This is Elise. She’s one of the smartest, stylish & sassiest women you’ll ever get the pleasure of meeting. She also has one of the most entertaining blogs I’ve seen in a long time- Dressopotamia. Buckle up for a wild ride through her closet of vintage, poppy, mod dresses that any gal would be jealous of! Not to mention her insightful and amusing analysis of print & pattern & fit. And just like I do with my paintings, Elise has a witty name for each one of her dresses- how can you not love that? She’s a total fashion riot, so of course I had to paint her in one of her amazing frocks! So go check her out. Now. You won’t be disappointed. In fact, you’ll probably spend the rest of your day reading about her awesome technicolor dream of a closet! xoxo

I had such a fun time at the Lion’esque Media/Yelp Giftacular earlier this December. I sketched pretty much non-stop for eight hours since the place was jam-packed with shoppers! I can write a small novel about it, but Brandon over at Would You Rock This? did an amazing recap featuring lots of pictures & illustrations. Check it out here and stay tuned for more live- sketching events! xoxo
I recently had a fun job working on a logo for Vous Valet- a new high-end vintage shop in lovely Vancouver, British Columbia. The art direction was specific & concise…aka easy peasy…the owner wanted a sweet Audrey Hepburn-esque girl in a black vintage dress, posed in front of the Eiffel Tower with her cute little Pom by her side. Her hands are formed into two V’s – for the victory of finding an awesome frock at Vous Valet! The store’s grand opening is December 20th- just in time to pick up some last minute holiday goodies! You can check out the soon-to-be updated website here! Happy Shopping! xoxo
A while back I was asked to do an illustration of Courtney Justice for her new blog, The Fashion Court. So happy to see that it’s finally launched & looking fantastic! I was given great styling concepts to use & I love that I had to incorporate caffeine & a gavel within the illustration! My verdict: The Fashion Court is a truly entertaining & informative fashion site. Justice is served! xo
It’s chilly & grey in New York City, so that means I need some fun, colorful prints to brighten my day…and hopefully yours too! By now it’s no secret that I love this Dolce & Gabbana collection of oversized garden prints & jewels. This sheer dress covered in squash blossoms is the perfect look for a picnic in the park! Is it Spring yet? xoxo
I asked my intern, Natalie, what she would like me to paint for her blog & in a second she responded with, “Audrey Hepburn!” Sign me up, because I’m a huge fan. I was delighted.
Here’s one of the best quotes ever by the lovely lady:
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” -Audrey Hepburn
So lively, so classy, so fun! Netflix “Funny Face”- it’s one of my favorite movies in the world. You won’t be disappointed.
