Blossom Spirits
A young Japanese boy beseeches the wise spirits of the cherry blossom
tree to help him find his lost friend. Petals and magic swirl around him
in the glowing moonlight as he stands under the ancient tree wearing an
intricate hakama.

Aegean Princess
A beautiful Aegean Princess meditates blissfully in the warmth of the
Mediterranean sunshine. Her giant tiger striped nautilus shell glides
peaceful across the clam blue sea as she turns her face upward in the
salty breeze. About her flying fish soar and splash into the air.

Little Sprout
A kindly princess kneels on a mossy stump, in a pool of warm sunlight, surrounded by tulips and sprouting plants. In her hands she cups a precious sentient baby Sprout, whom she has rescued from grave peril on her forest journey. She is currently unaware of the other larger Sprouts quietly waking up behind her.

Golden Antler
upon a time, in the Far North, lived two sisters whose only memento of their
father was a broken shard of golden antler…

piece was inspired by northern lights and fairytales. At the start of the new
year my thoughts turn toward giving and spreading light to a world that has so
much need of it. The antlers as lights unto themselves really appeal to me on a
deep and visceral level. I was also happy to paint a new piece set in the snow!
As anyone who knows me can tell you, I absolutely adore snowy weather and find
a certain magic in it. The story of the piece is not from an existing
fairytale, but rather is from a brand new fairytale that I'm writing.

Prairie Sea
Four siblings set sail on the high Prairie Sea, surging
over the submerged fields at golden hour as a playful group of
prairie dogs paddle alongside.

This piece was
inspired by my childhood growing up in Oklahoma.
It's as much a reflection of the landscape I came
from, as my inner landscape as a child. As a young
girl I was absorbed by the fantasy world of Narnia
and the pioneer life of Laura Ingalls Wilder. This
image gives nods to both. My 3 siblings and I were
known to engage in fantastical play, so the idea of
combining the two into one image -where it's hard to
tell where reality stops and fantasy begins- is
quite intriguing to me. The Scissor-tailed
Flycatchers soaring into the sky are the Oklahoma
state bird and the distant house was our first
childhood home.
