Hello!  My watercolor hot air balloon garland will be part of a digital bundle of awesome spring-themed artwork for a few days only starting March 19.  There will be all sorts of printables from other artists, including calendars and gift tags, plus digital artwork, all available in one neat online package (thinking of buying it myself too).  It's going to be a flash sale though-- once it's gone, that's it.  It's a few hundred dollars worth of art for $25, available at starting Saturday!

Huetopia Map Design

At the moment: scrolling through digital artwork and updating my website.  I just realized I have so many maps from when I was working as the wedding map designer with Huetopia Bridal Stationery.  I thought I'd look them up and it turns out Huetopia still has one of my maps up on their website as a sample from three years ago.  I did enjoy making this one :)

Maui No Ka Oi Magazine

Hello, it's been awhile!  I haven't been keeping up with the blog lately in order to focus on some big changes at home.  I'm now in the USA once more, eating lots of Reece's peanut butter cups to make up for lost time!

While I'm spending most of my days chasing around a lovely toddler, I'm still working on personal projects and taking the occasional freelance job.

This one has to be my favorite recent commission: illustrating an article for Maui No Ka Oi Magazine on the do's and don'ts of traveling to the island.  Bright tropical colors are right up my alley and I love Hawai'i, so this was pretty much my dream job.  I hope you like it!  Aloha

Bondi Beach Illustration

And in anticipation of upcoming warmer weather (yay!), I've been in a giddy mood.  At Bondi the other day it felt almost like summer time!

I've added some brightly-coloured Bondi Beach cards and prints to the shop:

Sydney-Themed Watercolour Illustrations

With all the travelling this year, I still often find Sydney to be as charming as when I moved here. Lately that's been coming out in my artwork in a revised style. I'm developing a Sydney-themed series, starting with the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The Harbour Bridge includes the ferry, purple jacaranda blossoms that will be popping up along the suburbs in late spring, and a kookaburra for personality. And what's Sydney without a picnic? We love our parks and beaches! I've added a curious cockatoo and some Aussie wine and cheese a the picnic across from the Sydney Opera House.

You can check them out as prints in the shop here.

I finally sorted through our Tasmania photos yesterday!  It seems to be the most diverse of the Australian states in terms of landscapes and climates.  One minute we were collecting shells on the beach, and the next minute, up in the mountains in the snow!

Savannah Map

I have a new wedding map to share: Savannah has heaps of beautiful and quirky "low country" imagery to draw from, so I was excited to paint this one.  I tried a slightly different style by taking out most of the line work I usually rely on and keeping it light and airy...

Coastal Walk

And speaking of walks, Coogee to Bondi is still fun even in winter.  Can you imagine living next to the water and surfing after work here every day?


I've been in Sydney how many years now, and I still love walking in and around the city.  There's always some new street lane I haven't noticed before, a cafe I haven't tried (and we're definitely foodies here!), or the light just hits the harbour a different way-- makes for good exploring :)
