“It’s beautiful. What is it.” This was everyone’s reaction to the watercolor packages. (spotted on instagram last week). They are press kits, and my team and I design them for every collaboration we take on. I’ve realized I haven’t shown you many of the behind the scenes at the office–In fact it dawned on us that you see only a small fraction of the projects being worked on, so today’s post is on our most recent press kits.
First, I called in Vanessa Kreckel at Two Paper Dolls to help me create custom boxes with my watercolor of the ring printed on the them. We also included laser cut envelopes which held exclusive photos of the ring set, the press kit, artist and designer photos and a watercolor of the set by yours truly.
Our Editorial Director, Kylie, added calligraphy to the labels, for a genuine wedding feel. Lastly, we included some rock candy to keep these kits extra sweet, and sent them off to twenty of our very favorites in the accessories biz.

I’m definitely not new to this, on-the-go lifestyle. For Mother’s Day, after spending some quality time with my own mom, I made my way over to the Westfield Garden State Plaza to illustrate and meet some mother daughter (and son!) duo’s!
There’s nothing I love more than meeting fans and followers.
As you know I’ve been traveling a lot for some fun events, and this Saturday I’ll be at Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus NJ! From 11:00am-3:00pm, I’ll be in the concierge lounge doing mommy-and-me fashion illustrations!!! I’ve had such a nice time meeting all of you and hope you will stop by and say hello, talk fashion, and stick around for a quick rendering.
Things have been crazy around the office lately leading up to the finale of our book photoshoots. If you’ve been following on social media you’ve already seen a lot of this hustle and bustle. One of our favorite locations is World Cafe Live at The Queen. It’s right in the middle of Wilmington, DE. High ceilings, huge, arched loft windows, and rustic exposed brick.
If you haven’t been to this venue–I highly recommend doing so! If you haven’t already, don’t forget to follow on instagram to see the behind-the-scenes of our book shoots. I can’t wait to show you the final pics.
I get to draw alot of celebs but drawing this beauty was extra fun and a nice break from the book illustrations this week. I decided to put Kendall in my favorite look of hers, that green Calvin Klein sparkler she wore to the Met Gala.
For those of you following along on instagram, you already know where I was this weekend. Another weekend drawing my heart out in Miami with La Prairie! The weather, the views, and the clients make it the perfect work getaway.
Bringing out the gold in everyone has been so fun, I can’t wait for the next visit. If only I could stick around long enough to enjoy the beautiful beach city!
Remember these fun little pallets I was painting on instagram a few weeks back? Well you can only imagine my excitement when Meghan from sent me the edible version! I was so flattered. How genius are these?
Cookies are on the left, and my paintings are on the right.
I spent this past weekend traveling through Atlanta and Miami–with my friends at La Prairie–for a few fun events. I got to turn their already glowing clients into true golden girls on paper, in celebration of their new Cellular Radiance Fluide (It’s made with gold, people!).
The clients were amazing. The weather wasn’t too bad either (more like awesome)– it was nice to get out of the snow for a bit! Exploring the cities on my down time was a huge plus as well.
I’ll say it, this job definitely has its perks. I have a few visits with them next month as well, follow along on instagram to stay in the loop!
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and the threats of snow, I’ve felt inspired by some stunning, bold coats. Bring on the reds, pinks, and faux fur. Sometimes you have to make your fashion statement from the outside in!
here are some favorite, flirty coats–just in time for vday!
