I love this picture my brother sent me of my niece, Dakota, just waking up from a nap on my dog pillow. Order your dog pillow (or print) from my society6 shop here.

Garden Gnome

I've been collecting cool random plates to make a wall collage and I wanted a gnome plate. I looked at my options online and wasn't too impressed with the selection or prices, so I made one of my own. Garden gnomes make me smile. They remind me of Amelie, travel and kitsch.

My new friend Katie commissioned me to do her portrait. She threw out a lot of ideas and it was a fun challenge combining the elements. Usually people request a true-to-life portrait, but Katie wanted hers to be more whimsical, with huge, dramatic hair--and a dark bohemian look. I was able to use symbolism, colors and movement to portray her personality.
