Ever since I was a girl, wishes have filled my mind and led me through my life. I believe in wishes, and I believe that anything is possible.
Whether it’s sitting under a starry night’s sky, or listening to music on a train… moments alone inspire my wishes most. These quiet moments unlock my deepest desires for happiness in life, and help me figure out how to achieve them.
Of course, I pour my wishes out onto the pages of my sketchbooks. It’s wonderful to be able to flip back through the wishes of my life, and remember how each wish inspired the next.
A small town girl, tirelessly wishing to be an artist in the big city… these ideas were wishes and dreams long before they ever came true!
Having wishes allows you to aspire and often achieve great things that some may have thought to be impossible…
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

One of many illustrations I recently created for the Madison James bridal collection. More to come…
There’s something enchanting behind a piece of jewelry. I’ve always thought of my jewels as a keepsake for milestones and dreams… moments that contain limitless reminders and memories of life’s cherished moments.
The Amulette de Cartier is a piece full of pure magic. Opening like a padlock, it signifies a lucky charm of sorts; something I will cherish forever as it holds so many wishes and dreams of my own…
Follow along as I unlock my wish within the Amulette de Cartier through illustration next month.

Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity of bringing Jaeger-LeCoultre’s latest collection, Hybris Artistica (watch this!), to life through art at the Nomad Hotel in New York City.
Jaeger-LeCoultre is known for their mastery in fine watchmaking. The amount of detail and time that is poured into each piece is mind blowing, to say the least.The Hybris Artistica collection celebrates their well known mastery in combination with a beautifully creative vision. I truly fell in love with each piece!
Reinterpreting these pieces through my art was a new challenge. I set out to find the perfect balance between loose whimsical lines while celebrating the intricate details of each piece…
