April 2018 Illustrated Wallpaper

Happy April, and Happy Easter, for those who celebrate. If you don't celebrate, then cheers to more sunshine - which we are finally having here in Atlanta! And what inspired April's Wallpaper.

Hello March, aka All The Rain - 2018

  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.

Hello February!

Happy February! I read the other day that February is the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, so this month's wallpaper is dedicated to the contemplation of the seeds we will plant this Spring season, metaphorically and physically. I love that idea, and I wanted to create an illustration that symbolized new growth, even in the last winter months. I'm very much looking forward to the warmer weather! Now, on to the Wallpaper! Click on the graphic above to download the free wallpaper. And feel free to share your space with me on Instagram! Cheers, Enjoy, and scroll down to see some detail + behind the scenes shots.

Welcome December!

We love you, you are literally making our dreams come true. If that's not good karma, I don't know what is.Now, on to the...
