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.

friday field trip (from the sketchbook).


i’ve been working really hard on my upcoming book (the french sketchbook, chronicle books). the book will be filled with sketches from my travel journals of france. curating this book is proving MUCH more difficult than meets the eye. i’m taking six sketchbooks and rolling them in one book, along with photos. i have an impending deadline and am trying to beat the clock !

friday field trip (from the sketchbook).

july 2007
jardin du luxembourg
paris, france. 

i LOVE the scattering of green chairs throughout this garden. they tell such a story the way they are left positioned. in groupings, some facing each other, some facing away from each other, and the alone ones off by themselves. so obscure. so fascinating to me.
