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 can’t get this song out of my head. It has been playing on repeat for months. It feels almost like half mantra for now and half song I hope someone remembers to play at my funeral (hopefully 70 years from now). . . It reminds me that we should all go after freedom, curiosity, passion and slow down to really watch it unfold and blossom. Chase the slow meaningful things. “You belong somewhere you feel free.” . . Do you have a favorite song in your head right now? What’s on repeat? . . @tompettyofficial #wildflowers #tompetty #song #music #befree #breathe #slowdown #youbelong #musicheals
 Some of you have been asking me to share interior photos of our airstream so I’ve created a little tour in my stories. Click on over to check it out. . . We aren’t perfect people. Our camper is a total wreck more than it’s clean. We are constantly purging and reorganizing. . . I would like to give a shout out to @dyson for making the most perfect camper vacuum and to @berkey_filters for keeping us with clean water and last but not least to @lego for making me cuss every time I step on one. No matter the house size, my feet always find the legos. . . So far we are still enjoying living in this small space! ❤️ . . #fulltimervfamily #airstream #airstreamtour #cleanhouse #breathe #camperlife #tinyhouse #rvliving
 Life is hard sometimes. For everyone. Some people have a harder time than others. But, across the board everyone has challenges every day. . . I try to be conscious of the fact that the hard times are what shape me. They are what teach me resilience and build my strength. I need to be reminded regularly that on this journey of life, I am where I belong. I’m trying to appreciate the challenges and savor the every day magic. I’m trying not to rush or numb or dismiss. . . Do you feel like you are where you belong? What are you learning in your current challenge? . . #youbelong #breathe #youareenough #challenges #savorlife #appreciatethepresent #bepresent #mindfulness #enjoytheride #illustration #art #draweveryday #everydaycreatives #botanicals #cairne #floral #handlettering
 An evening walk in the woods. A wonderful way to end this day. I’ve spotted elk and a sand hill crane and if I stop moving the mosquitos land on me by the 100s. Are you taking care of your needs today? How do you squeeze it in? . . #awalkinthewoods #natureheals #nature #breathe #calm #reset #forestbathing #mosquitonnets #elk
