Thank you to everyone who attended The Sleep Catcher Book Release & Signing at the Novel Neighbor in Webster Groves! We were blown away by your support.
The Sleep Catcher is a captivating wordless tale about a young girl's quest to fall asleep. The book takes place in St. Louis and has pictures of many landmarks from our city. The Sleep Catcher story was created by Za Goodbrake, and illustrated by Melissa Rohr. It can now be purchased on The Inky Octopus and Amazon.
Here are a few of my illustrations that were on display at SOHA Studio and Gallery's annual Holiday Gift Show this past December. I always enjoy visiting this show, and usually come away with several new treasures. This year was no different - I found a beautiful glass ornament and fun illustrated card to take home! December's show featured a collection of wearables, ornaments, housewares, and art by over sixty St. Louis makers. Thank you to those of you who supported St. Louis artists!
My husband Matt and I were interviewed by photojournalist Randy Schwentker this past September regarding Strange Folk Festival. Check out the full video at KSDK.com!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by Strange Folk Festival at St. Louis Union Station this past weekend! It was nice seeing some fans, and meeting some new ones. The setting was quite unique; we enjoyed our booth spot by the pond.
I enjoyed stopping by the current art exhibit at Barnes-Jewish Hospital today!
My illustration, Octopus & Yo-Yos, was chosen for this exhibit, along with the work of 15 other local artists. This installation is available to view 24 hours a day, in the hallway adjacent to the South Lobby of the main campus of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The exhibit will be open through June 11, 2015. You can learn more about Joy here.
I had a great time at Paint Webster this past weekend. I was really impressed with all of the work from the over 100 artists that participated this year; it was really inspiring!
