Thank you so much for following along, and I hope you have a peaceful month ahead of you; one that reveals the start of growth from the seeds you've been planting all year, after the quiet stillness of Winter.
Happy March, everyone :) It's been getting a bit warmer in Atlanta, and all of the flowers are starting to bloom! My daily walks with Patty in our budding neighborhood are the source of inspiration for this month's happy wallpaper. I used Winsor & Newton watercolors and a soundtrack of Florence + the Machine to create this for you. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much - I hope this wallpaper gives you a sunny disposition heading into the month!
This month was all about COLOR. I love rich, china blues. It's been incredibly rainy here in Atlanta (like, for weekssss), so I also wanted to do a tribute to the downpour, and the resulting bloom-age that is slowly filling up my studio windows :) My dog, Patty, does not like it one bit (diva).
Now for the Wallpaper! Click on the graphic above to download the free desktop wallpaper. AND, after many requests, I have made a coordinating phone background as well, tucked in there too. Sorry it took me so long, y'all!
If you like these, please tell your friends about it, and tag me on Instagram with a pic of your desktop or phone in your feed or stories! Cheers, Enjoy, and hopefully it's not too rainy where you live.
As always, thank you for following my work. I love the experimentation + freedom these monthly wallpapers bring, and I'm so happy to share them with you.
Hello friends in love + equality, happy March! I can't believe it's already here, and as I am writing this, my balcony door is open and the first breezes and rumbles of a March thunderstorm are rolling in.
This month, I created a new illustration for our Desktop Wallpaper, starting with a pencil sketch, painting with india ink, and finally lining with my Faber Castell Artist Pitt Pen. The colors for this one gave me a bit of a time, but when I popped in that spot of lime, I was in love. I hope you enjoy it too!
Here's a close-up of my inking process:
