in countries all over the world and in many cases learn to teach the gospel in languages which are foreign to them. (As a former missionary in Hungary, I can testify that this is a thing!)

Happy Walrus

A happy walrus painting: this little commission reminded me of my love for acrylics and inspired me to do my next series in that medium. Fun times ahead!

Woodland Critters

It's been in my head for a while now to paint a series of woodland critters and make them available as prints. Here's what I've come up with so far:

Here are a few that came out that could be part of a secondary, non-woodland series:

And, just for kicks, a couple of outliers that could stand alone or become a series of their own:

They're pretty rough at this stage, but I'd love to hear which are your favorites and why! Feedback welcomed.
