The Newest For Trader Joe's

Here is a picture of my latest printed greeting cards for Trader Joe's. I believe they will be showing up in stores mid April. It's always a good mail day when I get a package of printed samples left on my doorstep!

Chinese Lanterns

I've long admired the simple beauty and grace of Chinese lanterns glowing and blowing in the evening breeze. They are terrific at adding ambience when celebrating a special event or just to make an ordinary evening just a bit more special. This design is from a recent greeting card project.

Blooming Tree

I came across the phrase "Bloom where you're planted" some time ago and finally decided to illustrate something with it as my inspiration. With spring knocking on the door, it just seems appropriate right now. I love the freshness and newness of spring. I hope you can take a walk in nature today and feel it's beauty in your life. Don't forget to bloom where you are planted!

Monkeying Around

I can understand why monkeys are such a favorite animal among kids and adults. They like to have a good time whether it is swinging from trees or just being mischievous. I have illustrated several kid's books with monkey characters in them and have now created a monkey pattern complete with their favorite food... bananas! I hope to do some companion patterns to turn this into a collection soon.

Gift Packaging

I have along history of designing paper products and I still enjoy working on each and every project that comes along. This gift packaging collection consists of a bag, a pillow box for gift cards as well as some small gift enclosures. The bag features glitter (oooh...aaah!). The collection is produced and distributed through The Gift Wrap Company.
