Art Journaling and a video

I am so thrilled to announce that I am the cover artist for the Spring addition of Art Journaling magazine!!


About 3 weeks ago I saw a coyote run through my front yard. The timing was utterly perfect.
Then, the same night, I woke up and noticed the full moon shining so bright and looked outside. I saw what I thought was the same coyote but as my eyes adjusted it was the legs of deer feasting on clover. perfection. I then knew I wanted to capture this painting that was in my head. I hope you enjoy. 
I have truly been inspired by the inspiring, Anne Patay. please check out her work. 
I have honestly not been the same since!!

I just love the stories you paint, they are just magical. I'm slogging through the final class of my master's program with very little time to paint and too much stress. Watching you paint is so therapeutic! Once I'm done with going to school, I'm painting!
