I know it’s been forever and a day since I posted, but HELLO I don’t have to explain why… haha! Being a new mom in a pandemic has kept me more than busy! I feel guilty for saying it’s been an amazing year and a half. Like any creative, I took advantage of having more time at home to give myself a new challenge- portrait drawing with colored pencils! I believe that my experience as a portrait photographer, intricacies of light and LOVE OF ALL THINGS ANTIQUE had led me straight to this glorious avenue. I love finding vintage frames to combine with these portraits. ALSO!!! If you have been following me any length of time you know that I also have an affinity for finding vintage letters. So this is really and truly the culmination of all things that I love. I have had so much fun experimenting with drawing and incorporating these letters from the late 1800s.
