This week in my sketchbook…

Instagram is my favorite place to share. The artist community within Instagram is so inspiring. It’s my happy place! Here’s a round up of this week’s sketchbook inspiration.

It’s been a super inspirational week as I wrapped up this new release. BELOW! AND, I’m working to wrap up another new release for next week, too. Stay tuned. I’m super excited.

Mermaid Wall Art: Reasons to Bloom


I also shared the inspiration for this print. I originally created this mermie on the back of a chinet paper plate. How fun is that! Check out the post:

“I thought it would be fun to share the “original” inspiration for this #mermaidart print. Here’s the plate I painted at the kitchen table that inspired conversation, togetherness and so many memories with my girly twirly. I went on to bring her to life off the plate with my niece Emily in mind. I love sharing stories on how my work “evolves” and I love that SHE got her start…at a kitchen table…just me and my girly twirly talking and painting and creating together. “⠀

Instagram launched a new feature this week where you can upload multiple photos in one post. SWOON! As an artist who likes to share process, this is a super fun feature. Here was my first dabble post to show a quick process in the sketchbook. Holy shizzle it was like 5 am in the morning, so the lighting is bad, too. But, whatevs.

I also shared a little walk-a-bout in the studio. Holy shizzle it’s a mess, so I only showed the pretty parts. Who can relate?

My happy color cart has grown into 3 now! I can’t even tell you how much I love these supply wranglers. I need to do another blog post share on these. Here’s the original blog post about the first cart I bought. I get a lot of pingbacks and traffic from Pinterest on this happy cart. It’s like the happiest thing ever.  The ones pictured below are the Raskog from IKEA. ? They don’t make the turquoise one anymore and it was a sad day when I found that out, but the CREME colored one is just as lovely.

I started to share the new work I’m finishing up. I have a little thing for butterflies. Well documented all over this site and blog, so this piece is taking up some of my heartspace with JOY. Coming this week. Stay tuned!
