I was so thrilled to work with Emily and Jason on a completely custom watercolor piece for their wedding invitations! After going through a few iterations of the watercolor artwork itself, I was able to create something that perfectly combined the romantic and bohemian styles that the couple wanted to use as inspiration for the event. Rose gold foil and a combination of hand-lettering-style and modern fonts really brought everything together!
The watercolor artwork was then used in other ways, from the postage stamps, to the board for the escort cards, to signage, to a custom frame for their photo booth!
The gorgeous photography was all done by Tim Tab Studios and the pieces were laid out for print and printed by Bella Figura. Please note that neither the save the date nor the map were created or designed by me!
Working with Kelsey and Sam on their wedding invitations was such a fun and special process. I created a one-of-a-kind Southwestern-inspired motif for their invitations, which was then turned into a border for the bottom of the invitation piece as well. We wanted to keep the events card fun, so I hand drew some slightly whimsical icons to accompany the fun weekend events taking place.
The sketch of Camelback Mountain didn’t make it to the final invitation suite, but was an idea I developed for a bellyband piece.
A huge thank you to Steph Wahlig for the beautiful photos that truly capture the essence of the invitations, the wedding, and the couple! The stationery was created in collaboration with the lovely folks at Bella Figura.
When I met Doris, I knew working with her would be a dream. She wanted to incorporate a small, natural element in her invitations, which could then be carried through to other parts of the wedding. I sketched up some options, and the rest was history!
A tremendous thank you to Cory & Jackie Wedding Photographers for the stunning photos of the completed suite! The invitations and Day Of pieces were printed in collaboration with Designers Fine Press.
I was approached by a QA Engineer at Eventbrite and asked to create an informal illustration of the “Iron Triangle” of project management. I used colors that would coordinate well together and icons that were pleasant to look at and worked as symbols of each element of the triangle, all without battling the article for attention!
The illustration was drawn and colored fully in Adobe Illustrator, then combined with text in Adobe InDesign.

The work below is made up of unfinished digital/traditional pieces and “snapshots” from my sketchbook! All were created for personal use and are not part of any client projects.
I have always loved working and experimenting with various forms of traditional media, including watercolor, gouache, acrylics, and pen and ink. Below are some samples of projects I have completed for personal use. Some pieces are scanned and others are photographed, depending on their final size.
Not only do I enjoy using more traditional forms of media for my artwork, I also enjoy creating artwork digitally! All of the work below was completed using a variety of software, including Mischief Pro, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator. I use a Wacom Intuos Pro for all of my digital drawing!
All pieces shown here are in various states of “done-ness”: some are rough drafts, while others might be finished pieces. All are hand-done by yours truly on paper before being digitized and altered in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator!
