Studio rearrangment

Working at home can be a great joy, but sometimes spending so many hours in one room makes you want to mix things up a bit. I have collected vintage children's books for years and thought it would be both fun and inspiring to have a kids corner. I put the book display beside an old school desk that I restored recently. Just looking at it brings me back to being little tot. LOVE the indentation in the desk for the pencils.

A leaf within a leaf

I was working out the other day, staring out the window down at the whirling fall leaves on the sidewalk, when I noticed these odd, two toned gems. It's as though one leaf left its mark on another. I ran outside and collected a bunch. I am sure the other members thought I was nuts, but the kid in me came out. I have always been a big fan of autumn and these leaves were inspiring. Hope you like them too! (Note: the colors were much more brilliant, but I left them in my handbag overnight.)

Too cute packaging!

One of my favorite things to do when I can't really travel is to go to Chinatown, Little Italy or somewhere that is filled with new sights, smells and sounds. I love going into markets and looking at the packaging. I came across this box of biscuits recently and feel in love with the design. So cute. and tasty too!

NY Fashion Week

I recently sent out a new promo for my illustration, focused entirely on New York City. I love just 12 miles away from this wonderful city and have become quite the fan. It has an energy unlike any other and I find myself drawn to it more and more. This is a piece about Fashion Week. It was inspired one day while sitting in Bryant Park eating lunch with a friend and watching the tents go up.
