Feathered & Measured - inspired by Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species. This was created for Gallery1988 West’s show, Required Reading - which is currently running from December 6th - 22nd. You can buy prints here!
This piece involved a significant amount of research into the finches that Darwin studied on the Galapagos Islands. Here are eight of those finch types - grouped by location, diet and beak shape. I had pages upon pages of research for this piece before I committed to a sketch! It was really fun to spend all that time learning about it!
Brooklyn Botanic Garden, for Light Grey Art Lab's 6 Degrees show. Each artist in the show created something local and personal. I recently moved to Brooklyn, NY - which is quite an overwhelming change for someone who grew up in North Carolina and spent the past three years in Savannah, GA. The Botanic Garden feels like home to my floral soul. You can purchase some limited edition post cards made for the show, or a 12 x 17 archival print here.
Thanks to LGAL for the amazing show - its always an honor and a pleasure to work with the gallery. They’re currently having a Black Friday - Cyber Monday sale in their shop, so check it out!
Need somewhere to write down your grandmother’s famous mashed potatoes recipe? Then look no further than these holiday recipe cards! I originally created the border for Emma Magazine's November issue, and I decided to repurpose it for some sweet recipe cards (among other things, to be posted soon!)
Here’s a sneak peek at my image for Light Grey Art Lab's show 6 Degrees! I'm so excited to share a little piece of one of my favorite places here in Brooklyn - and to get a bunch of new postcards from over 80 artists across the globe. I'll be posting the final image later this month.
Are you an artist?
Are you a fan of Orange is the New Black?
Do you have Orange is the New Black fan art?
Do you want to create some OITNB fan art??
Do you want to immortalize that awkward as hell earring-toothpick scene in an OITNB fan zine? ?!
Just in time for hot chocolate and wintery weather, Society6 has added mugs! Check out my collection of mugs here.
Here’s an official thank you to Tumblr Radar and all my new followers (and all my old followers, too)!
I’m a nature-loving Brooklyn based illustrator, originally from North Carolina. I post all my work here from works in progress to finished pieces. I’m also on Twitter, Facebook, Society6, Instagram, and my portfolio is here. Thanks again! You are all amazing.

I’m in Charleston Magazine’s November issue! The article is about two lighthouses that mark the entrance to Charleston Harbor, Sullivan’s Lighthouse and Morris Island Lighthouse. Pick up a copy near you!
