friday field trip (from the sketchbook).

i am naturally drawn to earthy and muddy colors. that is how i mostly dress, and those are the types of colors that usually end up in my works. but when i look closely around the world, i find it is filled with so many bright and delightful colors. i will intentionally draw things i see with such color and then i will refer back to them in my sketchbooks and they will spark new ideas. 

this is a page out of my new book In Pursuit of Inspiration: trust your instincts and make more art. the chapter is called IN COLOR and it talks a little bit more about what i just said !

happy mama’s day !

my beautiful mother is the one responsible for sending me down my creative path. not only did she start me in piano lessons at age four, but she also took my siblings and me to the local hobby shop once a week and let us choose anything we wanted. she always had us working on creative projects . . . our hands were always busy.

this is why i dedicated my latest book to her . . . i LOVE my MAMA !

let’s sketch !

everyone who buys a book at my BOOK LAUNCH this saturday will get a free sketchbook ! we were ALL born with natural creative instincts . . . we just have to tap into them. i always carry a sketchbook with me. i think keeping your drawings and musings in one book helps keep you on the right artistic track and it’s so fun to look back through it to see your progress, where you’ve been, what inspired you, etc.

LET’S SKETCH !

the official launch party for my new book IN PURSUIT OF INSPIRATION will be at my berkeley studio on may 4th. i’m very excited to have this book out in the world. i think that we were all born as artists with natural creative instincts that we just need to tap into. hopefully, my book will give you some ideas of where to begin.

i hope you can come . . . you will be able to buy a book, have me sign it, eat some macarons, drink some rosé, and celebrate the creativity in all of us (there will also be some free giveaways !).

i have SO MANY pairs of reading glasses. i hate being caught without them so i leave them in all of my most important places: bedside table, office desk, studio desk, car, kitchen, purse, etc . . . i always find the cutest ones at whole foods. the right pair of glasses can actually MAKE the outfit !

friday field trip (from the sketchbook).

27 february 2019
the central valley.

the stretch on I-5, between the altamont pass and los banos, is painfully beautiful to me no matter what season it is. i drool over the landscape on every single drive (and i drive this stretch a LOT).
