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 want to check in with all of you. How the heck are you doing during this wild time? I know for myself there is a magnificently complicated range of emotions going on each day. I’m a feeler, I feel it all. I thought I was doing pretty well aside from having a little extra stress but I woke up today gripped by fear. It was startling. I took some immediate action to reduce those feelings and am a bit better now. . . I’m trying so hard to move fear and grief out of my body. It’s not easy but it’s essential for me during this time. Things that are helping: exercise, journaling, meditation, sunshine, playing with the kids, music and art... also stress cleaning my space.  . . I’m trying my best to create ease and joy in the midst of this challenge. I’ve totally scrapped formal homeschooling for now and we are just unschooling through this time to reduce stress. I’m also cooking the most simple meals I can. All of this to preserve energy. The extra energy is needed for me to move through this tense time. . . Tell me what is holding you together right now. ❤️ I’m rooting for you and I want to hear all of the ways you are coping. . . #stayhome #pandemic #fear #ease #love #breathe #create #findpeace #watercolor #violet #art #quarantineart #spring
 Sometimes the right thing to do is throw the tent in the truck and head to an island for some camping. It’s a wild time right now and I hope you all are staying healthy and hopeful. . . #camping #islandlife #southcarolina #homeschool #wildschool #worldschiol #edistoisland #childhoodunplugged
 Movement is the building block to creating ease and space in my brain. As a homeschooling / stay at home mom, it’s not easy for me to be motivated to get movement in as much as I would like. Since the @riveternc opened a few weeks ago it has been a beacon to help me find my way back to more movement. I’m so grateful to @elizjackander for having this vision and creating a space that inspires and motivates. Being on a rope again has filled my bucket in ways I had forgotten was possible.  by @christmas_katiev . . #constantlyevolving #getstrong #challengeyourself #asheville #828isgreat #wnc #brevardnc #imaworkinprogress #ladieswhocrush #climbing #rockclimbinggym
 I’m pretty sure there is nothing better than watching the snow fall when it wasn’t even in the forecast. These are huge flakes and it just keeps falling! The boys are having a blast. . . #grateful #snow #homeschool #hooray #breathe #snowpocolypse
