For Halloween this past year, I made a dope shell crown for my costume. I am really stoked on how it came out and figured that when I died my whole head pink, it was the perfect time to photography my art project. I am trying to test the waters with these guys and will make them on special request or custom order. Please just fill out my contact page with your request and we can work something out. I had a great time dying my hair pink as well. The color washes out faster than you think so I took the plunge and just went for it. It's funny seeing people's reactions to your pink hair. It felt so punk rock to me. Special thanks to Jadyn and Loren for dying my hair! They did such a great job with the different colors and to Alex Noble for taking the pictures and capturing my vision. I feel so blessed to have so many rad creative people in my life! I am available to help with styling and photoshoots so if you have a vision and and need help bringing it to life, feel free to reach out. xx
The desert always holds a magical place in my heart. This is partly due to my time in Tucson, Arizona, as well as my love for dramatic landscapes and warm weather. Since graduating from college, I have made a commitment to still take a Spring Break. It's much needed with my demanding work schedule and this Spring season was the best in years because of the rain. Benji flew over from Hawaii and proposed to me (more posts to come!!) right before our trip we had planned to Joshua Tree so this was our first time as newly engaged couple. Hope you enjoy the pics and are inspired to make a trip out there.
The first night we tried to camp, we weren't able to find a spot in the park because it was like freaking Disneyland in there so we stayed at this sketchy motel that has different themed rooms. It was a pretty fun spot and I would recommend it. It's a little over priced but its worth the experience.
Practicing my hand lettering and caligraphy. Fun little water color drawing I made last week :)
Printed postcard design for Anacapa Architecture for their rebranding event. 4 inches by 6 inches, matte finish, 4 different versions.

"Anacapa’s design philosophy translates into thriving community intersections and distinctive private residences. By focusing on the cultural and environmental impacts of reshaping space, Anacapa balances the social responsibility of urban planning and development, while daring to implement unexpected and imaginative functionality.
Established in Santa Barbara, California as Dan Weber Architecture, Anacapa emerged in November 2016, as a way of honoring the collective contribution underlying our design ethos. Anacapa illustrates a connection to the Santa Barbara Channel’s ecological history and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the local community that has nurtured our vision. Our studio was founded in the Funk Zone on Anacapa Street, a distinct locality magnetized by lively grassroots commerce. This uncontested hallowed ground nurtured our company’s roots and remains fundamental to our creative identity."
Crafting on some yarn art lately.
Little painting I created. Acrylic paint with sharpie and paint pens on vellum paper.
I have been working on my home for the past year and I am really really happy how it is coming out so I figured I would post - because creating space is just as important as creating art, it is the same thing, just a different medium for me :) My goal with feng shui is to create a space that supports my goals and serves as a container to foster the energy I am trying to create with my life. For me, this room needs to feel a level of comfort so that I can rest, but also inspire me to do my work. More importantly, these two rooms - both the dining and living room - need to welcome those who enter into my home, provide my guests with relaxation, and leave them feeling inspired.
Just messing around with Adobe Illustrator ...
