Winter Events

This post is an ENORMOUS thank you to everyone who came out and bought artwork, cards, or ornaments from me this past holiday season. I left my wonderful day job in September to work as an artist full time. This can be a super unpredictable career, but I feel so supported by all of you!

Here's a look at just a few of the events from November and December:

This one could be it's own post... it was a big one! I set up a shop with 4 other members of the Independent Makers of Philadelphia at Philadelphia's Christmas Village. We were in a special "Handmade in Philadelphia section". The market lasted from the week before Thanksgiving to New Year's Day.

Here's the beautiful setting:






Here are a few more photos from December events. There were a ton more, but how many pictures of my table do you need to see? Sometime I'll have to post a tour of what my set up looks like for indoor and outdoor events, and what fixtures/ display items I use.

Punk Rock Flea Market at Bok

Pet Portrait: Finbar



I had a great time drawing Finbar, and now that Christmas I can share this portrait.

This was a memorial portrait, and the request was for something green or Irish to go with the portrait. So, I added some celtic knots, and I researched some green and white butterflies that can be found in Ireland.

Here's a look at the preliminary drawing:

Here's a shot from my Instagram stories with a look at it in progress (on a Monday, haha):

Pet Portrait: Holly

Earlier this month I got to draw sweet Holly.


I wanted to include a holly plant without seeming too Christmasy, so I chose summer holly.

Here's a look at the preliminary drawing:




New on Etsy: Bat Card

I liked my Inktober bat drawing, so I redrew it in gouache and pencil.

It's now available on Etsy as a card


 Here's a look at part of the original drawing:
