sketchy.

i was AMAZED at how well these beautiful students took to sketching and painting. some of them claim they had never even drawn before, which only reinforces my belief that we were ALL born artists. sometimes we just need a little push and encouragement to get things going.

such a satisfying day.

my book has launched !

my new book France: Inspiration du Jour” (chronicle books) was released today ! the book is a peak inside my actual sketchbooks during sojourns in france: a compilation of sketches, photos, and musings. you will learn what inspires and amuses me. i never intended for anyone to ever look through my sketchbooks (let alone publish them) so it’s kind of a funny feeling . . . but a good exercise and lesson in overcoming my shyness.

you are invited to my studio for the launch party and book signing event. there will be plenty of macarons, rosé, and lots of goodies for mama’s day ! . . .

and you will get a free french rock with each book purchase (while supply lasts).

i hope you come by to say bonjour !
