Enjoy Each Day

Every Christmas, I receive a nice hand-written card from my aunt who lives in California. This year, she signed the card, “Enjoy each day.” I thought it was a simple and beautiful message, and I wanted to keep it as an everyday reminder. However, I knew the card would inevitably get lost in the sea of correspondence I’ve been saving since high school. So, I photographed her handwriting, blew it up, and created this print. Look, Aunt Mary Pat, you’re an artist!

I also entered this print into the Three Cheers! Minted x West Elm’s 3rd Art Challenge. So if you want to see it for sale at West Elm, click here to vote. And as always, thank you!


Very First Fabric

I’m excited to announce the launch of my very first fabric on Minted. It is called Journey Together and it features a repeating pattern of tandem bikes. It was designed to accompany the Journey Together wedding invitation I designed for Minted a while back. The fabric comes in ten colorways, including 2015’s color of the year, Marsala. I hope you like!

“Love is all around” and “Traveler’s Compass” Art Prints

Happy New Year, everyone!

I recently returned from eleven days in Australia. It was an amazing getaway. And honestly, it couldn’t have come at a better time. A time when admittedly, I’m a little confused about life, love, and oh how the list goes on…

On my trip, I met many interesting travelers. In fact, I spent a night at sea with 23 of them on the SV Whitehaven sailboat. They came from Germany, England, France, Sweden, etc. It was a great group and by the end of our journey to and from Whitehaven Beach, we all became quite good friends. And our boat started to feel like home.

There, on a boat in the middle of the ocean, I felt at home. This experience, and the many new people I met (some who are traveling for years at a time), inspired me to create the print series below. Reminders that love doesn’t have to be defined by marriage or babies. And home doesn’t have to be defined by a house with four windows and a door. Love is all around us. And home is wherever we make it.

Creative and Inspiring Friends

Incredibly creative and inspiring friends. That’s just one of the many things I feel thankful for this Thanksgiving season.

But unfortunately for me, one of mine just moved all the way across the country. I’m sad for the city of Philadelphia, but I’m super happy for her and her new adventure. LA is lucky to have her.

And lucky for me, she asked me to create two prints for her new place. It’s an honor to know that my work is hanging in her home 2,725 miles away.
