friday field trip (from the sketchbook).

fresno, california

my dad was an avid fisherman. he went fishing every monday, his one day off from working in his restaurants. he would usually come home with a very large black bass and cook it for dinner that night, in the traditional chinese style (steamed with lots of ginger, scallions, and cilantro). this is one of my most delicious childhood memories.

my studio, my love.

the natural heavenly light in my studio never ceases to amaze me. i never need turn the lights on during the day. every time i walk into my studio, a sense of calm washes over me like a warm ocean wave. my studio, to me, is peace, stillness, inspiration, and comfort . . . it is home.

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 !

happy new year.

looking back and reflecting on 2018 . . . i am completely filled with gratitude. it was an epic year for me. here are some of the highlights: i finished my third book (coming out april 30, 2019), i moved into a new office/art studio that completely changed my life, my husband and i bought a pied-à-terre in philadelphia to be able to spend more time with our east coast family, i taught a workshop in portugal, i taught a sketching workshop in morocco, i launched many new products (with many more to come in 2019 !). i had a profoundly busy year filled with both hard work and fun. and after 23 years, my business is still going strong. 

i am very VERY thankful to all of you who support my work, allowing me to do what i so love doing. YOU have made my dreams plausible + possible.

i wish for everyone a dreamy 2019.
