I illustrate and create for the quirky and curious soul who delights in whimsical fun patterns inspired by adventure, travel and home.

 

 

I have been creating for years and it always feels like I’m coming home. It’s that sweet spot where I feel energized and alive and I can’t wait to see how inspiration and creativity move through me. It’s always a surprise and I think that’s my favorite part. It’s curiosity that motivates me and creating that propels me.

I hope that you’ll find inspiration to follow your own curiosity here. I’m so happy you’ve stopped by.

I hope to see you soon,

 I’ve always loved this. While I don’t think I will ever arrive at the space of ‘fully grown up’, along this journey I do strive for authenticity and I see so many of you out there doing the same. Thank you for showing us who you really are. You are beautiful and worthy just as you are. ❤️ . . #eecummings #authenticity #bewhoyouare #authentic #love #breathe #youareenough #youdoyou #illdome #courage #bravery #art #handlettering #arteveryday #everydaycrestives #botanical #leaves #neutral
 Today we went to the #buckleyoldengineshow out in Buckley, MI. This giant old engine festival was started by my husbands grandfather and grandfather’s brother back in the 1970’s. I can’t imagine them thinking that it would grow to the size it is today. Insanely huge. . . We rode on a stream train, saw an old engine parade with tractors and cars from their very first models, and all sorts of other machines and engines at work. It’s one of my boys favorite things to do. . . We were also very excited to see our PatPat hard at work making shingles on a super old shingle mill powered by a farmall tractor.  . . #tractor #oldengineshow #steamtrain #buckleymi #michigan #puremichigan #kidslovetrains #kidsloveengines #kidsloveanythingthatgoes #kidsontrains @suebuchan
 One of my favorite writers is Walt Whitman. Something about the way he writes about nature and self really resonates with me. One of my favorite phrases for pondering is, “Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself.” . . As I age I’m realizing just how multifaceted and contradictory a life is. For instance, I’m an introvert who has chosen to spend all day every day with my children which is like being at a constant party, I’m an environmentalist who uses way more plastic than I would like, I’m a local food movement enthusiast who orders food online cause I’m tired. I’m a homebody who lives in a camper. This is a list that could go on forever. . . I notice how easy it is for us have an opinion or thought about how others are contradictory; calling them names like liar, lazy, flaky and such. I wonder if we all made a list of our contradictions if we’d then have a bit more compassion for others. . . How are you living a contradictory life? I know we all are and that’s ok! ❤️❤️ . . #waltwhitman #contradiction #compassion #love #loveyourneighbor #inspiration #abstract #art #illustration #illustratorsofinstagram #womenwhodraw #arteveryday #everydaycreatives #create
