New Parakeet Pattern

Can't help it, I love drawing birds. Parakeets are such social little birds- it is so much fun and even amusing to watch them flutter around. They are the inspiration for this Floral Parakeet pattern, fresh off the drawing board.

New Work- Bug Collection

When I visit a natural history museum, I am most drawn to their insect and butterfly displays. I would love to have a display case in my living room but am also creeped out by the bugs at the same time! So I decided to solve this problem and create a bug illustration that I could live with in my own home. Available for purchase here.

New Minted Competition

Another thing that I love designing for is stationery. Over the years I have created wedding invitations, baby shower paper goods and more for friends but have always dreamed of doing it professionally. When I saw that Minted is hosting a Graduation Challenge, I was excited to work on some designs. Here is my Blooming Graduation, vote for it here!

Mini & Me Available on Spoonflower

To celebrate the upcoming arriving of the first baby in my life, I have created this "Mini & Me" collection, available here. As a designer with a picky eye, it has been so hard for me to find boy patterns that I loved so I decided to create my own. I feel very thankful to have a mother with insane sewing skills who will be hard at work making bibs and blankets with these patterns. Updates soon!

Vienna | Bratislava | Budapest

It was so hard not to post more photos of my recent trip but here are some of my favorites! 

The Secession Building designed by Joseph Maria Olbrich

Highlight of my time in Vienna, watching a horse show at the Spanish Riding School.

We stayed in Bratislava for the night. The capital was actually really charming!

Budapest was so beautiful. I loved wandering the streets of the old Jewish Quarter during the day or at night. That area has great Ruinbars. 

The pattern work at the Kazinczy Street Synagogue was so detailed, really inspiring.

Art Institute of Chicago

I had a chance to explore the Art Institute of Chicago last week on a quiet day. 
The museum wasn't packed at all and I found myself alone in many areas (which I love!) 
Here are some pictures that I took, playing with chiaroscuro. High contrast black and 
white photos are my fav.

So excited to receive my new personalized stationery set in the mail. I love sending random 
snail mail hellos and these beauties will do the job. The back of each card has my favorite 
Parrot Paradise pattern for a modern jungle vibe.

Baha'i Temple

I was really excited when a friend visiting Chicago suggested that we check out the Baha'i Temple to view its gorgeous architecture. Driving up to the building, I was awestruck with how beautiful and unexpected it looks. I loved the contrast of the white stone against the intense blue sky that day. They have a great information center, I'm surprised with how little I knew about Baha'i faith.

This a model of the building!

Radish Experiment

Last summer after my move to Chicago, I started making regular trips to farmers markets and was awe struck with the different varieties of radishes. They are so vibrant and come in beautiful shades of purple, red and pink. Not to mention that they are delicious and pleasantly bitter. I noticed while cleaning them, their dye would wash away in the sink. So I decided to experiment and created splatter swatches that I can scan and use as texture in my artwork. Here is the result.
