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,

 This is my beautiful Mama @stephenson4084 . She’s been my rock for my entire life. What I admire most about my mom is the care she gives to her family and friends. She loves fiercely. She also has a pretty great sense of adventure. These are throwback photos from 2018 when we spent a month in Arizona and took a trip to Hawaii. That was, what we call, our ‘highlight’ year. Happy Mother’s Day! #mothersday #lovehersomuch #shesthebest
 In times of stress I find it almost impossible to sit down and create something I’m proud of. I seem to be so critical of my work when I’m stressed and I don’t have the patience to sit and work through it. I’ve found it very difficult to create over these last few months and this pandemic has only made it more difficult. . . Luckily, I have a daily art practice with my kids. We observe, draw and paint almost every topic that interests us. It’s our main way we homeschool, every subject is explored through art. Today we went out for a wildflower walk and found the most beautiful flowers. My kids painted a few of their favorites and when we got back I was inspired to sit down and draw too. It felt good to create something inspired from the awe of spring. . . I hope you’ve found yourself in awe of something lately. If so, tell me, I’d love to hear. . . #spring #orchid #homeschool #observation #renewal #wildflowers #illustration #surfacepattern #surfacepatterndesign #spd
 We had this little visitor last night. We found it partially drowned in the tadpole habitat which was a sad find. A luna moth is a rare sight but aren’t they the most beautiful and majestically creatures. The most vibrant green. . . #lunamoth #rebirth #transformation #morph #change #fly
 We have these beautiful wildflowers that we collected before Easter and they are now transforming into these wonderful seed heads. Bringing nature in and observing it daily has a real way of shifting perspective. Reminding me that everything has its purpose and the cycles of this life must keep spinning. . . I hope your life feels manageable today but if it doesn’t... here’s permission to step back, breathe, and start again. . . #spring #wildflowers #seedhead #cycles #life #yellow #beauty
