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 !

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 !

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 !

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 !
