Paris at Night


Paris is a magical city to me. I am so inspired by the beauty and the architecture. If you have the chance to go to Paris take a walk around the city at night. Take a cruise along the Seine or just walk down the streets. If you have the opportunity visit the Louvre at night. It has to be my favorite. There is something magical about the Louvre at night. So please join me on a walk through Paris at night.

I hope you have enjoyed your walk through Paris. All of these prints are available on my etsy site

I love you print is available again on Etsy


For the last week I had 3 prints that were featured on the website One Kings Lane. A lot of people were looking to purchase them in different sizes on etsy but they were not available. They are back in my etsy shop and available for purchase in ALL sizes!

Rainy Day at the Louvre


Last Easter I was in Paris, I was only in Paris for 8 days and I thought everything was going to be closed on Easter. Much to my surprise I was wrong! I was so happy that the city was alive and open on Easter Sunday. I spent the day on a bike ride tour through the city. The afternoon was spent at the Louvre. The line was the longest people had seen in years. It was the first Sunday of the month which meant the Louvre was FREE. I was standing in the courtyard of the Louvre and all of the sudden there was a huge hail storm. The long lines of people that were in line at the Louvre were caught in the storm. Of course this was a perfect opportunity for me to capture the moment. I stood without an umbrella in the courtyard being pounded by hail while I took these photographs. Happy Easter and Enjoy!

A new venture into wholesale


In January I participated in the wholesale show Beckmans at the Merchandise Mart here in Chicago. This was a new venture into the wholesale world. I am happy to say I have work in stores in Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota, and Illinois.

I had the opportunity to visit one of my stores today in Highland Park, IL called CityWoods  Here is a photograph of some of my pieces on their wall. They do a great job merchandising their store. If you are in the area stop by and take a look!

Whimsical Spring


Living in Chicago, Spring still feels far away as tulips are fighting through snow covered grass. I recently took a trip to my home town of Cincinnati. They are used to having 70 degree days and the trees are all in bloom. I took a walk around beautiful Alt park and came across this Magnolia tree.

Stay tuned for more blooms from Chicago!
