Bio:

I created my business with the intent of making and illustrating artwork and textiles. Since graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design, I've worked with all kinds of amazing clients! My philosophy for design is handmade and hand painted influence, with flexibility and understanding of modern technology. I work both with gouache acrylic and digital mediums, and often blend them to achieve my unique textures. My inspiration for each design is drawn from folk art, old stories and memories from childhood, painters and storytellers from times gone by.

A 2nd part to my previous constellation map, this time Spring & Summer - I decided to make this one brighter and full of stars. I always felt like the Summer skies were fuller of stars, but that could just be me :)
