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 !

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).

in pursuit of inspiration.

i received an advance copy of my upcoming book In Pursuit of Inspiration: trust your instincts and make more art. i don’t have my elevator pitch down just yet, but the book is about some of the things that i do in my own art practice and in my own pursuit of inspiration. it is NOT a how-to book, but rather a show and tell of things that work for me. it is a compilation of sketches from my own sketchbooks and photos from my journeys through life. i’m hoping it will spark ways for you to bring more creativity into your own lives. i believe that we were all born as artists with natural instincts and abilities to create, sometimes we just need to find a way to tap back into them.

you can read a little more about the book HERE and you can get a sneak peak of the book HERE.

In Pursuit of Inspiration will be in stores on april 30th BUT you can pre-order NOW . . . and if you do, you can get a free signed bookplate by me by going HERE !

à la française.

i’m pleased to reveal the cover of my upcoming book, “France: Inspiration du Jour” (chronicle books). this is my next book which is a compilation of sketches and photos that i have taken during my sojourns in france. this book is very close to my heart and feels incredibly revealing, as i had never intended for anyone to see my personal sketchbook (let alone to actually have it published !?) . . .  but i’m very much into stepping out of my comfort zone. this book will be out on may 2nd, but you can pre-order it NOW here. and you can also get a sneak peek of the inside HERE.

drawing with nature.

i’m working on FIVE sketchbooks here in vermont. one of them is writing one of my favorite quotes with something that i have found in nature, and then doing a watercolor sketch of said object. this is bringing me such joy. you can see more of the entries here.

the cape cod scene.

the beaches in cape cod are spectacular.

you can’t go to cape cod and not eat LOBSTER rolls !
when the lobster starts blinking . . . your rolls are READY !

i’m fascinated with skate egg cases.  

they were all over the beaches and i had to take four of them for inspiration. 

surf’s UP !
