It all began with a simple study; a quick exploration of lipsticks in watercolor.
A few conversations later, I dreamt up two new fabric patterns for my friends over at Bow & Drape! The perfect feminine mix of lipsticks and florals.
Bow & Drape recently launched our collaborative collection, which you can see in it’s entirety here.
My personal favorites… the Pucker up Shirtwaist Dress, Pucker up Swing Dress, Gardenia Floral Shorts, and the Gardenia Floral Blazer.
I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring my watercolors off the paper and onto this beautiful collection- available for preorder now!

Last year, Jordan approached me about illustrating her new book, Ramshackle Glam: The New Mom’s Haphazard Guide to (Almost) Having It All. Here’s a look at the process behind the cover illustration…
Illustrating a book about being a new mom was a a new type of challenge… of course, I know absolutely nothing about being a new mom! We wanted to convey both Jordan’s quirky-glam personality, as well as something any new mom could relate to in one image.
My first draft illustration (above) seemed like a fine idea to me, until we quickly realized that storing a baby bottle and extra shoes in the same place is less than sanitary. (Whoops!)
I experimented with various perspectives, and various props… trying to figure out which viewpoint captured the message in the most instantaneous way.
and alas, we found the look we wanted…
Change the bag a bit… and voilá!
Check out the book for more than 20 illustrations scattered throughout!
To kick off New York Fashion Week, I went backstage at Lincoln Center, and fell into a sea of red gowns…
The runway show, Go Red for Women/ The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection, was brought to life by Subway and AHA to raise awareness for heart disease among women. The Red Dress itself is the centerpiece of the organization, and the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.
It was an inspiring show, full of influential women cascading down the runway. Actress AnnaSophia Robb and music artist Colbie Caillat, to incredible Olympic athletes such as Sasha Cohen and Lindsey Vonn; these women graced the stage (even on crutches!) with a powerful message to women around the world.
