Wedding Venues & Services magazine, published in the United Kingdom, will be featuring an wedding illustration of mine with one of their feature stories in their next issue! More to come later…

I had the opportunity to create this festive card for Southern Bride magazine this season. I had been playing around with sketches for my own holiday card featuring a girl in a candy cane dreamland, and thought this wonderland would be beautiful with a happy bride in her gown and veil, decked out in diamonds, with diamond snow drops falling all around her. This is how it all turned out!
Wishing everyone a fun-filled holiday and a totally fabulous 2009!
“Candy Cane Wonderland”
Watercolor on Paper, 18″ x 24″
Inspirations: Candy Canes, Watermelons, baking sugar cookies and funky cupcakes, “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Mele Kalikimaka” (the Hawaiian Christmas Song)
Oil on Canvas, 20″ x 16″
I’m finally done with my latest illustration! This wedding illustration will accompany a wedding planners memoir that will highlight the best wedding moments of the year. It will be published in Southern Bride Magazine this fall.
I’ve been working on a sketch for Southern Bride Magazine, and will be coloring the illustration today. I thought I’d post my working sketch to illustrate my process…

This weekend was Michelle and Roger’s wedding….it turned out beautifully….there were thunderstorms the night before and rain the day of…but nothing–save this light sprinkle–at the wedding. Yay!

For the last year and a half, I have been posting paintings to this blog. Since I am doing more and more illustrations these days, I’ve decided to add my illustrations to the blog. From now on, I’ll be posting artwork in various mediums…from oil paintings to watercolors to digital illustrations. So to jump right in, here’s my latest illustration…it was commissioned by Southern Bride Magazine.
This wedding illustration will be both published in Southern Bride Magazine for their new wedding announcements section, and printed as postcards that will be sent out. Exciting!
Well, I guess I’ve got weddings on the brain…in just a couple more days I leave for St. Lucia…so it’s definitely appropriate that I just completed two new illustrations for Southern Bride Magazine!
