Most of my day was spent in a puddle of baby slobber. It’s my favorite. But I also changed 6,000 diapers and finished this pretty girl. It’s been a hot minute since I had a unicorn order! This was so fun and I can tell how the pet portraits are positively affecting my overall painting style. Much love to you guys! #unicorn #unicornpainting #magical #watercolorart #mamaartist
I really like using “ampersand” as an adjective to describe women, especially mothers, who are pursuing their passions as they raise their little ones. I think it is important that we lift up others who are trying to balance the two. My dear friend @jessicaness is an incredible “ampersand mother”! Here is what she wrote about this season of life:


• “I’m choosing to lean into the belief that my passions and dreams were given to me for a reason. That being the best ME and best MOM that I can be means loving my family AND loving myself enough to honor my heart. ❤️ I don’t ascribe to the belief that part of you has to die or be ignored in order to raise a little human. Sacrifices have to be made, sure. Choices and priorities are set, absolutely. Maybe little humans are your sole passion (amazing!) But I want my son to see what a woman brave enough to chase her calling despite how hard it is looks like so he will honor the strength of ALL women. 👸🏼 Let us be the examples of who we’re raising them to be. Listen to your heart. What is it saying? Do that.”

Removing the tape from the edges of my paper projects is one of the most satisfying steps of the process. #weirdthrills 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Was in a thankful/giving mood when I got home from work, so I made a little something for a good friend--because sometimes it's nice to show some love.

Since this child gave me whatever germs she collected I am putting her to work tonight. I'm going to bed.

My copy of @brush_magazine Issue 3: Nature arrived this weekend + I’m feeling both grateful and kind of shocked to see my painting (inspired by a Christopher Paolini quote) in print. 🌊🙏🏻 When was the last time you took a risk + put yourself out there? You know I’m cheering you on... ✨ #brushmagazine #blurbbooks #artistsoninstagram

When I started college I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was attracted to the “helping careers” so I signed up as a Social Welfare major. It wasn’t too long before I realized that it wasn’t what I had imagined it would be. It was also during that time that I recognized I was coming home at the end of every day and sketching with oil pastels. Of course I knew I was doing this, but the moment it dawned on me was kind of a personal revelation. It was then that I decided I should probably change my major. 💡🎨
.

I did change to a Fine Arts major, but life took me instead into motherhood, and I never quite finished that degree. Sometimes it’s hard to admit, because I worry people will think less of me because I don’t have that crispy college diploma. When I think about it for myself though, I wouldn’t change the way I did anything. I don’t feel any sense of loss over not finishing my Bachelor’s degree, because I know I was living my life exactly as I was meant to during that time. And God help me, I hope I never have to go back to school for anything! 😂. Just not my bag, baby.
.
So here I am instead. Happy as a clam in my own little life, pursuing art again in bits and pieces and fitting it in wherever I can... like snapping pics of crazy vibrant plants and saving them for color inspiration. 😏😏

Does this resonate with anyone? What are your thoughts when you look back in retrospect? (Whether it’s 2 years or 20!)

I spent the whole weekend watching a 1, 2, 3, and 4 year old and deep cleaning my art room. As productive as it was, I missed painting and couldn't wait to finish my peonies this morning! I'm loving this somewhat "looser" style 🌸❤️💮

When my kids were born, I started creating all these animal characters. I didn’t really have a plan for them, it just gave me an opportunity to play with my kids and my art at the same time. The day I started making patterns with them, something inside me really clicked. I love fitting the pieces together, moving things around, and watching how the patterns emerge.
Here’s a couple of my play swatches, turned them into cards. ♥️

five hearts gang. testing. testing 1-2-3.

I'm being called to create, and I feel like sharing! I've always had the urge and often find myself creating various things, from jewelry, to clothing and wall art. This is my attempt to share my journey, in life, and with making. I'm currently exploring watercolor and feeling pretty obsessed with it!

five hearts gang represents my inspiration. My family is composed of five hearts! I'm a mama to three little hearts, and wife to a papa heart. This is a photo of the hearts that we used to make valentines.

I would love to have others to tag along with me on this journey. Thanks for reading. 🖤 #loveandlight

Got out my collage supplies this morning and Margaret made her first art journal.

Good morning, sunshine! ☀️ It’s not a sunny morning here, but I hear the birds singing and that’s good enough for me 😉
